It offers an intuitive and efficient way to work with databases, reducing the complexities of SQL queries. Orpheus' ORM seamlessly maps database tables to PHP objects, allowing developers to manipulate data using familiar object-oriented principles. This simplifies code, enhances maintainability, and accelerates development.

History of Orpheus, told by its author

Prior to 2012, there was no Orpheus framework; instead, a collection of tools had been in development since 2007. In 2012, the framework market was relatively undeveloped, with no standout contenders.
Consequently, the need arose to reuse specific features across projects and standardize access to a module (commonly referred to as a controller) responsible for managing control and view aspects. During that time, the project relied on SVN as its Version Control System.
Today, Orpheus has integrated the MVC architecture while transitioning to Git and Composer for version control and package management, respectively.
