Things to like about Symfony so far

June 28 2009 : posted under php symfony frameworks mvc

A few days into learning Symfony and so far I’m keen on

  • configuration check to start with
  • good MVC separation
  • ability to generate initial MVC components from a database definition
  • form validation to match database constraints
  • wrapping various HTTP functions and globals in a request and response object
  • separate dev and prod environments
  • ajax integration - like defining a div as draggable in PHP
  • explicit support for initial and test data

Things not to like

  • well there are quite a lot of files
