I really don’t like the !important syntax.
Logically weird and I don’t like such stupid productive thinking stoppers in my mind.
Was the first author and the collegues in the CSS1 consortium accepting it from spain because in their languages they use inverted “!”-sign in front of sentences like “!blabla blabla!” and in questions “?blabla blabla?” the inverted question character?
Further this syntax is redundant:
! means in sentences imporant.
important means -well- imporant. ;-)
So it is “important important”.
As a programmer i wasn't quite interested in frameworks. I belive i can write better code from scratch. But in some point of my life i was forced to use framework. At that time also i was thinking about building my own framework. The very first attempt of learning was YII (Yes It Is) Framework. And that was a wrong decision. Because it wasn't a good framework to begin with. So i was working on my own framework called ECO (Easy Coding) Framework. It was a pretty simple MVC Framework. Later i think about code generators and add a feature to create models,views and controllers automatically. But i wasn't happy enough so that i discontinue the future development.
SInce many companies want employees with framework knowledge i wasn't really know any framework other than my own ECO framework. And i knew that they will ask me "Do you think it is possible to train our existing employees to work with your ECO Framework". So i decided to learn a framework. And I choose codeigniter. I believe that was one of the wise decisions i have made.
Learning codeigniter was pretty simple task because of its simplicity. It was such a simple framework so that even a beginner in programming could even understand it. It came with a nice and clean documentation so that no external training was actually required. And i become experienced in the framework with in 1 month. Later i have done projects in codeigniter and find it too easy and faster than write from the scratch. So i begin to love frameworks. But still i spend time on learning their core code modules and try to change the framework to implement my own new features. Also developed few libraries for codeigniter.
Few months before i was really thinking about learning a new framework because i realise that codeigniter has a boundary of its technologies and there wasn't much updations. Last few months they are not providing any updations or features. So i made such a decision to switch to a new one. So i refere sites and found that Laravel is the framework which has the large number of users all over the world. By start learning i was in a mood of promotion to a higher standard. Laravel is simply awesome and great with its overall features. Purely object oriented , secure , simple framework with excellent blade templating engine , Generators , migrations and many more. And its updating frequently. So i'm start loving it. Still i do projects in codegnator Because it was the stepping stone which will really made me loving frameworks. So i always prefer
Step 1 : codeigniter
Step 2 : Laravel
