#51507 new defect (bug)

Ability to use as a framework

WordPress provides more than 600+ framework-like functions (get_option/set_option, transcients, sanitize-functions and more, which are seen in test).
I doubt that there may be other people like our company, where we use WordPress as a backend helper framework, to make use of it's goodies (hundreds of useful functions).

As speed & performance matter, people has asked for this feature many times (i.e. example1 or example2)

It might be some useful to have one additional alternative for "SHORTINIT" constant:

  • SHORTINIT_WITHOUT_DB (to return from "wp-settings.php" right before require_wp_db())

# Performance gains #
Per my tests, compared to SHORTINIT, this approach loads wp-core about 10x faster (avoiding DB calls, etc).

Attaching the patches.

To test simply:

$x= microtime(true);
define('SHORTINIT_WITHOUT_DB', true);  //as opposed to define('SHORTINIT', true); 
var_dump(  microtime(true)- $x );
