Why aren't frameworks discussed more?

Posted 24 March 2018 - 06:45 AM

Most languages have frameworks, and PHP is no exception, but in the php forum almost all questions are "straight php" probably in part because most questions are from beginners, but does that explain it completely? Aren't most of us using frameworks?

*shrug* The closest I get to a framework is dealing with wordpress and drupal. There never seemed to be a large urgency for frameworks in php unlike, say, the nearly breakneck speed of the javascript churn.

I wouldn't count drupal, or especially wordpress, as being close to a framework. ;) Do you write full php apps in php or are you using it to modify web pages?

mostly use php to shovel data back and forth. Any fancy shenanigans are kept in basic JS.

Yeah, probably the lowest php peasant in jon's eyes. :)

I'd guess only those that need the development speed-up. For most beginners I assume that getting into a framework is much more complicated (it requires reading docs - shudder) than throwing together some spaghetti code (which is very easy to do).

I'm sure that's it. Our major application uses a framework (for any recent code, anyway), but whenever I'm stuck and ask a question it seems like I always figure out the answer in the process of asking the question, so that's why I don't post many questions.

I have used several, but their docs {or the reference books I buy] tend to answer any questions I have had.
