I have been using an approx ~1000 line framework i've written, and for years haven't found a good reason to switch to anything else, every time i've looked.
There is always a lot to learn, which doesn't match up to the base language i've been working on for a decade. The syntax is always longer. There's always a requirement for more layers of abstraction than i'd like to deal with, for performance reasons and code comprehensibility reasons.
I've been trying to understand why frameworks are so great for many years. I'm convinced that they are just a fancy way to get everyone to code roughly the same in a language that gives you an ungodly amount of freedom.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
