Currently, there are a lot of frameworks to build web applications working with the architectural pattern MVC (Model View Controller). One interesting approach is based on using 3-layer models, which allow identifying and separating the final application in different layers that facilitates its construction and maintenance. The purpose of this paper is to present our approach of a framework for developing PHP web applications using a 3-layer model. This approach integrates different technologies and design patterns in order to provide one tool that supports the community in the creation of PHP web applications by providing build-in tools and applying good practices focused on the pursue of proper development times. In addition, the approach aims to handle common issues in the industry like efficiency, maintainability, and security.
