Igor Wiedler:
How heavy is Silex?
September 03, 2013 @ 13:17:35

Igor Wiedler has shared some of his thoughts on his site today about the "heaviness" of things that call themselves "microframeworks" and why it may not be about the amount of code involved at all.

Quite often silex has been described as heavy or bloated. It's time to put this myth to rest. [...] Micro-framework What an excellent buzzword! Let's face it, this is an overloaded and mostly nebulous term. I don't think it's possible to clearly define what it means. [...] But the real answer lies in what silex doesn't do.

He suggests that the "micro" in "microframework" is more about it providing a limited amount of features (bare-bones) versus a more full-featured, possibly full stack framework. He talks about the dependencies that Silex currently has and provides some statistics about it and these packages it depends on. He also briefly mentions the minimal interface the framework provides, citing the few components you'll probably touch in your work with it.

Rob Allen:
Thoughts on module directory structure
January 04, 2013 @ 09:09:55

Rob Allen, in his Zend Framework 2 development, has come up with a list of suggestions about the use of modules in your applications, mainly relating to the structure of the files inside of them.

I've been working on a Zend Framework 2 module within a larger project that doesn't have that many PHP class files. Specifically, it has a controller, a mapper, an entity, a service and a form. As a result, the traditional Zend Framework 2 directory structure for the Account module looks [overly complicated]. That's a lot of directories for not many files! As a result, I decided to flatten it to [something simpler].

He includes both the "before" and "after" directory structures and continues on with two more suggestions - the removal of the top level "Account" folder inside of "src/" and, finally, removing "src/" all together with a slight modification to the autoloading. With a simpler module, though, something like this might make it easier to maintain and "follow" later down the road.

PHPKitchen:
Seagull 0.6.0 Released
August 23, 2006 @ 07:27:33

On PHPKitchen, there's a new note about the release of the latest stable version of the popular Seagull Framework, version 0.6.0.

After 3 release candidates stable version 0.6.0 of the Seagull framework was released last week, download it here. Blame it on the heat wave this summer in the UK, we broke our "1 release per month" mantra for the first time in 3 years, but I think the results were worth waiting for.

There's information included about how to install (minimal and developer versions) as well as some of the improvements made, including:

  • automated module installation for admin users, and improvements to the module generator wizard
  • mproved wizard functionality based on PEAR's HTML_QuickForm_Controller (Malaney J. Hill)
  • nice CAPTCHA component (Steven Stremciuc)

You can get complete information on the framework on its site and grab the download here.
