I have been aware of Silex for a while as a nice microframework based on Symfony2, and have looked into it a couple of times to see if it would be useful for a project. So far though, the projects I was working on seemed to need more than just Silex, so I picked Symfony2 instead. This morning, I decided to dig into Silex a bit more with a real-world project I still wanted to develop myself: A URL shortener.
