Liip Blog: Silex - A Grand Micro Framework for PHP
Note: This article was originally published at PHPDeveloper on 9 May 2011.
In a new post to the Liip blog Benoît Pointet talks about his experience with Silex, the micro-framework from Fabien Potencier and the Symfony crowd.
In a recent project, my team needed a micro backend for a small educational simulation game which was mostly client-side code. [...] There were so little backend tasks involved that the primary discussion lead to a 'no framework' approach. But after a great presentation by Igor Wiedler at Liip Zurich, we decided to use the Silex PHP micro-framework for our minimal backend needs.
It was fun, fast and allowed us to concentrate on the real challenges of the project.
