Making PHP Frameworks Work Better Together
Interoperability is defined as “the degree to which two products, programs, etc. can be used together.” Hence, the PHP Framework Interoperability Group is focused on making it easier for PHP frameworks to work better together. The FIG aims to provide a platform for project representatives to “talk about the commonalities between our projects and find ways we can work together.”
Benni Mack will represent TYPO3 alongside members from a range of projects, such as Composer, ezPublish, Magento, Pimcore, and more. Because these recommendations are shared among diverse projects, it gives the participants a chance to find the common ground between them, and forge a shared vision for a more interoperable future.
Standards Make TYPO3 Easier for New Developers
TYPO3 has already been adopting PSRs that make it easier to write interoperable code. In turn, adopting these widely used standards lower the threshold for developers who would like to learn TYPO3. In this article on typo3.com, about Benni Mack’s involvement in PHP-FIG, you can see which PSRs were adopted in which versions of TYPO3.
With continued PSR adoption, TYPO3 becomes more flexible and easier to integrate with other systems.
