General

Parthenon is a business application framework that is built upon the Symfony web framework. It uses the Symfony web framework to handle the interactions with the web and it handles things that a company would need to take care of themselves either via bespoke development or open source libraries.

Parthenon is for people who are starting a new project that they hope to turn into a company and want to reduce their time to market.

It is also for companies who are looking to build on top of software that isn't developed by volunteers who can provide guarantees.

If your current system is built upon Symfony then you will be able to start integrating Parthenon into your current system and only use the modules you want to use.

Yes! We provide a 30-day refund policy. You can ask for a refund without the need to provide a reason.

No, you're entirely free to use whatever frontend framework you want. We've just used Vue for now. We plan on adding other skeleton applications with other frameworks.

With most frameworks they provide with the framework to build business applications however they do not provide any of the functionality. Their authentication systems only have the authentication but not the user sign ups, the forgotten passwords systems, etc that are expected of a basic application.

Currently, open-source libraries are massively underfunded and only maintained by volunteers who have day jobs. They're ability to maintain these applications are obivously very limited. Since this is a commercial product with commercial licensing we're able to provide a base level service. You can read our blog post on this here.

In some cases, we do use open-source libraries but what we do is we abstract away the library and provide the glue to connect the framework with the library. This allows you to build with confidence without having to worry about the libaries breaking changes.

We use Gumroad for the affiliates system. Since we're a new startup we don't want anyone to be worried about our ability to deliver on affiliate offers. With Gumroad the credibility that everything is all above board is automatic.
