Karl Katzke's Blog:
PHP Symfony vs. Zend
December 04, 2007 @ 12:41:00

On his blog, Karl Katzke has posted his own comparison of two of the popular PHP frameworks available for developers - Symfony and the Zend Framework.

The Symfony and Zend frameworks are so amazingly different that they almost don't deserve to share the title "framework." [...] Both frameworks are PHP5-native frameworks and won't function in PHP4. Both are heavily object-oriented and make use of inheritance that's only offered in PHP>5. Both use the front controller model. The similarities end there.

He compares them on a few levels:

  • Getting Started
  • Unit Testing
  • Templating
  • Plugins
  • Database Modules

Be sure to check out his conclusion for his personal choice - we won't spoil it here.
