This year I’ve continued to try different PHP frameworks. The ones I’ve tried are well written and have a fantastic community. I can see how some people may need to rely on a framework that does everything, but I like having control. And I prefer to add things instead of removing them.

Silex has been enjoyable to use while building web applications. I have a skeleton repo that has everything I need. This repo has webpack for SCSS, JS, and injecting assets into HTML. The folder structure is organized and easy to understand. The organized code is easier to maintain and debug.
