Silex Framework

Silex is a PHP micro framework that is developed on the arms of Symfony and Pimple and also inspired by Sinatra. The Http Kernel feature make the apps more secure with the minimal effort. This is really a great micro-framework for writing small applications with only a few pages or like middleware APIs. The main benefits are that it is based on the Symfony framework which is full of the quality framework and decoupled in multiple components that you can re-use independently on your applications.

There is also a lot of Silex built-in providers that allows to use these components into Silex such as Twig, Asset management, Doctrine, Form, Translation, and much more. Finally, in the case of a micro-application that only do one single job, you can write your Silex application in only one PHP file.

The microframework provides the guts for building simple single-file apps. Silex aims to be:

  • Concise: Silex exposes an intuitive and concise API that is fun to use
  • Extensible: Silex has an extension system based on the Pimple micro service-container that makes it even easier to tie in third-party libraries
  • Testable: Silex uses Symfony's HttpKernel which abstracts request and response. This makes it very easy to test apps and the framework itself. It also respects the HTTP specification and encourages its proper use
  • Silex development process is built on Symfony 2 components, that’s why a developer can create an alternative interface for components. Both frameworks have the same basis, so they interact easily
  • Basically, Silex is a controller framework. In other words, though Silex has a certain structure, templates, models, and display are handled by other libraries
  • Due to the fact, that controllers should not contain business logic if you will take out the code and leave light controllers, the number of functions will be the only factor that limits the size of your project

If you don’t want to have a high affinity for class hierarchy, which doesn’t allow you to change template engine easily, Silex will work fine in the case of writing an application from the start.
