Jim Plush's Blog:
Another PHP Framework that falls flat - PHP on Trax
February 07, 2006 @ 15:10:12

Jim Plush, in his latest blog entry, looks at one of the PHP frameworks offered out on the web, PHP on Trax, and why it falls flat.

A rails alternative in PHP? Sounds great, I dont have to spend my weekend learning Ruby. That's what I hoped when I came across PHP on Trax which dubs itself as a Rails alternative for PHP. At first glimpse of the code they do a nice job implementing a dynamic active record setup to quickly generate the most commonly needed funtionality.

Where this framework really falls flat is documentation, samples, and support.

He doesn't give any samples of how the framework is used (code), but he does describe the frustration he felt working on an application without the proper documentation and even quotes David Heinemeir on the same subject.

You want a framework to cut your development time, not have you digging through source code to try and find errors and documentation. PHP Trax has potential, yet falls flat for lack of documenation, support, and/or general community interest.

Utah PHP Users Group:
Model-view-controller frameworks
January 23, 2006 @ 07:16:15

In this post from the Utah PHP Users Group Site today, they talk about their meeting just past (January 2006) and what was presented.

For January's presentation, Richard K. Miller presented on model-view-controller (MVC) frameworks. MVC framework Ruby on Rails has received a lot of attention in the past year for making web app development easier and more enjoyable. Several similar frameworks are available for PHP. Special guest John Peterson of MyTechSupport.com, the creators of a PHP framework called PHP on Trax also presented. PHP on Trax was used to rapidly develop KatrinaHousing.org, a highly trafficked website that helped hurricane victims find housing.

In the comments of the post, there's also a link to both presentations of the night - MVC frameworks for PHP and PHP on Trax...
