I have been coding PHP for a few decades now, but have never used a framework. Instead I have a home-brew collection of common functionality.
I am considering a PHP framework and wonder what is available. I welcome answers from personal experience.
I am interested in AJAX only, but won't reject anything that handles other stuff, just as long as I get good, stable AJAX (the only non-Ajax functionality that I can imagine using is user registration/change password/lost password, but I can get that elsewhere).
- I currently use PDO to connect to MySql and would like that to be supported.
- I would appreciate good exception handling & debugging possibilities.
- and security features
- I suppose that raw speed plays a part.
- as does documentation, examples, tutorials, forums
Anything other features? I am not really sure what to expect from a framework.
