Hi guys

I am a php programmer and  in a big confusion. I want to learn a framework, but can't figure out which one start ?

 

CakePHP

Codelgniter

Symfony

laravel

 

I am new to them, so you can suggest me which one to start 1st and move on to other. Or If i miss any other framework , you can tell me that also.

 

Any help is appriciable.

Thanks

Codelgniter is an abomination and a dying project so forget it.

Any of the other 3 are probably worthwhile though I don't hear much about Cake these days (but that is likely just the circles I hang in).

As for where to start. This question gets asked all the time and the answer is always the same. Try them all and see.

If I were in your position I would spend a weekend with each, and then decide. They are all very capable, so it's just personal opinions as to which one you like best.

Also consider Yii

To start, press any key. Where's the 'Any' key?

Thanks for your suggestions. I started with codeIgniter as to have an understanding, how a framework works.

CodeIgnitor will teach you nothing.

I've used a few frameworks in my time and I've found the best one to be Laravel but that's my personal opinion.

 

Also, @trq I'm getting the feeling you really dislike CI. Good job :)

Everyone should hate it, its just a really big class - pile of (insert very foul word).

I'm extremely fond of laravel. Put together such that its relatively intuitive and provides some extremely useful features. Its also quite a mature framework which is generally a good thing.

Laravel is best choice.

 

Now, in laravel 4.3(official release in september) the app structure is a more "programming approach". You will be really happy to work with laravel.

codeIgniter is an easy to understand as well as you can learn it very easily. Start one by one and you will get confidence to work with all.

I thought I read the other day that because of the amount of changes in Laravel 4.3 it was being pushed out as Laravel 5?
