What is the difference and when to use vendor/magento/framework code, and when to use the vendor/magento/module-* code?

1 Answer 1


Under the vendor/magento/framework folder, magento 2 is keeping its core logic, the basic functionalities which are widely used in the rest of the modules under the vendor/magento/module-*/.

For example take a look in vendor/magento/framework/Url.php class and you will find methods as getUrl() or getCurrentUrl(). Or in vendor/magento/framework/Registry.php class, at registry($key), register($key, $value, $graceful = false), unregister($key) methods.
