    Lightbulb Zend Framework

    Hello,
    I have just recently stumbled along Zend Framework I want to know if anyone uses it and would you consider using it instead of pear?


    Thanks,
    Yaffle

    Hi Yaffle,

    I'm developing an application using the new ZF and it has been working out great so far. Here are some of the pros and cons;

    Pros:
    * very flexible, you can continue to use the pear modules you need and very easy to integrate 3rd party apps. ( I integrated smarty as my template engine)
    * very active development, huge list of contributors.
    * provides MVC architecture
    * many useful modules are included with the framework.
    * easy upgrades. ( upgraded twice so far and they were both very smooth)
    * well documented code, many tutorials available.

    cons:
    * there is a lot of active development going on so you should be ready to tweak your code every so often.
    * some of the key features are still under development (Zend_Form)

    I'm probably missing some important points here but these are the first things come to my mind.

    hope this helps,
