PHPClasses.org:
4 Reasons Why All PHP Frameworks Suck?
February 05, 2014 @ 10:53:28

On the PHPClasses.org site today there's a new blog post with four reasons "why all PHP frameworks suck" based on some recent comments from PHP's creator Rasmus Lerdorf.

Rasmus Lerdorf, the PHP creator, was invited to give a talk in PHP Frameworks Day conference. He talked mostly about the latest PHP developments, but for me the most interesting part was the question and answers section. Among other things, somebody asked Rasmus about his opinion on the PHP frameworks. That was as straight question about his opinion, so Rasmus gave a straight answer (near 31m 47s): "They (PHP frameworks) All suck!"

Some follow up was given to his comment with the four main points:

  • Frameworks Execute The Same Code Repeatedly Without Need
  • Frameworks Require Too Many Interdependent Classes
  • [They provide] Needlessly Complicated Solutions
  • Duplicating the Web Server Functionality

A summary is provided for each of these comments and some of the other questions Rasmus answered are also in the post including the dropping of APC over Zend Opcode, compiling PHP to binary and unicode. The post also includes the embedded video of Rasmus' full talk.
