Liip Blog:
Silex - A Grand Micro Framework for PHP
May 09, 2011 @ 09:13:33

In a new post to the Liip blog Benoît Pointet talks about his experience with Silex, the micro-framework from Fabien Potencier and the Symfony crowd.

In a recent project, my team needed a micro backend for a small educational simulation game which was mostly client-side code. [...] There were so little backend tasks involved that the primary discussion lead to a 'no framework' approach. But after a great presentation by Igor Wiedler at Liip Zurich, we decided to use the Silex PHP micro-framework for our minimal backend needs.

His application ended up being 200 lines of code (with commenting and space) and made use of Doctrine and templating extensions for the framework.

It was fun, fast and allowed us to concentrate on the real challenges of the project.

For more information on Silex, see silex-project.org.
