Hello, I've been dabbling in PHP for some time now and I've come to the realisation that I'm wasting to much time doing things that frameworks have an out of the box solution for.

So I've decided i have to pick one and go with it. I've tried cakePHP and symfony, sort of liked them both but haven't made my decision yet.

So here's a poll and I hope some experienced developers can shed some light on this. What framework do you use and why? Obviously this is by no means a complete list so if you're favourite framework is not in here just post it.


PHP frameworks help you to write clean and reusable code. For the selection of PHP framework some prefer performance, some prefer better documentation, some prefer amount of built-in functions. From 2012 yiiframework, codelgniter, Zend Framework, Cake PHP, Symfony are the top PHP framework based on its popularity, but selecting of frame each have their reasons.

Hi, which framework to choose depends on ther purpose of your project.
Currenty Laravel is very strong. In addition, it's work good with VueJs, AngularJs for frontend.

This website (popularinfo.net) uses the Backend Laravel, Frontend is VueJs and AngularJS 1.5.
It is not really good but shows a good combination of Laravel.
