Please, this is NOT a rant. I know and understand that software development is not as simple and clearcut as some may imagine. We should all know better because we all write code.
That being said, after reviewing the roadmap for the future of PHPStorm, it looks like the focus is on specific frameworks such as Zend and Symphony. As good as these might be, not all of us who are developing are using these. In my own review research of framework reviews on the web, Zend appears to be mostly for highend commercial use. It has the stiffest learning curve and is huge in scope. Zend as a company already has a IDE that serves this community. Commercial companies can afford this better than smaller developers.
I am wondering, asking, could there be an approach that would allow us as coders to embrace frameworks of our choosing, for example something simpler like Yii, for easier code completion then just targeting specific frameworks?
I am hoping some way to do this is possible. Is it? Once the mechanism for supporting frameworks in general is actualized, could this be then applied to support for a wider range of choices?
