Web developers are always on the lookout of ways to speed up and simplify coding. From WYSIWYG editors, IDEs, code generators, APIs and frameworks, they’re all here to make our life easier.
Frameworks and libraries offer rapid application development by providing reusable code wrapped in either functions or API. They are designed to support the development of dynamic web sites, web applications and web services. Framework helps a lot in alleviating the overhead associated in developing web application like database access, templating framework, user authentication, etc.
We’ve just launched a PHP Frameworks category on HotScripts that highlights hand-picked resources for the 4 most popular PHP Frameworks: CakePHP, Zend Framework, Symfony, Prado and CodeIgniter. Each category features resources for that particular framework including scripts built out of these frameworks, books, tutorials and other development tools and utilities.
