- Supported by a big community
- lots of clones of well succeeded web sites already developed in open source
- fast code and fast learning ( I know that these requirements can be contradictory)
- it is still maintained (continuing development) and it is likely to be for years a good choice
I know that there are several ones, but my search did not answer my question.
Codeigniter: I used in the past and I love it. However people say that it is not going to be a good choice since it is not being developed anymore. Furthermore, some people suggest that I could work faster using yii, for instance. What I've found so far:
Cake php: it has a lot of clones of large sites. However, some people suggest that it is not scalable.
Zend framework: steep learning curve.
I know there are several more like Yii, Laravel, Sinfony, and others. Which would you recommend that matches my requirements?
