Volker Dusch:
A silex love story - 'Embedded' PHP
December 05, 2012 @ 12:03:17

In this new post to his site Volker Dusch talks about some of his first experiences with the Silex microframework (from the folks behind Symfony) and the evolution his code went through in its first few versions.

A couple of weeks ago Igor wrote a fantastic blog post about "Scaling a Silex code base" which made me remember a story I wanted to share about how I fell in love with Silex. This blog post aims to tell that story. If you never heard of Silex is let me paste the blurp from the silex home page for you: "Silex is a PHP microframework for PHP 5.3. It is built on the shoulders of Symfony2 and Pimple and also inspired by Sinatra."

He talks about some of his "first steps" with the framework and their need for a smaller system that could run embedded on a local machine. He talks about how Silex let him rapidly prototype and develop the application with only what was needed. He shows the evolution of his route handling from simple closures to method calls on objects out to using providers.
