    PHP Frameworks

    Are you using CodeIgniter, CakePHP or another web application framework when developing your PHP applications?

    If yes, why? If no, why not?

    For my day job the developers there use Symfony. I've worked quite a bit with it, deploying all the applications and such, and I find it to be a quality system.

    It's the only one I have experience with, as I'm not a developer myself. It's another one to look into when deciding which one to choose.

    I don't use frameworks because I like to work direct with PHP rather than an interpreted language version (if that is the right phrase).

    It's already a powerful and easy to use language.

    Which way to go? It depends on the level of complexity of a new development I guess. I tend to modify existing scripts, write plugins, or create small standalone apps.

    If you need to create template-driven sites from scratch then I have seen Smarty being mentioned a lot.

    Framework doesn't interpret your code at all. Frameworks handle a lot of the code that you would rewrite for each project.

    They provide a framework in which to work so you can get directly down to writing your application.

    I am not using any yet. I haven't really seen a need for them as I do everything from scratch. I am looking into it though. We just started using MVC in my Web Application class for ASP.NET.

    Dave recently posted that phpLD was moving from Smarty to jQuery.

    I am not trying to be rude but this looks like a thread about PHP frame work and not JavaScript framework
