Top 5 most popular PHP Framework in 2014

PHP is one of the most popular server-side scripting language nowadays, that's why PHP developers have plenty of options when they want to use a framework or web application framework for their projects. To lessen repetitive code, minimize tedious tasks, make the development more organize and faster, developers built and used PHP frameworks.

A web application framework (WAF) is a software framework that is designed to support the development of dynamic websites, web applications, web services and web resources. The framework aims to alleviate the overhead associated with common activities performed in web development. For example, many frameworks provide libraries for database access, templating frameworks and session management, and they often promote code reuse.

The following lists are the top 5 most popular PHP Frameworks in 2014:

     1.   Laravel

"Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching. " - continue...

"What could be more useful than an application developed by users for their own needs? This is the story of the genesis of Symfony – born from the imagination of the web designers at SensioLabs, a web developer in its own right. Symfony was made available to everyone under an Open Source license. This benefits other developers, who also have the ability to improve it by adding their own modules. All this was done in an environment of Best Practices, standardization and interoperability of applications." - continue...
