Re: An Ideal Web Development Environment

It looks to me that lot's of things you listed here should be easily added on top of framework instead of being provided by it. Here's the things i really care about web frameworks:

  1. Docs !!
  2. Tutorials.
  3. Database support (not only MySQL, or only Postgress) All 3 big vendors (Oracle, IBM, MSSQL)
  4. Templates
  5. I do not care about ORM, but it should be easy to plug one. Not bad if one is presented.
