CakePHP vs .NET: What are the differences?

CakePHP: The Rapid Development Framework for PHP. CakePHP makes building web applications simpler, faster, while requiring less code. A modern PHP 7 framework offering a flexible database access layer and a powerful scaffolding system; .NET: A free, cross-platform, open source developer platform for building many different types of applications. .NET is a general purpose development platform. With .NET, you can use multiple languages, editors, and libraries to build native applications for web, mobile, desktop, gaming, and IoT for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and more.

CakePHP and .NET can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Open source" is the primary reason why developers consider CakePHP over the competitors, whereas "Tight integration with visual studio" was stated as the key factor in picking .NET.

CakePHP and .NET are both open source tools. .NET with 11K GitHub stars and 2.37K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than CakePHP with 7.88K GitHub stars and 3.4K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, .NET has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1561 company stacks & 231 developers stacks; compared to CakePHP, which is listed in 66 company stacks and 27 developer stacks.

    Decisions about CakePHP and .NET
    .NET
    .NET

    I use .NET because now that it is cross platform it is a perfect choice for creating small containerised web api apps that can be used in a micro-services architecture.

    C# in particular is a very mature and feature rich general purpose language. Great to be able to pivot to a predominantly Linux platform and reuse our skills and investment in .NET
