I hate "frameworks"

28 Sep, 2006

Give me a "toolkit" or "library" over a "framework" any hour of the day.

A software framework offers to solve 80% of my problem, but usually without understanding what my problem actually is.

A toolkit is collection of tools. I can pick them up and use them as I see fit. I can use individual tools/components, without needing to adopt them all. I can use them in conjunction with other tools I have, without voiding any warranties.
