Let the complete newbies use CodeIgniter.
So that those of us who appreciate that Yii is a non-bloated PHP Framework can enjoy it.
There are already addons for both of these ‘competing’ frameworks…
All I ask of Yii is this:
Semantic CSS - CSS3 with fallback for older browsers (see next point)
Full HTML5 support with Modernizr as fallback.
Extensions were made to ‘extend’ Yii.
And that’s the way I think it should be.
Feel free to create an Easy-Yii bundle.
I think it sounds like a great idea.
But why you’d want this come bundled with the framework is beyond me.
I started this discussion I think, with my request to replace Blueprint with something more modern.
We already have well-maintained extension for both Bootstrap and Foundation - so we have it: right now.
Should it become bundled with Yii?
Yii is like a Sushi knife: elegant tool in the right hands.
It’s not a Swiss Army Knife - and I hope that it never becomes one.
If it does, there’s enough PHP frameworks out there to shake a stick at - muhaha.
