What options are there for really fast PHP application development?

I'm developing mostly admin pages for customers and recently I've been looking into ExtJS which seems nice too. But it's a steep learning curve so I think I'm going to pass this one. Right now it doesn't seem easy but it looks nice because it has so many options for creating nice editable tables etc...

When I was young applications like Visual Basic and Delphi were there to create a PC app very very quickly.

But doesn't there exist something that would allow creating applications visually for PHP too?

Or what do you use for creating easy PHP application forms and tables with validation etc...

Essential Studio for PHP is an option to consider. It is a set of UI components that can be used to build PHP applications in a rapid manner.

The whole product is vailable for free through the community license if you qualify (less than 1 million USD in revenue).

Essential Studio for PHP

Note: I work for Syncfusion


Try PHPRad

In my opinion it is a great tool for rapid development of php web applications with a mysql or MariaDB database.

The learning curve is very simple, in less than a week I mastered the tool completely.
