H3rald.com:
Rails-inspired PHP frameworks
May 05, 2006 @ 07:21:19

The H3rald site has posted a new article that looks at a collection of PHP frameworks that have been inspired by Rails' example.

There are various articles online examining many PHP frameworks, providing short reviews or comparative charts, but I could not find yet an article examining the so called "Rails-inspired frameworks" anywhere on the web, so I decided to write my own…

I'm talking about those PHP frameworks who give at least part of their success to Ruby on Rails2, but don't call them clones or ports as some of their creators may get offended.

He comments on how Rails' entrance into the world of the web was a "shocking" experience and how, as soon as developers saw the benefits of an easy to use "semi-sentient" web development framework, they jumped on board - including several PHP developers out there. To illustrate the point, he gives six PHP frameworks up as examples:

Under each example, there's a list of the license, size, databases supported, a tutorial, and a description of the framework (including the pros and cons of using it). He also includes a few comments on each with his personal opinions and a few extra facts thrown in.
