PHP Framework Face-Off

Filed under: Software Development — Tags: , , , — Greg Larkin @ 3:22 pm

Hello everyone,

I recently created a FreeBSD port for each of the following PHP frameworks:

I originally started with the Zend Framework port a while back, thinking I would use it to rebuild the web site. Since I want all software on the FreeBSD servers to be installed and upgraded using the ports system, I had to build the ZF port first. The only problem with building a port is that it doesn’t always require you to learn the ins and outs of actually using the software that you are porting.

The web site rebuilding project is still in the planning phases, and now that I’ve created ports for some additional PHP frameworks, I thought it might be useful to put together a simple web site using each one. I’ve read a lot of comments about each one, the strong points and weaknesses, but I think a hands-on experiment with each one will help a lot to narrow down the final choice.

A slightly more advanced “Hello, world.” program than the one in my original dog-eared copy of K&R ought to make the final choice easy to make. I’ll post progress here, and send any comments you have along the way.
