I’ve been writing a lot about the Yii framework for Web development using PHP. I’m a big fan of it and expect I’ll be using it for some time to come. I recently came across DooPHP, which I think is also worth consideration (although I haven’t yet used it myself). Besides having a really sharp Web site, some of the strengths of DooPHP seem to be:
- GUI tools for auto-generating code
- Many types of caches for improved performance
- support for replicated databases (great for demanding sites)
- REST support
I don’t plan on changing frameworks for a while, as I’m quite pleased with Yii, but if you’re looking for a new PHP framework, you may want to consider DooPHP as well.
