I had to create a cli tool that reads excels file and push each row data to a web service.
It has to be called once a day using linux crontab.
Usually I create such software (middleware ?) from the scratch in PHP that is already present in the server.
I got many of these custom client applications and I would like to create a more structured application using a framework.
I tried Symfony console and it works, but I'm not happy.
I have 12 Mb of php scripts in vendor folder and 50 Kb of my code: an elephant that produce a mouse.
Moreover the server has php 7.0 so I have to use an old version on the framework (3.4).
When I will upgrade the server (next spring I suppose) I have fear to upgrade the framework to a more recent version (5.1) with a completely different logic.
What shall I do?
Any suggestion for a lightweight framework for a php cli command?
Thank you for your patience.
