Without wanting to start a whole frameworks argument, I will state that I traditionally don’t like them. I think I’ve had to work with too much bad code written in them. It took me a long time to figure out that there’s a difference between bad frameworks, and bad code written within a framework. Despite realizing that they weren’t the actual problem, I never really gotten into them. I guess I was set in my ways.
That is until I tried Model-Glue:Unity. I have to say, the lazy programmer in me is intrigued. If you aren’t into frameworks, I highly recommend that you give Unity a real look. If you don’t feel like looking at the code and documentation to get a feel for it, check out this video of building a blog in Unity. The cool thing is that it really is that simple once you get going with it. I think it will be enough to convince you to give it a download.
It certainly convinced me. I’m writing my next personal project in it, so that I can really wrap my mind around it.
