Fuel is a fast, lightweight PHP 5.3 framework. In an age where frameworks are a dime a dozen, We believe that Fuel will stand out in the crowd. It will do this by combining all the things you love about the great frameworks out there, while getting rid of the bad.

Downloading Fuel

Since Fuel uses Submodules and since GitHub Downloads don't support submodules, do not download Fuel using the Downloads link here.

We will be putting a "Download" section on soon.

Cloning Fuel

Fuel uses submodules for things like the core folder. After you clone the repository you will need to init and update the submodules.

Here is the basic usage:

git clone --recursive git://

The above command is the same as running:

git clone git://
cd fuel/
git submodule init
git submodule update

You can also shorten the last two commands to one:

git submodule update --init


Donate Here

Any donations would help support the framework and pay for software, development and hosting costs. We understand if you cannot, but greatly appreciate anything you can give.
