PHP Frameworks: Make Web Development More Facile

In connection to our earlier blog post which was titled “Top PHP Frameworks That Rules Web Development Industry”. In our previous blog post, you had read the basic definition of PHP framework, why it is important for web development services, and also get familiar with few PHP frameworks such as Laravel, Symfony and Phalcon.

In this blog, we will continue our previous discussion related to remained PHP frameworks, so let’s start our exchange of views on left PHP frameworks:

Various PHP Frameworks Are As Follows:


CakePHP released in the year 2005, is the oldest Framework and still is the most used and popular framework after the release of other latest versions of PHP frameworks. It is one of the easiest frameworks because of its CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) methodology which allows you to design or develop visually impressive, attractive websites with lots of features.

The best advantage of using CakePHP is its security features including SQL injection prevention, cross-site request forgery (CSRF) protection, and cross-site scripting (XSS) protection.


Another framework is there which is more than a decade old named Codelgniter released in the year 2006. It can be the best choice if you need a lightweight framework because it is only 2MB in size and easy to download and install.

As you know that it also based on MVC-based architecture which enables you to use inbuilt security tools, simple and excellent documentation and also able to create or develop scalable apps. Due to its size, simple setup process and highly illustrated documentation, it’s ideal for beginners to design lightweight applications on modest servers.


Yii (which stands for “Yes, it is!”) another old PHP framework, which was launched in the year 2008 and lost its popularity after the release of Symfony and Laravel framework. It has a code generator called Gii which includes many features that are essential to developing modern web applications.

Yii is a universal web programming framework as it is suitable for all kinds of Web Application Development. This framework is highly extensible and provides you excellent speed and avoids the complexity of writing repetitive SQL statements as well. As per professionals, the documentation of the Yii framework is much better and easy to use as compared to other PHP frameworks.


Many professionals recognize Zend as a glue framework because of its component-based nature. It is an object-oriented, Model View Controller (MVC) framework that allows you to ignore irrelevant things and only upload components or functions you need as an individual library.

Zend is a little difficult to learn, which makes it ideal for seniors or expert developers to design or develop any website on Zend. If you want to design your website or application on the Zend framework, it is better to hire an experienced Web Developer (especially Zend development professional) to perform this task efficiently.

In the end, I hope that both blogs may help you to understand all PHP frameworks and allow you to work on it comfortably.
