In development of modern web application, your service usually consumed by various kinds of clients with different manners. You may have web site for browser user, private apis for mobile clients, public apis for third-party developers and internal apis for queues or job workers. Genji helps you write reusable code by providing extensible plugin/middleware system, routing/transport agnostic application class, models fields validation and custom getter/setter method, views layout manager and namespaced template overriding, url routing with hook support. While it doesn't mean you have to stick with a particular development style or technology, genji is highly modular designed and customizable, so you can decide which part of the framework to use and how.
