Pheasant Documentation

Pheasant is a bare-bones data mapper written specifically for PHP 5.3.1+ and MySQL. Rather than focus on abstraction and rich feature sets, Pheasant focuses on a performance and simplicity.

Despite it’s small foot-print (<5k LOC), Pheasant packs a punch and offers:

  • Easy persistence for objects: create, update and delete
  • Property mapping for common types
  • Relationships: One-to-one, One-to-many
  • Fluid querying
  • Events system for extension
