I'd probably get laughed at for even mentioning "php"..

But what is the best framwork for getting started with PHP to build some complex site?

I have seen some here talking good about either codeignitor or laravel. Not sure.

    https://devrant.com/rants/1540018/... this post might help

    In php there are basically 2 good choices: laravel and symfony, everything else is shit (maybe except phalcon). So from those two, I would recommend symfony. It might be harder at the beginning, and could take longer to build site, but in the end you will be following better code and scalability practices (because symfony is very serious about it). On the other hand, if you don’t care about it and want to become another php developer everyone laughs and rant from, then laravel is good enough to go. It’s easy to learn and use, has a lot of packages for almost everything and many tutorials...

    @gintko I personally think laravels scalability is about the same i not better than symphonies.

    Code quality is really about the developer and not the framework.

    The routing system of laravel is one of the things that makes things a bit more scalable in my opinion.

    @gintko @Codex404 Keep in mind laravel uses parts of symfony!

    @RicoNijeboer indeed, but the way the framework works is different.

    Laravel 1 was basically a copy of symphony. With each version they slowly abandon symphony features and replacing them with its own.

    Ive read 80% of laravels source (few versions ago), and almost all functionality is behind the scenes going to symphony code but with extra features or more complete features. Where symphony pluralizer has a big list of exceptions laravel adds a few regularly used ones to it.

    Fat free framework or Laravel.

    Buuuuuut beware. Underneath the nice expressive and consistent Laravel API lies Symfony. Which is a behemot of a framework(Java Spring level)

    So gotta watch out for that shit.

    I'd say Laravel. It's also quite beginner friendly

    I'm liking laravel. Haven't got stuck with any issues so far. I guess it's a good start I'm following a pluralsight course on it.

    I'd say Laravel, and mention PhalconPHP
