I have to put together a quick proposal for a site that, for now,

some help with PHP best practices. Are their PHP equivalents for
Test:Unit, autotest, capistrano…? basically I just need some
buzzwords for this meeting before we make them drink the rails Kool
PHP has PHPUnit and Phing - and as noted on other threads the Symfony
framework has some rails flavor to it as well.
The difference from my experience as a PHP->Rails convert, is that
you can do a lot of the same things in PHP but you have to take a
build-it-yourself attitude; whereas Rails, RSpec and Capistrano give
you so much more right out of the box.
Here’s a funny story for you guys - I’m working on a huge PHP project
right now, and I’m using Rails on my macbook (on the sly, of course)
to manage changes to the datamodel with migrations. I hope none of
those guys read this list.
