I hate big, fat frameworks. They take all the creative fun out of programming and just make you conform to someone else's API. Not to mention the API is usually unidiomatic to its host language and basically a world of its own.


The thing about big fat frameworks is that it's usually a lot easier to implement all the features you need from them yourself from scratch than it is to learn the parts of the API you need to learn to use them via the framework -- and the resulting code is not just smaller but easier to maintain, since it depends on behaviors less subject to change.
