PHP Server Side Scripting Forum

Do you use frameworks? why?
A general discussion

 3:48 pm on Nov 20, 2013 (gmt 0)

There are frameworks for diff languages, I decided to post it under PHP because I've seen many people using them (this is just my personal exposure and perception to the market/groups). What surprises me is none of the developers I know use frameworks due to personal preference but mostly due to company directives.

I know using frameworks can speed up a lot of work and coding using common practices, but I also understand there is a limit on how general those practices can be and become more especific (this in the sense of people telling me "it's easier to replace a developer when we use frameworks", honestly I don't know, I'm curious.

I like building from zero but I also reuse my code. At this point I have lots of procedures, functions, etc. So I can be really fast building stuff, so speed is not exactly a problem. In my experience, fellow developers haven't been so fast (to compete and easily win) and 95% of them built stuff for the company and never for themselves, I mean not a single project on their own.

I would like to hear opinions on why do you use frameworks. I had a job offer recently and I can do all the stuff they need really fast but they want developers to stick to X framework. I'm more curious since then. Many times it seems to me like "learning a language is stage 1" and there you go but with frameworks is like "ok know you have to learn this framework" and seems extra work.

Just curious, do you use frameworks? why? (not talking about Javascript but PHP, Perl, etc).

One more thing... over the years here at WebmasterWorld I received amazingly good advice from developers using pure code, not frameworks. There were some threads with discussions on "that doesn't work" and honestly there were a lot of obstacles but non-framework-developers were actively seeing answers and advicing on new methods, this increased my interest on staying away from FW.
