Laravel vs Phalcon: What are the differences?

Developers describe Laravel as "A PHP Framework For Web Artisans". Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching. On the other hand, Phalcon is detailed as "Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP". Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.

Laravel and Phalcon can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Clean architecture" is the top reason why over 420 developers like Laravel, while over 57 developers mention "Fast" as the leading cause for choosing Phalcon.

Laravel and Phalcon are both open source tools. Laravel with 53.4K GitHub stars and 16.4K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Phalcon with 9.74K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks.

9GAG, PedidosYa, and Swat.io are some of the popular companies that use Laravel, whereas Phalcon is used by Sellsuki, Learning Data, and Ringostat. Laravel has a broader approval, being mentioned in 831 company stacks & 773 developers stacks; compared to Phalcon, which is listed in 28 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

Reviews of Laravel and Phalcon
Review ofLaravelLaravel

I moved from .NET and Rails to Laravel, and since then never thought to go back. I feel Laravel framework has the capability to overcome all modern frameworks.

At Soft Pyramid we are developing rich business applications using Laravel Framework, and never feel any limitation even for complex reporting.We have written REST apis, complex ERP solutions and found awsome in all areas.

I think precompiled PHP is the way to go. It saves CPU cycles, RAM and overall I/O. It saves money too. Smaller requirements = smaller bills.

I've tried symfony and zend. Phalcon was easiest to use.

The best PHP framework right now, intuitive and growing up quickly.

We use Laravel in the outer layer of our Clean Architecture codebases, whereby the domain model does not rely on the framework as a whole.

See "PHP", I don't really choose to use it, but I can step in and operate in Laravel when necessary. Same goes for quite a few other PHP frameworks, including my own full-featured proprietary stack.

Laravel is the PHP framework we use. It speeds up development and simplifies a lot of PHP. Complicated at first but saves time once you're comfortable with it.
