PHP MVC framework worth looking into ?

P: n/a


I recently started working at a company and it sounds like I am
slated for a new web 2.0 project that will begin in a few weeks in
PHP. I have done alot of C++, Perl, and Java as well as Ruby On Rails,
which I think Rails is probably what I'd prefer to work in but it
doesn't seem to have caught on enough so that many companies still
prefer PHP and it's not really up to me what to do it in. Anyway, I
saw on the PHP Wiki and in a number of posts that the MVC stuff out
there for PHP looks like CakePHP, PRADO and Symfony. I guess Zend has
something as well ? I was at the book store and saw a book on Symfony
and am tempted to just go down and buy it so I have something to
study. I suspect using a framework would make it easier, especially if
I have some lead time to study it. Any comments on that ? The two
books I currently have is PHP 5 Power Programming and I just bought
PHP in a nutshell. I saw that that you can create Flash stuff in PHP,
which I was never aware of that. I may also get the PHP cookbook as I
have found that this style of book has been usefull to me. Any other
book recomendations or thoughts on PHP MVC stuff would be appreciated.

From what I understand, those are on the heavier side. For something
lighter, check out Code Igniter

Not bad,

I took a look at it, downloaded it and studied the documentation a
little. I doesn't look like it does any ajax stuff, but appears
lightweight as you mention. I found this, a big list:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...frameworks#PHP

It appears for ajax there is CakePHP and Symfony which seem to have
the best name recognition as well as ajax from my surfing the web
today.

There's another MVC framework called Kumbiaforms, which is like cake
but not that big... but is still useful... it was developed by the
colombian comunity, but is mantained by many persons, so i guess it
will be usefull...

i've been using it for a couple weeks and well it helps... :p,

I haven't looked at that part yet, but I read there are Ajax add-ons.
Browse their site, including the forums and wiki for more information.
