My first crack(or one of the first) at frameworks was ZF. I actually managed to set it up with the "First install" instructions (no script then to set up a project). Ok, all good until that.. Then to make something useful..reading the docs..everything out of context. Damn! I really felt stupid reading the docs and try to get the examples to work, but failing with 90% of them because my crystal ball was out of order and didnt know what the author have done BEFORE that particular example snippet Smile I dont know how its now but back then the MVC implementation sucked balls big time and wasnt nearly as good as in CI(or maybe I just didnt know how to implement it properly.. again bad docs Smile ).

ZF really needs some best practises and proper documentation(for us dumb people). And ZF really is a resource hog, atleast when coded improperly(and thanks to not having best practises, we dont know what is the way to code proprely). When you really need couple of the libraries at the same time, it can cost a lot in CPU & memory. We have a customer whose website(medium sized) was made taking "advantage" of ZF in many ways. This site was first installed on our shared server but we had to move it to a virtual server as it almost crippled the server on its own. ONE request took 25 megs of memory initially. After optimizing the best they could, they squeezed it to 15 Megs with some kind of caching etc. which was still quite alot as the website was nothing fancy.
