The PHP ecosystem is full of frameworks: Symfony, Laravel, Yii, Zend, Phalcon, and so many, many, many more... All of them built by professionals and supported by big communities. So why on earth would a junior developer, who has just started his first job, try his hand in building yet another one?
Well, here’s why:
A framework doesn’t have to be overly complex! Micrus provides you with a quick, easy and comfortable way of creating neatly structured, modular MVC websites, which can be easily extended and configured.
Our goal is to keep the framework as simple as possible, while offering all the most important features.
Forms are complicated. There are many things you must take into consideration: binding an existing object (if any) to each sparate field of the form, validating them after user has submited the form, if invalid redisplaying it with POST data bound and with validation errors, binding the data back to an object...
Avris Forms add an abstraction layer that handles all of that. You just need to define the list of fields you need and their cofiguration options. You’ll get an object that will handle everything for you. Just handle it in the controller and display it in the view.
Having 100% of LOC covered by unit tests certainly feels like a great achievement. But beware – that doesn’t necessarily mean your code is perfectly covered. Lines of code coverage is a really nice indicator of your app’s stability, but is can also hide some risks.
