By the end of 2017, 25 of 30 PHP developers in my technology firm switched from various other PHP frameworks: CodeIgniter, Yii, Zend, etc. to Laravel. This switch piqued my interest in Laravel and made me curious about this framework for php development.
I decided to dig further only to find it isn’t just my firm everybody is making the switch.
Google Trends is a clear indicator of the web searches made about PHP frameworks in the last 12 months. Laravel is way ahead of Yii, Zend and CodeIgniter
Even if we look at geographical distribution, Laravel is the most searched about PHP frameworks around, except for a few instances of CodeIgniter and Symfony here and there.
