A friend and I were considering embarking on a small quest to begin a start-up. We had an idea that we both liked and saw a market for product. I jokingly mentioned we should use one of my favorite PHP frameworks, CodeIgniter and he quickly said No. I was taken aback by the response and asked why the flat No. I learned it amounted to he was comfortable with the faults of his framework, that being Zend and didnt want to branch out.
Im sure he had other issues with my framework of choice, but it made me wonder. He generally comes off as a person who will try something new out and give it a spin, but he was geninuely against using Codeigniter. Maybe its not the “enterprise solution” he uses. Im further curious because he has grips with having to append every function with Zend, and the lack of documentation. Codeigniter on the other hand has very well documented functions and the naming convention is much improved when compared to Zend.
Im curious what PHP frameworks have you used? Would you try another one of the big frameworks, there are tons of smaller ones with less support and community.
