cakephp is really wonderful. docs are a lot better than they were in the past but there are still a lot of assumptions in there (assuming you know a, b, c, they explain how to do D). do the 'create a blog' tutorial in the cookbook and you'll be amazed.

I've not had a chance to really dig into code ignitor yet but I'm looking forward to it. Seems incredibly thoughtful.

Just a bump too, as I recently saw Code Ignitor mentioned in PC Pro, so thought I'd take a look. Took me a while to get my head around the 'Modules', 'Views' and 'Controllers' way of programming, as I've got so used to the event driven method of programming in Visual Basic.

The framework is pretty useful, with file uploads, login, database stuff, etc. The tutorials are also pretty thorough, with many blogs waffling on how good it is. The slight muddying of the waters is the different flavours of PHP floating around. Some sites show examples in one version, while others don't mention the version at all. My PHP is still a bit rusty to work out why code isn't working properly.

Hi All,

Well for me it is CodeIgniter. I started using it in middle of last year and have now finished 2 major projects with it. It is very simple to learn and the documentation is very easy to follow.

Also the support base has been fantastic so far.

The MVC pattern took me a little whie to get comfortable with, but now I actually can't think of doing a project any other way. Though it is important to understand your needs before you start, as not every project will require this method or even a framework. But for the projects that do, I really enjoy using this framework.

Anyway, that's my ten penneths worth, though I am sure there are many other great frameworks out there.

Mike

I was new to PHP as of about a year ago... didn't yet know what I didn't know. Not that I've become an expert, but I've been programming with more than 20 languages for the past 30 years. I invested a lot of effort into evaluating several frameworks, the name of most of them I've forgotten. But, I do remember trying CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Zend Framework, QCodo, and QCubed.

I found most of them to be very powerful, but none were perfect. However, I stumbled upon QCubed, which is a branch of QCodo. At first, it seemed like QCubed was just QCodo with a different logo. However, as I used it more and participated in their forums, I began to realize it was in the process of evolving to be much different from QCodo. I was actually writing part of the new system I needed in the various frameworks and I discovered I was so comfortable with QCubed, I just kept right on developing. Anyway, since I began using it last October, the framework has evolved to a completely new release. About the only thing it has in common with QCodo now is the API. Everything underneath has been rewritten and upgraded. For example, all javascript functions now us jQuery and yet you can still use other javascript frameworks, without breaking anything.

Beyond the intuitive nature of QCubed and its included DOM (no need to install a separate one, although you can), QCubed not only makes development rapid, but the end result has incredibly good performance. Also, it doesn't hurt that there is a dedicated and growing user community and some of the most savvy core contributors on the planet. I remember, what may have been dumb questions on the forums of other frameworks, I usually got some flippant response that let me know my lack of experience was not very much appreciated. The folks on the QCubed forums seem to be the antithesis to the others. Really nice and helpful folks... everyone participates, not just the core developers.

So, if you find yourself looking for a good framework, I suggest you at least give QCubed a look.
