When I started out with PHP, every project I worked on required me to keep typing incessantly, not that I don’t like my keyboard or the keys on it, but sometimes the syntax does get to you, especially if you are write code in various scripts and languages and not to mention the missing/dangling braces!
I started to research PHP based alternative syntaxes to help me with preserving my keyboard and my sanity.
