My friend Juozas “Joe” Kaziukėnas recently penned a blog post titled “The new era of PHP frameworks” in which he talks about PHP frameworks. He talks briefly about where frameworks started, and why they are important. Moving forward, he talks about the next generation of frameworks, and about some of his likes and dislikes.
Here, let me give you a quick example.
I’m not entirely sure that I like growing list of features directly ported from Java environment. Java works differently (and requires 1GB of RAM) so even DiC is tricky in PHP. We’ll see where it gets us, but so far I’m a bit worried because I know that PHP likes light systems rather than complicate objects’ graphs. As much as cool those patterns sound, they can create more problems then solve.
If you are interested in what is going on in the PHP framework space and not just a single framework, this is a great post to read. Make sure you leave a comment after reading though. Let Joe know you agree or disagree with his conclusions. (Or just ask him how he pronounces his last name)
