PHPDevShell is lightly based on MVC but does support complex MVC. Everything can be done in a single controller. PHPDevShell is not a Content Management System with which you would typically create websites with, it would usually be used as back-end administration, advanced complex websites. PHPDevShell is not in competition with any other framework nor does it provide the same solution, it is for simplicity, small teams with low resources. PHPDevShell is not a code generator, you still need to be fluent with PHP development.
