When ElliseLab left CI, its users started feeling as they are orphans. But its time for adoption.

I used CI on more than 12 project. So after CI, which MVC is good ? I have shortlisted following frameworks :




Nicely documented.




Still new and makes it very difficult to run on cPanel based shared hosting.

Confusing when coming through Codeigniter. Not so well documented.




Nicely documented, very easy to learn after working on Codeigniter




Documentation is not so good. Little bit confusing.




Takes lot of time to learn. Lots n lots of classes and libraries.




Never used.


It is said that Codeigniter is the fastest MVC framework compared to any of them. On many forums, people are saying Laravel is good but I didnt see exact points why Laravel is good.



Please suggest me a framework which have very good community and forum support, good performance and pretty stable enough.

Personally I am thinking about Laravel or FuelPHP

Fuel is the only one that I've never heard of, guess I need to check it.  It's all a personal preference, but I prefer Cake though it's quite different from CI.

mysql_function(): WARNING: This extension is deprecated as of PHP 5.5.0, and will be removed in the future. Instead, the MySQLi or PDO_MySQLextension should be used. See also MySQL: choosing an API guide and related FAQ for more information.

I would check out PhalconPHP, the speed cannot be beat and it has everything you need.

Except that it is a php extension. So it makes it far less portable.

Any framework is better than CI to be honest. It was terribly designed.

Out of those mentioned Laravel is my favourite. The only other I would rate is Symfony.
