So that those of us who appreciate that Yii is a non-bloated PHP Framework can enjoy it.
There are already addons for both of these 'competing' frameworks..
All I ask of Yii is this:
1) Semantic CSS - CSS3 with fallback for older browsers (see next point)
2) Full HTML5 support with Modernizr as fallback.
Extensions were made to 'extend' Yii.
And that's the way I think it should be.
Feel free to create an Easy-Yii bundle.
I think it sounds like a great idea.
But why you'd want this come bundled with the framework is beyond me.
I started this discussion I think, with my request to replace Blueprint with something more modern.
We already have well-maintained extension for both Bootstrap and Foundation - so we have it: right now.
Should it become bundled with Yii?
Yii is like a Sushi knife: elegant tool in the right hands.
It's not a Swiss Army Knife - and I hope that it never becomes one.
If it does, there's enough PHP frameworks out there to shake a stick at - muhaha.
Theoretically this is ok, but as I've already said, the point is that Yii needs to show something so, unless you want unstyled html lists instead of menus etc., we need a default style and Bootstrap 2 perfectly fits the purpose. You could always replace it with something else just like you can always replace jQuery (which is currently bundled) but having to show something we need a default style to be shown.
