Frameworks for newbs

P: 97
I'm wondering what a usable - but modern - set of technologies is for someone that isn't very experienced with coding. I've been coding for about three years and think I have a fairly decent understanding of the basics but trying to use modern frameworks just seems too difficult.

I've tried using node.js (V5.1.0), with express. I have version 3.3.12 of npm. I've tried using things like passport and lockit but I just cannot get authentication to work. I've tried using Laravel which is supposed to be able to set authentication with a single line of code on the command line but that doesn't work for me either.

I want to create an app but it needs authentication and I'm tired of wasting my time trying to make these things work. I've built stuff with basic php (vanilla, handwritten stuff) that works but it seems like it's just outdated technology. Is there a framework that will work for someone that doesn't have decades of experience, and isn't overly complicated?

tbh, I don't find Node, Express, or passport overly complicated, once you got the basic.

I don't want to be rude but could I ask how many years of experience you have with coding?
