Respect / Relational – the simplest ORM framework for php

Basically all the main programming languages currently have ORM frameworks (Object Relational Mapping), which help a lot the development of applications (under the object orientation paradigm – OOP) that persist in relational databases (like MySQL, Postgre, SQL Server, among others).
