This part in the comparison table try to summarize the important features of the main PHP frameworks.

Object-relational mapping (ORM) are components that helps you to transform your databases access in a more friendly object oriented manner. Instead of manipulating records, you manipulate objects and could most of the time forget about all the SQL queries that goes behind the scene.

Code generation make developers life easier by creating files and default content automatically so you don't have to.

Edge Side Includes (ESI) allows, with a compliant gateway cache, to cache a page fully and to update only parts of the page that have changed.


This section is an important part, it helps you to directly go to the section essential when using a new framework: the tutorials and documentation. Have a look at the tutorial and documentation to get a quick view at the code verbosity, and the documentation quality.

  • That's an amazing table, never saw anything like it! I remember one PHP developer once told me that Laravel is the extended Symfony and 'uses' it in many ways. Or maybe it was vise versa. Don't really remember. It says a good PHP developer should know a few PHP frameworks - Is that true? Trying to figure out which framework is the best to start with.
