PHP Frameworks in the future?

Postby xzjia » Wed Feb 03, 2010 4:40 pm

Just wondering, since utilizing PHP frameworks (such as Codeigniter, Cake... etc) could mean greatly reduced development time due to focus on the actual feature instead of core functionality/bugs.

It also means being able to ride off on other large(r) communities and being able to take advantage of their expertise etc. Maybe a possibility for PivotX 3?

I have no objections to using frameworks in general, but it would require a complete rewrite (which is likely to introduce a bunch of bugs). In addition the bugs we have is mostly related to the logic in PivotX (which a framework won't make an easier to handle). We do already use many components from other projects so we do indeed benefit from the work of others. (Example: PivotX switched to Smarty as the template language and dropped the home-grown stuff.)

So, speaking for myself only, I don't see a new version of PivotX using some framework. However, if someone sits down and does the work, we will of course evaluate it.
