The PHP Town Hall podcast has posted their latest episode (after a bit of hiatus) giving the low down on PSR-15, the proposed PHP-FIG standard for HTTP middleware.
n all star cast this episode, as Ben and Phil are joined by regular guest Anthony Ferrara - thinker of good ideas and long-time part-time side-line contributor to the PHP-FIG, Woody Gilk - one-speed rider & BDFL of Kohana, and Beau Simensen - author of a bunch of stuff including StackPHP.
Here we’re talking about some awesome stuff the PHP-FIG is working on: PSR-15 (HTTP Middleware). [...] We discuss all this, and the reason PSR-7 (HTTP Message) is not enough for the ecosystem to benefit from shareable middleware. [...] Woody provides a bit of the decision-making process in a very tricky aspect of the FIGs job, which is: should standards be built entirely to match existing implementations, or should standards try to improve on the learnings of the existing implementations to better them all as implementations change to support the standard. It’s all a bit chicken and egg, but a very worthy discussion to have.
