I was quite happy with the fact that there is a ready to use project for simple REST/RPC interfaces besides Mezzio and MVC.
However, a closer look revealed several problems. In combination with Doctrine, the API tools are simply unusable for inexperienced users who only want to use the tool via the admin UI. There are still references that point to the third-party library
Phpro\DoctrineHydrationModule. Dependencies to old PHP versions, not considered new PHP versions, etc. pp. After digging deeper I found that comment from 2020, where the Laminas API Tools are treated as kinda deprecated.
… so there is no need to invest time in maintaining it
For this reason I simply have to ask if it is still worth using the Laminas API tools at all? Is there an end in sight? Does it make sense for me as a developer to invest time and skills in further development to make changes and improvements available as a GitHub feature?
Should I still be using Laminas API Tools in 2022? What alternatives that are better maintained are there?
