FuelPHP is an open-source web application framework written in PHP which implements the HMVC pattern.
The FuelPHP project started in October 2010.
The major contributors to FuelPHP are Harro Verton, Jelmer Schreuder, Dan Horrigan, Philip Sturgeon and Frank de Jonge. In November 2013, Steve West joined the development team.
Philip Sturgeon and Dan Horrigan have contributed to the CodeIgniter framework.
The first version of FuelPHP (FuelPHP 1.0) was developed under the GitHub repository named Fuel. Another GitHub repository named FuelPHP was created for the development of the second version (FuelPHP 2.0).

The project guideline is:
- Building a framework based on the best ideas from other frameworks.
- The framework must provide powerful functionalities, it must be easy to work with and it should have a lightweight codebase.
- Taking account of community developers' orientations.
- FuelPHP is written in PHP 5.3. and requires at least 5.3.3 for V1.x.
- Cascading File System (inspired by Kohana framework): a directory structure partially based on namespaces used by classes.
- Flexibility: almost every component of the core framework can be extended or replaced.
- Modularity: applications can be divided up into modules.
- Extensibility: additional functionalities can be added to the framework through packages.
- The Auth package provides a set of components with which authentication and authorization application functionalities can be built.Sentry is another authentication and authorization package for FuelPHP.
- A caching system.
For the new version (V2) currently under development, some very significant changes are planned:
- It will be fully installable using Composer
- It will require PHP 5.4+
- The framework core will be split up in different Composer packages, most framework independent
- Fuel applications will be independent packages as well, Composer installable
- The framework will support multiple applications in a single installation
- "Oil" will become a separate application, with commandline, terminal and HTML support
- "Oil" will contain a generic admin backend for your applications
- Complete platform independent DBAL, including a schema manager
- Completely unit tested, with 100% code coverage
- Fully object oriented, no static code in the core anymore
Some of the features of the V1 release will be made available as separate V2 packages, for others a compatibility package will be created. This will minimize the impact when an existing application has to be migrated
