Reddit.com:
Any ideas on what "MVC agnostic" PHP code is?
February 06, 2014 @ 10:43:59

On Reddit.com there's a recent post that asks for a bit of clarification about the term "MVC agnostic" as said by a potential employer:

A potential employer wanted to see some of my code before an interview. They originally asked for MVC or OO PHP that I'd written in the last 30 days - fair enough. [...] They've come back to me (via the recruitment agent) asking for some "MVC agnostic code" as no one on staff has worked with codeignitor before. Any ideas what they mean by this as I'm slightly stumped.

Most of the responses to the post suggest something that's becoming more and more of a trend in PHP development lately - framework agnostic development. Basically, this is creating functionality (usually in packages) that can be dropped into any application and used independently.

Other comments suggest other possible definitions like:

  • "This is the first time that I have heard someone mention "MVC agnostic" and on the face of it I would question their own understanding of the phrase."
  • "Yeah, the key bit in your question there was 'via a recruitment agency'. Half of the time, they haven't got a clue about the industry and so jargon gets tossed about something awful."
  • "I think it's more accurate to say that what they want to know is that you actually know PHP, and not merely a set of tools on top of PHP that make you productive in the way you prefer."

Stuart Herbert's Blog:
Introducing phix
March 21, 2011 @ 08:24:05

In a new post to his blog Stuart Herbert has introduced phix, a packaging tools that can be used to manage and install different components in a framework-agnostic sort of way.

phix is a small command-line tool for PHP applications. I created it to fix (pun intended) the problem of how to easily automate the tasks involved in creating and (especially) maintaining components. These tasks aren't built into phix; they are commands that ship with the phix distribution. You can create your own commands to run inside phix too, and it's easy to do so

The phix tool (easily installed from PEAR) lets you either use built-in commands or custom ones to manage libraries with a few different kinds of commands - current status, initialize a library, upgrade a library and manage the full web application. As of the time of this post, the current version is phix-0.10.4.
