PHP is a programming language that is extensively utilised in large projects. For example, Facebook uses PHP to maintain and develop its internal systems. WordPress’ internals is powered by PHP, which in turn powers more than 26% of the internet. PHP now powers over 82 % of all websites (whose server-side programming languages the Web Technology Surveys site can track).
We’ll look at three of the most popular PHP frameworks in this section: Symfony, Laravel, and Yii. We’ll look at how they compare so you can figure out which one is the greatest fit for your needs.
Why should you use PHP’s Yii2 framework?
What is the benefit of using a framework rather than plain PHP to create your application? The following are some of the advantages of adopting a framework:
Yii2 is a secure, quick, high-performance application/web-development framework created by Qiang Xue in 2008. Composer, a PHP dependency manager, is used by Yii to manage various requirements and installations (more on it later). Because of the lazy loading mechanism, Yii2 is also the quickest PHP framework.
jQuery integration is another excellent feature of Yii. The integration makes it easy for front-end developers to get started with the framework, and it generates code using scaffolding. Yii2, like Symfony, uses components to allow for quick application development.
