— Ain't onion and hexagonal kinda the same thing but from different point of views?


In my opinion it is complex arch . I prefer active record like eloquent (in laravel) and when the application become complex . I use services or repositories

— Forther more , yes active record can not be unit tested . but if the developer welly iterested in test . can use integration tests with db queries and transactions.

— Integration tests suck

— Well, it's more of a short-term thing, but it makes sense in its context

— Why ?

— But sometimes they're even more important than unit tests

— Slow as fuck

— Well, all depends on code, I'll agree to sometimes

— Not if you have good machine (with ssd) . and if your application is simple you can use sqlite db in memory

— Imho, it depends on the kind of app that your developing. For example, recently my team got assigned a 2 million € project for BIC. That project requires highly detailed architecture design before starting to code as well as tons of integrations, with their integration tests
