Matthew Weier O'Phinney's Blog:
Simple Interfaces and Micro MVCs
December 23, 2010 @ 09:29:07

In a new post to his blog today Matthew Weier O'Phinney takes a look at micro MVC frameworks and how, with just a bit of lightweight code and pieces of the Zend Framework, creating one is dead simple.

My job is great: I get to play with technology and code most days. My job is also hard: how does one balance both functionality and usability in programming interfaces? [...] One interface I've been toying with is inspired by two very different sources. The first is PHP's own SoapServer API (which we use already in our various server components); the other was a discussion I had with Fabien Potencier (of Symfony fame) a couple years ago, where he said the goal of Symfony 2 would be "to transform a request into a response."

The result is a simple Dispatachable interface that acts as the lowest level to build the whole MVC on top of. He illustrates with a micro MVC example that uses the Dispatchable interface to create a Dispatcher class to handle the incoming requests and attach various endpoints for handling. An example of it in use is also included.
