What's your favorite Framework?

97 replies
Ok everyone, we have the "what's your favorite Programming language" thread, but let's start one about frameworks.

There are several frameworks out there, there even some for CSS. Let's share some knowledge out and let's give some details as to why we like our particular framework (oh and specify the language that it works with too if you don't mind).

    Ok I'll start, My favorite framework is Fusebox. I have used several different frameworks in the past, and I keep coming back to Fusebox. Even though a lot of support for it has died over the past few years, it is a great framework when it comes to outsourcing, since you can hand out individual files, without "handing over the keys to the kingdom".

    Languages: PHP and ColdFusion - they do have other languages that they support, but I have only used PHP and ColdFusion

      I love yii for fast stuff. I tend to not use a framework anymore, but sometimes you need to kick out crud stuff fast. Can't beat it for that.

    jQuery is the best for us, you can navigate a document, create animations, handle events and develop Ajax applications. It contains the following features to help improve HTML coding:
    • DOM element selections
    • DOM traversal and modification.
    • Events
    • CSS manipulation
    • Effects and animations
    • Ajax
    • Extensibility through plug-ins
    • Utilities - such as browser version and the each function.
    • Cross-browser support

      Who in the world is gonna get anything out of this topic? It's useless.

      There are different technologies mixed and the question isn't even clear.

      You are mixing different web frameworks, runtimes and javascript or ajax frameworks.

        Although this thread is probably not of critical importance to most people (like 90% of what you'll find here), I'm not sure why you have such a problem with this thread.

        It's not like you didn't know what the topic of the thread was before you clicked it, but you clicked it anyway and proceeded to bitch about it. You knew what you were about to read before you clicked the link.

        I got something out of it. Sometimes I just like to learn about new (to me) things. Today, I learned about the yiiphpframework which was mentioned in this thread. Sure, I'll probably never use it, and it's not going to add another digit to my yearly income, but so what?

        I will agree with what one of the other posters (mojojuju) said, I wanted a variety of different topics and discussions since I work with a variety of different languages. I would not have heard about the YiiFramework - which is now on my list of frameworks to try.

        I don't know about you but in my job, (or past several) it required knowing several different frameworks - the right tool for the right job. You wouldn't use something like Fusebox for designing a High Transaction website, but you would use something like Spring (and Hibernate) or using NHibernate with .Net - by being exposed to different frameworks, it allows us as developers to become better able to perform our jobs.

        There are even css frameworks like the 960 grid framework (I believe Jason Fladlien uses that one in his designs). If you don't know it's there, then how can you use it?

        This thread is more about exposure than the "Favorite" language threads. I agree that most "Favorite Language" threads are next to useless, but frameworks on the other hand are not. Most languages people are aware of, and already have some notion about how to use them and what not, while frameworks, take some exposure, and given that this is a "Programming" topic area, I felt that this was an appropriate place to place this thread.

        But thank you for your opinion, I will be sure not to post another "What's your favorite Language thread" - not that this is one of them.

        It isn't the OP's fault that there are differing syntax to cover all that is driving the browser display and interaction industry. It is a complex area and a good Web Framework should cover 90% of all of it.

          It certainly depends on situation, to opt out for any framework. There are many frameworks available like Yii, CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Symfony, Zend.

          I would like to suggest CodeIgniter to be used for beginner level. It can be used for small or middle scale web application. It support for a Model-View-Controller pattern. It support PHP4 & PHP5. Also you will find many tutorials & online help materials available for the same.

      .NET framework by a mile. You can create web apps, web services, Windows apps, Windows services, practically anything. So you automate things (create software robots) as much as you want.

      It's very mature environment and you can use several different languages. I use C# for everything.

      I've used ASP and PHP, and still use PHP where dictated, but do most of my stuff in .NET.

        If I'm working on a large web application, like a real appliction in the browser, I'll do something with Rails, and some heavy Javascript MVC framework like Backbone.js.

