This is the official PHP library for interacting with the Alfresco platform API from a PHP application. The library is developed and maintained by Alfresco, and comes well-documented. Alfresco is an enterprise content platform for storing and sharing important documents such as strategic plans, customer profiles, sales presentations, invoices, and contracts. It also features social tools that let people within a company share and discover content the same way they do with social media. Alfresco provides both a Cloud (SaaS) offering as well as an on-premises edition. It readily integrates with mobile devices (via a dedicated application), MS Office, Apple iWork, Adobe Creative Suite, Google Docs, and more. Many of Alfresco's features are accessible programmatically via REST-like APIs as well as the CMIS API.
