In the early 2000s, CakePHP was the first PHP MVC framework to hit the market. Then it was a revelation, and it is still one of the best PHP platforms you can use (and one of the most popular).
Newer versions of CakePHP have improved over time and added many new components. However, where CakePHP really shines is the coding approach. This means that with CakePHP, once you have mastered its set of conventions, you can focus on development and do more work faster.
Along with this, CakePHP offers a wonderful set of libraries that include many useful components (as it should be in any PHP environment). In our tests, we found that CakePHP offers one of the most comprehensive sets of components you can find, so this is a great option if you need to implement hard-to-reach features.
- Take advantage of a wide range of components
- Use CakePHP conventions for faster coding of projects
Of course, CakePHP may be a little limited because of its love of conventions. If you like to code and be as creative as possible, CakePHP may not be the best option for you. However, this is a good choice for many developers.
