I want to write an small app for meeting and task organization. Nothing too complex. Only a few users which can take over tasks, join meetings, and some managers who create tasks and meetings. In addition a bit of statistics, showing available meetings, tasks (by category). Fancy stuff like swimmlanes is not needed. Meetings and tasks are mostly text, a date and persons.

For this I want to use a small PHP framework/microframework that has the following features:

  • User management
  • Stable and secure
  • Well documented (existing community is a plus)
  • Easy to learn for an advanced programmer (object orientation is a plus)
  • Open-source
  • Either supports display of nicely looking lists (and filtering by category) OR
  • Works well together with a Javascript library (which one) that allows nicely looking lists
  • compactness of the framework is a plus
  • To be honest, I don't see that you need a framework for this. It might just get in your way and add a learning curve. Is it really so difficult to do this in pure PHP? Even then, you could still format it client-side with JS. Bonus tip, for MySql access, use PDO. Feb 20, 2015 at 15:04

    @Mawg Thank you for the comment. This is surely also an option. However I have some time for learning a framework - it will pay off later I guess. Surely there are some things that you don't need to do yourself when using a framework, so it would probably be an option, especially if you want to learn one and if you want to be able to extend your app later on.
