I hope you're all doing well. I have a question regarding PHP frameworks and URL routing or mapping. I have been working on a web application using PHP and I'm now at a point where I need to define the routes or URLs for different pages and handle them properly.
I have some experience with control structures in PHP, and I find them quite handy for managing conditional logic. However, I'm not sure if it's appropriate to use control structures for handling routing or URL mapping in PHP frameworks.
I've heard about frameworks like Laravel, Symfony, and CodeIgniter, which seem to have their own routing systems. But I'm wondering if I can still use control structures like if statements or switch cases to handle routing in these frameworks? Or is it better to stick to the built-in routing mechanisms provided by the frameworks?
I understand that frameworks have their own conventions and best practices, but I'm curious to know if control structures can be used in this context. I would appreciate any insights or advice from those of you who have experience with PHP frameworks and URL routing.
Thank you in advance for your help!
