I picked up & Lumen the last 3 weeks for a new project...  and I don’t think I’ve ever been this productive in my life. Super excited with what I’m building right now... most exciting PHP project in a long time. \o/

Oy vey! I really dislike it promotes writing bad code and relies on too much magic. While it is possible, it is difficult to get around calling static methods. Mocking is a nightmare. Tools like phpstan can't deal with all the magic methods without lots of help. 🤢

@dshafik It's not a question of purity it is a question of maintainability. Poor hard to test code is going to eventually cost you more in time and money.
