# What is Chevere?

Chevere is a strict, strong-typed PHP development library. It is the stuff developers use to build other software as it is an small software package providing the core tooling needed to organize and run the logic of any given software application.

💡 The term chévere is ubiquitous in Latin America, known in every Spanish speaking country and it means cool/awesome.

# Core concepts

# Clean & Typed

Chevere follows Clean Code (opens new window) principles, which can be resumed as the practice of creating code that is easy to understand, to change and maintain.

# Extensible

A core library tooling for general purposes, with enough flexibility to allow the creation a myriad of systems with the same know-how. Also packages for specific needs.

# Modern & High quality

All-new PHP 8 codebase with strict standards. Chevere has been designed from scratch for PHP 8, and it uses all the goodies added to it. On top of that it follows own high quality standards.

# Why Chevere and not X?

If you can use software from well-known vendors why you should use Chevere?

Main reason for Chevere is its high quality with a clean syntax. You can tell that by interacting with Chevere and because the code is scrutinized by several third-party tools.

It is day and night when the arguments to use a codebase are vague subjective terms like expressive syntax or well-maintained compared to objetive code measure metrics.

# Who makes Chevere?

Chevere is driven by Chevereto (opens new window) and is made by the same author (Rodolfo Berrios (opens new window), hi) with solid 18+ years of experience building systems.

Chevere was created as the supporting framework for Chevereto, and Chevereto supports Chevere's development.
