But the size of the underlying framework isn’t the only thing that matters. It is important to consider the size of the application code as well. For a big enough app, that size should dominate the framework size.
The framework can have a large impact on the size of the application code. A full-featured framework should provide tools that allow us to write a lot less of our own application code.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to know up front just how big the application is going to get. But it is worth comparing the features of the various frameworks with the features we need for our application in order to make the best decision about which one might be the best fit.
