The International PHP Magazine site has posted the results of their poll (still taking votes, by the way) about what some of the prerequisited of a good framework should be.
The International PHP Magazine conducted a poll last week, asking for your opinion on the 'Pre-requisites of a good framework'. The options provided include:
- Strong separation of data
- Web 2.0 support and preferably libraries built in
- Strong naming conventions and smart English recognition
- Robustness (ability to handle large volumes of traffic and data)
- Rapid development features (scaffolding etc.)
- A great IDE (preferably Eclipse)
The results so far show that two options are neck and neck for users - the correct/strong seperation of data and the framework's robustness for dealing with the loads. Pulling in close behind them is the need for rapid development, making it quick and easy to use.
