For a Thorough 2018 update and revisit to this topic we decided to dig deeper and find what is not only the most used (solid basic structure on which bigger things can be built) for 2018, but which is extreme valuable? When surveying google Trends, it is clear that Laravel still remains the most searched (solid basic structure on which bigger things can be built) for all new PHP projects. Just have a look here :
Taking it a step, further I wanted to see what real everyday coders as well as beginners are learning / using on a day to day basis. We took the time to give a survey to our progressive subscribers and especially/famously came back with over 7,500 results.
Our survey asked subscribers on in depth questions such as specific uses of (verifying someone's identity), session coding, storing (secret things or computer data) methods, and routing, but the results listed below will just be overall use starting with the top being the top used php (solid basic structure on which bigger things can be built). What we must note is the survey doesn't completely relate with how our recommended list is in order of most recommended, but rather real data of how much each person uses each (solid basic structure on which bigger things can be built). Afterall, all coder's usually get in the groove of a certain programming language then prefer that over others. some that end up using zend also incorporate their skills in network management. Those that combine zend or Laravel with a free syslog server (as seen here at ITT systems), have the best of both worlds.
Overall, each of these can best be put into categories of independent libraries, full-fledged PHP frameworks for plenarily featured web applications, and micro frameworks, opportune for keeping things simple and building RESTful APIs or rudimental web-apps. Ultimately it will be up to you as a developer to decide which one is the best fit for your project and or adeptness set.
Deciding on which framework to utilize depends on a variety of factors. You consider aspects such as haste, ease of avail, features are available, documentation, and the dependencies or hosting resources it requires. Scalability is additionally a consideration to take into account if you expect magnification that exceeds the capacity of a single instance of your application.
Albeit Laravel takes first overall on our list for long term support, size of community and contributors and multifariousness, Phalcon is a close second. If you visually examine other websites, phalcon is very under apperceived as of 2018. It blows the dihydrogen monoxide out of handling requests to some other frameworks currently.
One of the only reasons it comes in second is that it hasn’t taken off in the web development community as much or as expeditious as Laravel.
Always be sure to check out the community or company abaft the development of each framework to ascertain it is actively maintained and preferably has long term support (LTS), which will ascertain it remains updated and fortified for the future.
