TAG | framework
As some of you know, I have long been a fan of the Zend framework ever since working with it on the Industries for the Blind website for a number of years. Recently I decided to look at some of the other frameworks out there in an effort to expand my knowledge and find something more lightweight. After looking at frameworks such as CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Kohanna, Symphony, and Yii, I elected to try out the Yii Framework. The main reasons for this were three-fold. First, Yii seems to be fairly lightweight. Second, it natively runs on PHP5. Third, and probably the biggest draw is the integration with jQuery… jQuery has become one of my favorite software tools over the past six months and I was thrilled to find a framework that natively supported it. Zend’s decision to go with Dojo as their main framework was one of the things that I dislike about Zend.
