Since i gave up working with Symfony 1.4, i was searching for a new framework. Because i couldn’t find one that i like, i ended up in developing a small framework by myself. Searching for some solutions related to ORM and ODM, i read some posts related to Phalcon.
Honestly, in a few minutes, i felt in love with this framework. Mainly because of the architecture (very similar with what i developed for myself) and because it is written in C, and it comes as a php extension.
The learning curve should be very fast for any developer that has the basic knowledge about MVC pattern and is familiar with namespaces. Also, the documentation is awesome + that there are a tons of examples on Github.
I am testing it under Ubuntu, Nginx + PHP-FPM – it is incredibly fast. Anyway, there are a lot of improvements that has to be made, but they are moving fast.
All in all, i’m lovin it !
