Why I support the league

Excellent post by Rafael Dohms  on the The League Of Extraordinary packages.

“The League of Extraordinary Packages” is what I have dubbed a collective of composer packages. Its essentially a group of developers who have gathered under a single flag (or in this case a vendor name) and set standards for the packages that live there.

So these are a few reasons I like this effort:

  • Imposed Quality, Curated List …
  • Reduced author fragility …
  • Extended reach …
  • Reduced duplication …

Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band.
