Basic Lightweight Frameworks From PHP Developer Community

Web development companies usually opt for open source frameworks, as they want to make the development process faster, more secure and efficient. However, a web developer who makes use of some of the major frameworks like Zend Framework, Ruby on Rails, and Grails, has to invest time in order to understand the particular approach embraced by each solution. It often happens, that they come across a large number of syntax and loops, which are not required in many of their development projects. Recognizing these shortcomings earlier, Rails community has started creating alternative solutions such as Camping and Sinatra, which utilized the framework approach, while minimizing the need for additional resource & time. These frameworks are referred as light framework, and they are capable of developing high-quality results, which would have otherwise been carried out through Rails. Presently, the PHP community has started utilizing these lightweight frameworks. And, lot many of these are fast gaining popularity among the members of the PHP development community. Here in this article, let us learn about five major lightweight frameworks.
