I’ve always shy’d away from MVC I personally don’t like using other developer codes definitely when i don’t know what exactly is going on through the 50,000+ lines of code.
Since 2009 I’ve tried numerous MVC Frameworks and always, steered back to my style, which was pretty efficient it was basically a Model / View style.
So finally I’m like let me just develop my own MVC structure I took a week to myself and studied MVC pattern development. Bumped into the problem i always bumped into which is, URL flexibility, file structure flexibility and just flexibility in general like using classes out side the MVC framework. So i decided to take my style and MVC style mix it up a bit. I’m loving the way this is coming together.
In short… I still personally think MVC is an over kill. I still don’t see the point in creating a Controller (Index) then Create a Model (Index) and the a View (Index) i still see it as redundant effort. The standard URL structure with all the Frameworks (Controller->Method->Param 1 , Param 2, Param 3, Param 4) limits any robust application. Which forces a work around for a URL Router.
Other thing i didn’t like about MVC is silly helpers like Create_Link(‘#’, ‘_target’, ‘Name Of Link’); Its easier to me just to type <a href=“#”> Name Of Link</a>
I still don’t understand why people download CodeIgniter, Zend, Yii… The download alone is over 10mb+ in just straight useless code, in which about 10% is used on a standard application. Before you even start getting a site together the performance is dead.
I think i feel better.