        If I'm building some small RESTful service I'll use Sinatra, or even cool.io if it doesn't require a web interface. Event-based servers are so fun!

    for PHP:
    #1 jamroom (jamroom.net)
    #2 drupal

    ajax (front end):
    #1 jquery
    #2 there is no number 2.

    as for the why Jamroom over Drupal? Because code should be stored in files, not in the database. And developing should not mean clicking around the admin control panel trying to located settings.

        Ever tried debugging an application in one of those "really powerful programming languages that disagree"? PITA

        Ever tried storing an application from one of them in a revision control system? another PITA.

        I really like drupal, but i hate having to try to guess whether 'this' piece of code is stored in the database, or in code. Its one more hassle that shouldn't be a hassle.

        Same thing with the store it in a revision control system. The current solution is to store a database dump in with the revision control. But thats a bit icky too.

        maybe i should have added a "for me" to the statement, but its something that I find really annoying.

          Well first of all Drupal isn't a programming language, it's a framework.

          Database-based languages, like MagLev, store objects or functions in a server-like database virtual machine.

          I think that might be the confusion.

    Hi

    CodeIgniter
    This is probably one of my favourite web development frameworks, and the first that I learned to use. CodeIgniter is an open source PHP framework developed by EllisLab. It is known for being a relatively light framework (under 4MB), while still providing tons of great features for quick and easy PHP development.

    CodeIgniter uses an MVC pattern, which pretty much means that you have models that handle the site's data (the database), views that take care of what the user sees, and I'd say that the controller is the part that actually does stuff.


    With Best Regards

      I'd agree with some of the comments here, my favorite won't necessarily be your favorite. So to add something constructive... :p

      I'd say CodeIgniter has the best combination of documentation and community support that I've seen in any of the frameworks I've used. It's easy to get started with, fast performance and simple to extend and I personally have found development just happens a lot quicker with CI, which is one of the main reasons for using a framework of course...

      Had limited experience with Yii, seemed a good choice at the time but found the docs and support slowed development to the point I got frustrated and went looking for other frameworks

      CakePHP is another framework definitely worth considering, very stable, well documented, support seems pretty good. It probably wins (vs CodeIgniter) on features but at the cost of simplicity IMO... it just felt that rather than me using it, IT was using ME! See this is where the personal preference thing gets in the way, depending on your coding background you might see things differently.

      I don't have enough experience of other frameworks to give an opinion, but CodeIgniter is the winner for me so far. The only other language/framework tempting me away from CI right now is Ruby on Rails, I'm just too familiar with PHP to justify the time learning Ruby when I should be working

      Just remember, you need the right tool for the job. Frameworks are great for building web applications fast without having to reinvent the wheel and its well worth the time and effort getting familiar with at least one framework, but when plain old PHP will do the job just keep it simple

    I've recently started using FuelPHP after switching from Kohana 3. Kohana being a fork of CodeIgniter because CI was too busy trying to support PHP4 still. Kohana was great, but then I tried Fuel which is very similar to Kohana except it's uses the power of PHP 5.3. You have complete control over applications with namespaces which makes development so much easier. Modules and packages are great and while it's still early in development the docs are reasonably good. Some might find them lacking but they're getting there.

    I hope you add a summary of responses.

    I too have learned the names of a few that I had not heard of before.

    Others have mentioned Drupal and is what I am using but it is more than a framework, it is a CMS application built on top of the framework. It is very active in progress of the system including caring about security of the overall system, contrib modules included. It is well documented and well supported by many. You can add to it and alter its operation via modules and if you like to write your own module they provide hooks that can alter the state of the objects. It has a robust template engine that allows template designers to code easily modifiable templates. The template I've started using even has settings for block display for mobile and pad devices. You can also use one source footprint for multiple sites and or sub-domains. Truly a work well worth being used and learning; you should give it a try.

