Anthony Ferrara's Blog:
The MicroPHP Fallacy
January 05, 2012 @ 09:02:16

Anthony Ferrara has posted his own response to the recently posted MicroPHP Manifesto (from Ed Finkler that has caused quite a stir in the PHP community). In the post, Anthony mentions some of the points he both agrees and disagrees with about the manifesto.

I came across a rather interesting post yesterday entitled The MicroPHP Manifesto. The author made clever use of a very interesting analogy (drum players) to try to prove his point that less is more. The article makes a very interesting read, and I would suggest that everyone reads it. Go ahead. I'll wait. With that said, I have to disagree with the article rather vehemently. I think the message is somewhat right, but for all the wrong reasons.

One of his main points is that he believes in the "right tool for the right job" mentality and suggests that, like the manifesto says, small things are good for some jobs. In other places, though, a full-stack framework (or component-based one) is the right fit. He finishes off the post by going through the manifesto points themselves and adding commentary with his thoughts on each.
