Good Rail framework-like in PHP ?
There have been a lot of buzz around Ruby on Rail these days. But with a Php background I rather not to switch to Ruby but find a framework that have the same philosophy as Rail has. It seems that I’ve found one. Symfony framework looks good and the documentation is excellent. Here is what it claims to do :
Based on the best practices of web development, thoroughly tried on several active websites, symfony aims to speed up the creation and maintenance of web applications, and to replace the repetitive coding tasks by power, control and pleasure.
Symfony provides a lot of features seamlessly integrated together, such as:
- simple templating and helpers
- cache management
- smart URLs
- multilinguism and I18N support
- object model and MVC separation
- Ajax support
- enterprise ready
The best of all is that it come with a 24 days tutorials to build a real world application Askeet. I will blog more on this framework later after testing it more thorougthly. Until then why don’t try it yourself.
