  • GitHub repo Laravel 5

    A PHP framework for web artisans.

    Project mention: A comprehensive guide on how to design future-proof controllers: Part 1 | | 2022-01-13

    In the next article, Part 2. We will be refactoring a controller function with a specific focus on the Request validation concern.

    Project mention: When Symfony Http Kernel is a Too Big Hammer to Use | | 2022-01-03

    Btw there was an attempt to decouple things some time ago, but it was rejected:

  • GitHub repo october

    Self-hosted CMS platform based on the Laravel PHP Framework.

    Project mention: Why WordPress is an utter load of crap to build a serious business website with | | 2021-11-23

    I've used OctoberCMS[1] for a smaller project, and this looks similar on first glance. (Might just be the Lavarel underpinnings.)

    What I really like about October is the ability to quickly spin up small CRUD database functionality (index + detail pages and simple backend updates for "custom" objects like staff members, white papers, etc.) using their Builder plugin. Any idea if Statamic offers something similar without diving into custom code?

    However, October seems to be a little stagnant: you search, and most of the forum discussions are from 2016, and many plugins are no longer maintained well.

    Project mention: Happy 10th Birthday Phalcon! | | 2022-01-12

  • GitHub repo framework

    :gem: Go! AOP PHP - modern aspect-oriented framework for the new level of software development (by goaop)

  • GitHub repo Opulence

    Project mention: Exotic/unknown frameworks? | | 2021-05-28

    Depends on your definition of "unknown", but some of the less mainstream frameworks that I've used or checked out are Spiral, Opulence and Aphiria. There are many others, but these are actually good and well designed.

  • GitHub repo Concrete 5 CMS

    Official repository for concrete5 development

    Project mention: Ask HN: What is the best UI builder that you have ever used? | | 2021-03-21 was way ahead at least when I tried it years ago.

    It allowed for in-place editing and as a dev I could easily add more custom elements/blocks to be dropped and configured.

  • GitHub repo Ubiquity

    Ubiquity framework

    Project mention: | 2021-02-08

    Normally I just click on Fortune Cookies, since I think that is the most representative of a typical Web Workload.

    And then Click on Filter, Full Stack Framework, And Full ORM only. Again, most people will be using some sort of Web Framework with Full ORM.

    I am surprised the top results is from PHP. For many years it has always been Java. And it is from a framework called ubiquity [1] which I have never heard of it before.

    There is Crystal and Lucky [2]. Which is exciting because they are getting very close to 1.0

    Ruby Rails... is still at the bottom of the pack.
