    Anyone use it? What do you think? Thinking about using it for a frame work, but not sure yet. I know I was recommended Smarty a while back as well. What do you guys use? Right now, I do everything from scratch.

    I like Cake... for the most part. A LOT of controllers already exist and are ...well... a piece of cake to use.

    I'm not a fan of the whole "automagic" concept. I use Codeigniter. Extremely lightweight and quick.

    As far as templating engines, I use both Smarty and PHP.

    I think I want to learn more about Smarty. I'd like to see how a Smarty website is implemented. I'll try searching for sample sites that I could possibly take a look at it and get the feel for how it works.

    Haven't tried either, LightVC looks a bit promising though. Maybe I'll give it a try for a future project. CI is extremely simple. Although it's well documented, I'm not spending an aggressive amount of time reading documentation, like I have with Zend.

    Didn't know LightVC had no models. :o I could gather that from the name though now :rofl:. Much like CoughPHP, CI models are optional, but you can still build your own.

    And I agree with your viewpoints on Zend. Pretty solid, but when I work with it, I spend most of my time all up in documentation. I like CI because I can focus on code.

    Since you like lightweight frameworks, you should check out CI. You might like it, and an additional plus is that it's well documented.

    I bought the book for CI, does a good job explaining. Though like most programming books I find it a slow read. :o
