Wikka as a Rapid Development Framework


Background

While researching various PHP frameworks, such as CakePHP and CodeIgniter, I couldn't help but think about something I've mentioned here before: Why couldn't Wikka be used as a rapid development framework as well?

Both Cake and CodeIgniter use an MVC (model-view-controller) framework. For the most part, Wikka provides the same framework. Much of the work involved with setting up any PHP application involves mundane things such as look-and-feel, session management, authentication, back-end support, etc. -- things that Wikka already provide. The groundwork for making Wikka "invisible" has already been laid. The purpose of this page is to discuss the possibilities of using Wikka as a rapid development framework.

The idea isn't to hack Wikka into a usable application prototype, but rather to use Wikka as the engine for application prototype development.
 


Discussion

Some of the components off the top of my head I think would be necessary to start with:

It might be useful to "unify" these components with the end goal of providing framework functionality, rather than existing as discrete components that may or may not function well together.
