    Laravel is a free, open-source PHP web framework intended to develop web applications following the model–view–controller(MVC) architectural pattern. Laravel is used mainly for full-stack web development.

    Could you care to elaborate on the "CI3 is dangerously out of date" statement? What exactly makes it dangerous? The last version (3.1.11) was released in 2019, and until version 4.1 a few months ago, CI3 was still the current stable version.

  7. A fast, lightweight, community driven PHP5 framework

  8. Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP

    PHP Framework for web development with pros and cons about 4 months ago:

    Phalcon is a bit of an oddity when it comes to PHP frameworks. Its source code is written in C, so it’s basically a C extension of PHP. When it comes to performance, Phalcon lives up to its name, and it consistently delivers results that are near the top of the pack. Phalcon is also very light on resources, and it uses an MVC architecture.
  9. Slim is a PHP micro framework that helps you quickly write simple yet powerful web applications and APIs.

    Is there a way to use Ruby in HTML code, similar to PHP? about 21 days ago:

    Aside from that there’s other Ruby template systems like Shopify’s liquid, slim & haml (but you need to use it as an engine for use outside of Rails).
  10. PHPixie is a modern component-based PHP 7 framework.
