Kohana vs Spring: What are the differences?

Developers describe Kohana as "An elegant HMVC PHP5 framework". Kohana is an elegant, open source, and object oriented HMVC framework built using PHP5, by a team of volunteers. It aims to be swift, secure, and small. On the other hand, Spring is detailed as "Provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications". A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.

Kohana and Spring belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Open source" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Kohana, while over 192 developers mention "Java" as the leading cause for choosing Spring.

Kohana and Spring are both open source tools. It seems that Spring with 30.6K GitHub stars and 19.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Kohana with 1.61K GitHub stars and 464 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Spring has a broader approval, being mentioned in 319 company stacks & 184 developers stacks; compared to Kohana, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

    Spring is another gift rained down by the gods of Open Source Software (a.k.a. Pivotal Labs in this particular case) that just makes sense on all levels.

    From Spring Boot, to SpringMVC, the configuration architecture & profile paradigm, Spring Cloud expandability, to the ease with which one can deploy Spring applets as microservices within Docker is an absolute joy.
