I am looking into making a browser based strategy game as a personal project and have been looking into frameworks to make my life easier.
I considered Symfony, as it seems the most flexable of all the PHP ones (especially with its large range of databases supported), but it relies heavily in CLI to build its ORM and generally a lot more compex to work with than Silvstripe/Sapphire.
I ae mulled it over, an I am fairly certain Sapphire has all the capabilities I would need for such a project. The majority of the work will be done via forms storing info into the database, then outputting that data in a Rich UI. What does everyone else think?
Also, how difficult is it to separate Sapphire from the CMS? Can I just remove the CMS folder and rebuild the database (or better still, start a new project without it)? I know there was a topic on this a while ago, but I cant seem to find it.
