I am a fond user of CodeIgniter; the documentation is amazing and the community is even greater!

Hi.

If I were to adopt a framework, I would probably go with either Zend Framework or the CakePHP framework.

I would probably go with Zend because, well... their Zend :P

Honestly, I've reviewed all of them and when you get stuck at a problem, you'll waste that much time that the framework "saved" you, on finding or fixing that problem.

Most of the large frameworks have their code hidden. While I always say a Framework is as good as its manual, nothing beats a framework that YOU wrote, the manual is ALL in your head and hence makes it very easy to use.

I have tried Zend, CakePHP and looked at the manuals for Symphony and CodeIgniter: None of them worked for me.


I developed my own simple 3 file framework that I use as easily as these larger ones without the bloated code and functionality.

It is strictly created to easily update the model, separate the application logic, and I use Smarty for the view (presentation) layer.

Once i've fine tuned it, i'll publish it, but till then, you've no choice but to try your luck with the Frameworks I mentioned.


thanks for reading,

Everyone has their own tastes; i like CodeIgniter, Dan likes his own and Atli likes Zend.

The only way YOU can decide is by taking some of the more well known frameworks and giving them a test run. And then deciding based on your own views.
