There are many frameworks out there that help to speed up web development. However, many frameworks has grown too complex and fat because there are too many unused classes and functions in it.
Heres a good write-up on the comparison between various PHP framework, and the memory that they used.
Came across this particular framework, called Fat-Free Framework.
It is interesting because its
- designed ground up for PHP5.3,
- in-built ORM DB support, (i.e. SQL)
- in-built NoSQL support, (i.e. MongoDB)
- super small footprint,
Will do a write-up again after hands-on with this new framework.
