May I asked how they destroyed it so badly?
Essentially everything that made it useful. Changed the entity model, modularized everything to the extreme, removed code generation in a zillion places. I've tried to get started with the new "Flex" thingy, and it just went nowhere, and it didn't even go there fast.
I'm thinking about moving to Laravel, like thousands of other developers, but that is a complete re-learn and I'm not sure I have the time to write code AND learn a new framework.
