So, after the long debate about using ANY sort of external packaged
library besides my own hacked scripts, I decided to dig through the
source code of ZF and peek around. I was pretty impressed. It reminded
me a whole heap of college, specifically with Java and the zillions of
classes I would build with eclipse :)
Here's what I liked :
1/ Singleton patterns - Neat. I can see how this is quite resourceful.
2/ Definitely one of the best MVC Implementations I've seen...
3/ Double - confirmed why I love Zend Studio so much,
I really would like to use this package - and I could definitely see
it's benefits at work if we had it amongst a memcache server, but for
small jobs - there's just a whole other side of me thats aching
Re: I just don't have a great feeling about diving into ZF
Including ZF with your project is fairly non-intrusive, as you can
include() what you need and not what you don't.
Projects do tend to grow over time, and it would be better to just
include the framework for when you need it rather than try to reinvent
the wheel for those "few times" when it might come in handy.
