Sapphire Web Framework
The power of SilverStripe lies on the Sapphire Web Framework. Sapphire Web framework provides the underlying tools upon which the CMS system is built.

The methods of doing this are straight forward as they are defined by Sapphire and the coding convention keeps the site easy to read and understand; as long as it is followed. The Sapphire Framework is written in object oriented PHP.
