Anyone have any experience?
compared to CI?

the one thing that is giving me the willies about CI is that it is still php4 compatible...

Looked in to Kohana once, I think I concluded that although I liked the standards it adopted, and iirc its RESTful, but it didn't look to have a wide enough community to warrant use. One of the major advantages I find with using Zend Framework is that there is a wide spread community I can turn to for help with the learning curve.

yea I get it.

The reasons I originally tried out CI were the community, and the fact that it is actually backed by a company with a real product on the market that makes them decent money.

Zend/cake/symphony are too big for my taste. I prefer small, "core" style frameworks. That was one reason I could never get into .NET way back when.

It seems pretty similar to CI, but using modern conventions instead of PHP4 and is strictly OOP.
Those two reasons, and some stupid-coding-methods I have now become aware of in CI, like manually loading classes and such, is annoying me.
I want to be MORE standards based, not less.

BUT...

my concern is that Kohana is a fad, or under supported, or going to die off.
CI on the otherhand, has Expression Engine, and 2.0 is built on it, so to hack EE, I would already know the methodology making it easier.

BAH. i just need to hire a programmer. lol

hmmm now that i have looked a bit more. It looks like Kohana is basically CI but minus some of the PHP4 stupidity and a few bits of simplification.

im gonna rewrite 4sp.in in kohana and see how that goes. Nice simple testcase.

V3 is woefully under documented. The cocepts are the same as v2 it seems, but the actual details are different.
But so far it's about the same as ci minus some stupidity. I'm sure I will find new stupidity though.
