Bootstrap

I use both of these regularly. If you're going to have to use Bootstrap due to your js dependencies, stick with Bootstrap. I actually prefer Tailwind, but trying to use both of them and make them "play nice" feels like making things more complex with no real benefit.

EDIT: Sorry for the late response, I just noticed how old this is. StackShare sent me this in an email for some reason so I assumed it was relatively fresh.

Vue Native

Vue Native is definitely production-ready in my experience. I've used both, have apps built with both in production right now, and both are fine technologies. As far as I can recall, there's nothing in RN that you can't do in VN. Given that, I would say go with "the devil you know".

That said, the one downside of VN over RN is that there are a lot more people using RN last I checked, so there are likely more resources readily available.

Thanks a lot Barry. Surely there are tons more stuff on ReactNative over VN. Super useful. The thing is that i don't deeply understand those technologies to have a full picture. I'm on it in these days though.

Yeah, and that's why I say go with what you know, but don't let that stop you if you would rather use React. I don't find the concepts behind Vue and React to be all that different which makes the transition between the two fairly simple.

Laravel

The answer sort of depends, but for most projects Laravel is a perfect fit. With Symfony, you typically have to do more of the heavy-lifting yourself which is useful if you need that level of control, but in most cases it is unnecessary. Django is fine, but since you're coming from CodeIgniter you already know PHP and I don't see the need in learning a new language and a new framework simultaneously.
