    Toujours parmi le top 5 et souvent bon premier. Yii a une prise en main rapide et ensuite une courbe d'apprentissage dans la moyenne. La communauté derrière assure une bonne pérennité.

    Though i tend to move to symfony2 if Yii cannot release Yii 2.0 soon with the RESTful controller, it's still the one my company builds on products on and I definitely love Yii. The problem is HTML5 is around the corner in term of getting framework builders focus and the whole application architecture is changing, toward client side. Yii and Symfony2 are the only 2 frameworks i think would be able to adapt with this move.