    I used to use CodeIgniter almost exclusively till 2 years back, for developing small websites having mainly static text content and maybe a couple of forms. Nothing complex. But I switched to Symfony about 1 year into developing a slightly complex website, complete with user authentication & authorization, user profiles & management, an admin backend, ...

    Symfony does have a high learning curve, as opposed to CodeIgniter (which I was able to pick up in less than a weeks time). Not being an expert in PHP, it took me quite a while to get hold of how things are done in symfony; but I think it's well worth it.

      For those of you saying Drupal: it's not a framework, it's a content management system. They're two completely different things. As an example, Drupal could be built on any of the frameworks, but not vica versa.

      Zend is the big boy in the PHP world; everything else is pretty niche comparatively. I mainly use Symfony2 (work) but CI's documentation is the best hands-down.

        Yes the Drupal framework has a CMS which is what you get out of the box but the framework is well rounded and can be used for other things. And content is what a web framework is about anyway since without content you do not have a web. :rolleyes:

    Zend, Codeignitor, and Symphony are all good choices.

    I (liked) CakePHP, but it seems to be getting long in the tooth. Honestly though, I've been working more often with CMSes as of late, so my knowledge might be a little outdated as it pertains to PHP frameworks.

    One of these days I'd like to crack open Symphony 2.0 and give it a shot, but right now I don't have the free time or paid project to do so.

    I have tested many different framework:
    1. Codeigniter
    2. Yii
    3. Kohana
    4. Zend

    Although all these frameworks help but i am now looking for faster solution rather than building something from scratch and this is where CMS comes in. I like Joomla a lot compare to other CMS because it has huge extensions, charming templates and easy MVC framework.

    For custom solution, i usually use just php, html, css, and jquery. Code it using notepad++ and local server (xampp, uniform server, etc) is the easiest for me right now.

    I guess I don't have a favorite language - I know PHP, but I'm trying to learn Python. Tried RoR and didn't feel it was for me.

    We tend to use CodeIgniter for projects at work. The documentation is very good and it's pretty easy to pick up although I find that because it isn't really very strict you can do things the wrong way and it will let you do it.

    My personal favorite PHP framework is Laravel because it's all clean and tidy code-wise. For bigger applications I think HMVC is a better approach than MVC though.

    My favorite framework is Microsoft .net programming framework, in that programming framework there are one CLR, a full form of CLR is Common Language Runtime, it is one platform independent language so it is known as Common Language Runtime, so it is one big framework, it has so many kind of functionality that develop various software.

    Interesting read. Although the framework of my choice will be the .NET framework for its mega support and awesome environment, yet the JSP engines have started to overtake .NET somewhat now. I think that the portability they offer is hard to beat. Platform independence is the future. So get the JSP bandwagon i say!!

  • I chose CodeIgniter because it had simple and understandable user guide and it was not hard to program with it. On the other hand Zend is quite a thing if you even want to read all the manual.

    I use CodeIgniter, it's a lightweight frameworks and so easy to learn, especially for a lazy programmer like me. The URL structure already optimized for SEO, and the documentation is excellent. Beside CI, I'm also use WordPress (my #1 CMS), jQuery, and the LessFramework so I don't have to write CSS code from scratch. FYI, the lessframework is good if you're creating a website that compatible for PC/Mac and mobile (iphone, ipad, android, etc).

    I have touched on PHP frameworks before that has sparked up a lot of discussion. A lot of people swear by one framework and other developers another. Before you first get into one you might want to ask yourself if you need to use a PHP framework. You might not even need to use one. But the fact is that over time, they can significantly reduce development time.

    Almost every framework has something in common, pick the one where you're excel at. I'm still using CakePHP v.1 for large website and its perfectly fine.

      Just took a look at 'datamapper ORM' the first site for that keyword was:
      DataMapper - DataMapper "Ruby Object Relational Mapper"

      i though "Huh? codeignter is php, why the Ruby ORM....."

      so I searched a little more and found this one:
      DataMapper User Guide "Object Relational Mapper written in PHP"

      is the second link the one you mean?
