What is NestJS?

Nest is a framework for building efficient, scalable Node.js server-side applications. It uses progressive JavaScript, is built with TypeScript (preserves compatibility with pure JavaScript) and combines elements of OOP (Object Oriented Programming), FP (Functional Programming), and FRP (Functional Reactive Programming). Under the hood, Nest makes use of Express, but also, provides compatibility with a wide range of other libraries, like e.g. Fastify, allowing for easy use of the myriad third-party plugins which are available.

What is Play?

Play Framework makes it easy to build web applications with Java & Scala. Play is based on a lightweight, stateless, web-friendly architecture. Built on Akka, Play provides predictable and minimal resource consumption (CPU, memory, threads) for highly-scalable applications.

What is Zend Framework?

Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications and services using PHP 5.3+. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.

        Review ofZend FrameworkZend Framework

        Zend framework is firstly designed for experienced professional developers, who have been part of international teams for years. With Zend Framework one could harness nuances of high scale eLearning, eCommerce and eBanking applications without fuss and implement robust, market demands meeting solutions. Zend Framework ships simple, without modules installed, so firstly to build up bare-bones for simple modular app, you will have to preinstall the set of GitHub hosted plugins and modules. Added to the mix, Microsoft is one of the main sponsors of the Zend Framework project, so your company would experience state of the art technologies mash up right away from the beginning of implementing theoretical application project to code stack. All in all, several international associations are awaiting you to enroll to enhance the experience of using Zend Framework 2.

        Play is a central framework/component/library (not sure what to call things these days) in Scala. We <3 Scala, and therefore we <3 Play.

        Play is on of several frameworks we are prototyping and vetting for various public-facing websites, and may ultimately be the framework behind the main datapile.io website.

        I used Play to build a configuration UI for the service, which let you create and manage the menus (a hierarchical tree of options and actions).

        The older parts of our core are still using ZF1. We are migrating to simpler framework agnostic controllers with 3rd party components.
