It’s Important to know which framework to use while developing a web application for your website. There are so many options available. Which One Should You Choose? Many frameworks are available for PHP, but CodeIgniter and Laravel are the most popular PHP frameworks, because both have great features. But even after narrowing down these two options, you have to choose among these best alternatives. You will find strong opinion on either side of the framework fence.
CodeIgniter is a robust and powerful, open-source PHP framework, which is built for programmers looking for a simple and well-designed toolkit to develop web applications. CodeIgniter has been the preferred choice of developers for years. It is designed to be instinctive for new learners and helps develop projects much faster than other frameworks. It also provides an affluent set of libraries, along with simple interface and logical structure to access those libraries.
Laravel is also an open-source PHP framework, first made available to users in 2011. Since then it has gained popularity and is used in most web applications. Laravel is designed with the latest version of PHP and includes many components, including authentication support, and unit testing.
Both the frameworks have unique features, and provide flexibility to programmers developing web-based applications. There are some key differences to consider while choosing the best one for your website development.
How to Choose the Best Framework?
