I think WordPress needs... (2 posts)

    Recently I worked with Symfony and Drupal, but now I found a job where many customers uses WordPress, and they needs mods and plugins.

    Beginning my work on WordPress, I found that it is very good for blogging, but it lacks some features that could make it easier to build extensions.

    - An "Object-Relational Mapping" library could be useful. A developer will not have to "reinvent the wheel" to save and retrieve data, and sanitize it. Like on Symfony.

    - Helpers to generate form fields and sanitize/validate the data. Like on Symfony.

    - It may be useful to manage PHP Sessions, starting or ending a session when the user logs in or out, allowing to use $_SESSION to store informations. Like on Symfony.

    - It needs a centralized error/events logging. Like on Drupal.

    I think these features would be very useful. Maybe these could be implemented with modules, anyway I think them should be integrated in the WordPress distribution, so module developers will know they can use them.

    Maybe these features already exists, but I didn't found them, so I would be happy to see if these features are already implemented somewhere, before I start to implement them by myself...

    Hear hear!
    An ORM would greatly expedite all sorts of data management tasks.
