Back to blogging and a headache


Back to blogging and a headache

It's a hard thing this day in age to decide what is best to do in terms of technology and how to use it for the right reasons. I have just finished a small nice little micro framework and want to use it everywhere, but the issue here is to achieve what I want to do with it and create the functions the site requires the development time is huge. With Laravel, Zend and Symforny all out there and ready to rock and roll out the box has the time come for new services or new projects to sit in a GitHub repo somewhere laying dormant? To sit beneath 3 giants of the world and to never see the light of day.

It's a headache that is a nice to have but also one that must be thought through very carefully. Ok! so all three have wonderful Auth systems and built in database migrations with more features than you really need and more code than what the project requires, but its a quicker development than having a framework that does exactly what you need. To have a project only consist of what you want is surely what we need in the world? To have a application do what you want and no more? Or are we in a world of having more than we need just in case?

Its something I'm pondering over the coming days as I try and to make the play to either build my way or grab a framework and go nuts with all the features! But its certainly tempting to just fire up Laravel and have the build done in less time. With no real deadlines and more importantly being the client surely its better to just build my way?
