How to choose the right PHP Framework for web development?
I'm a PHP Pro, but haven't use any PHP framework till now, so I have no clue on
how to choose a PHP framework on the site: PHPKode. Do you have some tips to help me choose the/a right PHP Framework?
I want a stable and secure PHP framework for Projects with about 400 hours development time.
It should be possible to use the framework on Shared-Hosting-Webservers.
I don't need some AJAX support (I'm using extJS).
It would be nice if the framework supports Rapid Application Development
and object-relational mapping.
Also some of the standard-functions (Authentification, form validation) would
be nice. Caching would be a usefull, but isn't needed.
Needs for a PHP framework:
- for Projects between 200 und 400 hours work
- Developing Modell "Rapid Application Development" supported
- object-relational mapping supported
- Already finished Modules (e.g. Authentification, form validation, ..)
- Easy to learn
Which PHP framework is the right one I am seeking for?
PHP is a widely used, powerful programming language that lets us create massive web applications. Other scripting languages that can be used aside from PHP are ASP and Ruby. However, PHP is still being implemented the most, and it's no designs of backing down. PHP's popularity is attributed to how simple it is to learn and use, in difference to other scripting languages.
Codeignitor to look at
I think to start 'codeignitor' is a good one. It is a small footprint on server (less bytes) and loose-coupling. I dont think it takes you long to figure CI. OR you can go for Zend

I'd advise you to take a close look at either Zend Framework or Symfony2, or CodeIgniter. They are all excellent frameworks where I prefer Symfony2.
