Top 23 PHP Framework Projects
A PHP framework for web artisans.Project mention: Absolute idiot beginner. Want to build something | reddit.com/r/CodingHelp | 2021-04-13
Reading this, my advice would be to take a look at Laravel. It’s a PHP framework with very, very beginner friendly documentation and a huge community. It’s extremely popular with web developers who are starting out, so you’ll find every conceivable question has been asked online when people get stuck— making it easy for you to Google any problems you face as you’re learning. Aside from the beginner friendliness, it makes it very easy to implement a lot of what you’re going to need for your project; user authentication, database interactions and receiving/handling/returning HTTP requests.

Slim is a PHP micro framework that helps you quickly write simple yet powerful web applications and APIs.Project mention: PHP routing library for fast API development | dev.to | 2021-04-09
At my day job we needed to develop an API and I've never really tried to build one using vanilla PHP, but instead used frameworks such as CodeIgniter or Slim or just a simple file that would mimic the functionality of an API but not be a proper one. Also we had a requirement that we needed to have full control over the code so we were not supposed to use any of the pre built solutions because of that requirement.
Free, open-source, self-hosted CMS platform based on the Laravel PHP Framework.Project mention: Ask HN: Your experience of using an alternative to WordPress? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-09
WordPress elicits strong opinions among developers. Whatever your thoughts about WordPress, it remains the leading website builder among the myriad site builders available.
Uniquely (I think) it is the only self-hosting option which is relatively simple for non-technical users to install via one-click installers (available via hundreds of hosting companies).
What are the alternative website builders (self-hostable) that match or exceed WordPress in terms of core features? In particular, alternatives with modern codebases, with customisation, and a GUI WYSIWYG (not markdown)?
Some example, modern alternatives I'm aware of:
- October CMS (PHP, Open Source) https://octobercms.com/
- Craft CMS (PHP, Paid) https://craftcms.com/
- Kirby CMS (PHP, Paid) https://getkirby.com/
- Wagtail CMS (Python, Open Source) https://wagtail.io/
Have you used any of the above (or any other) as an alternative to WordPress? What was your experience like? And has anyone gone back to WordPress after trying an alternative? Thanks

Official repository for concrete5 developmentProject mention: Ask HN: What is the best UI builder that you have ever used? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-21
https://www.concrete5.org/ was way ahead at least when I tried it years ago.
It allowed for in-place editing and as a dev I could easily add more custom elements/blocks to be dropped and configured.

Ubiquity frameworkProject mention: news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-08
Normally I just click on Fortune Cookies, since I think that is the most representative of a typical Web Workload.
And then Click on Filter, Full Stack Framework, And Full ORM only. Again, most people will be using some sort of Web Framework with Full ORM.
I am surprised the top results is from PHP. For many years it has always been Java. And it is from a framework called ubiquity  which I have never heard of it before.
