Thread: PHP Frameworks

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    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 use Smarty.

  4. #4
    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.

  5. #5
    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.

    That would be a good move. Smarty was very difficult to work with when I had a phpLD directory. It was the only real negative aspect of phpLD, IMHO.

    Yes, we took one step away from Smarty, but did not completely remove it. We moved from Smarty validation to Jquery validation. Potentially, we could completely move away from Smarty, but there are plenty of good things to say about smarty too, and lots of scripts use it. But there are areas where Jquery is really kicking but now, and validation is one of them.

    If I were going to go with a framework (or change), I think Zend would be high on my list

    These guys pretty much invented what we know today as PHP, and they have some of the best in the industry. I visited their office here in Silicon Valley, and it was kind of cool to see some of the people that have made so much possible to everyone.

    I go by that area sometimes. I'll have to take a picture of their office sometime.
