A quick tour of the features

Propel has some nice features you should know about:

  • It's a fast and easy way to manage your database;
  • It provides command line tools for generating code (well documented with an IDE-friendly syntax);
  • It's very flexible: you can simply extend Propel;
  • It uses PDO (PHP Data Objects) so it allows you to use the RDBMS of your choice (MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, Oracle and MSSQL are supported);
  • Propel is an open-source project which is well documented.
