I started working on a small declarative PHP framework inspired by SwiftUI using some Laravel components. Wondering how much interest people might have in it.

    Ditch the config.php please and replace it with either an env file or listen for global environment variables

    Or a config.yaml, using symfomy's config thing

    Also, is this framework intended for 5.6 as well? If it is not then I'd strongly suggest using typehints. Also I believe it's good practice to have docblocks above functions

    @alexbrooklyn why? Can you explain the benefit? The environments need their own config files regardless.

    Also, where are your tests? ;)

    @kejojedi because that's not gonna cut it for modern architectures

    If I want to use environment variables now, I have to write actual code to fetch and validate configuration from the environment and do it myself. If I run this inside a k8s cluster, I need to manually mount a PHP file with config, which is insane if I don't speak php.

    My suggestion would be to either use a json file on the system or fetch env vars dynamically

    Also, please don't see my words as aggresive attacks on your framework it's look pretty cool and I see a few areas of improvement ;)

    @alexbrooklyn why would you use a php framework if you don't speak php...
  • 1
    Think beyond development, think of the people maintaining the cluster and having to configure it

    @alexbrooklyn no offense taken

    I like the idea behind it. Are there any plans for OOP (like inheritage)? Especially the controllers could Profit from that in my opinion

    @Wack Agreed, and perhaps some php-cs-fixer runs and php linting

    And please for the love of god test your own code, an untested framework is equal to a broken framework imo

    @Wack This is a procedural framework. There are plenty of OOP MVC frameworks already.

    @alexbrooklyn This is just a proof of concept. Unit tests will come later. I've also coded it so that it plays nicely with PHPStorm. You get full autocompletion already.

    @kejojedi any reason for that? Like what's the advantage?
