Top 10 php Frameworks MVC in 2017

Voordat u begint met de lijst van de top 10 PHP frameworks in 2017 : PHP is een van de meest favoriete programmeer talen en staat bekend om zijn eenvoud, PHP frameworks zijn een aanvulling op PHP. MVC frames kunnen de ontwikkeling versnellen en componenten zijn herbruikbaar, waardoor er een snellere ontwikkelingscycli kan ontstaan in webprojecten.
Hieronder een vergelijking, gedaan via Google Trends. Aanvullend een cirkel diagram die in het kort de populairste Php frameworks in beeld zet :

Wat is MVC

Model-view-controller (of MVC) is een ontwerppatroon ("design pattern") dat het ontwerp van complexe toepassingen opdeelt in drie eenheden met verschillende verantwoordelijkheden: datamodel (model), datapresentatie (view) en applicatielogica (controller). Het scheiden van deze verantwoordelijkheden bevordert de leesbaarheid en herbruikbaarheid van code. Het maakt ook dat bijvoorbeeld veranderingen in de gebruikersinterface niet direct invloed hebben op het datamodel en vice versa. MVC werd voor het eerst gebruikt in de eerste implementaties van Smalltalk.

Website :

Voordelen :
