- Standardize common parts of PHP tools and frameworks to provide a unified programmer interface to these tools, allowing more rapid development by programmers and versatility of their experience across frameworks.
- Make standards for things related to PHP development if such would benefit the community
In doing this, it is the goal to prioritize shortest-path standards. If a good solution already exists but is not standard worthy, the standard should be the shortest path to the ideal from the good solution so as to allow both
- The builder of the good solution to modify their tool to meet the standard
- The programmers using the good solution to have least surprise when using the standard
In general, the effort of PHP-SG is to improve the productivity and happiness of good PHP developers.
