I'm really frustrated with the choice of platforms out there and I'm looking for a new one.
Currently using Magento (ce), but very annoyed by it in general (I won't moan here).

Do you know of a platform that meets the following criteria?:

  • Written in PHP (encase I need to extend functionality)
  • Uses jQuery as it's frontend library (or no library at all, so I can implement jQuery without extra overhead of another library).
  • MVC design pattern.
  • Isn't hideously bloated and is relatively fast.
  • Is not a cloud based solution.
  • Don't mind paying a one off price (even if it's a lot), but I don't want to pay a subscription.
  • Doesn't need to be full featured as a lot of functionality needed is custom and I will code myself.

Any ideas?
