Lumen vs PHP-MVC: What are the differences?

Lumen: The stunningly fast PHP micro-framework by Laravel. Laravel Lumen is a stunningly fast PHP micro-framework for building web applications with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Lumen attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as routing, database abstraction, queueing, and caching; PHP-MVC: Simple and easy to understand MVC skeleton application. This project is - by intention - NOT a full framework, it's a bare-bone structure, written in purely native PHP ! The php-mvc skeleton tries to be the extremely slimmed down opposite of big frameworks like Zend2, Symfony or Laravel.

Lumen and PHP-MVC are primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.

Lumen and PHP-MVC are both open source tools. It seems that Lumen with 6.31K GitHub stars and 836 forks on GitHub has more adoption than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Lumen has a broader approval, being mentioned in 34 company stacks & 25 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

        I'm about to start a new project to build a REST API, and I got to this point: Yii2 Vs Lumen Vs Slim, I used Yii 1.1 a while a go and it was awesome, really easy to work with, as a developer you don't have to worry about almost anything, just setup the framework, get your php extensions, and start coding your app.

        But, I was told about performance and someone recomended Lumen or Slim to work with a micro framework and a less bloated framework, what worries me is the lack of advantages that Yii2 offers, ACF and RBAC as a native tool on the framework, gii, the model validations and all the security props already in it.

        Is it worth it? Is the performance so great on those frameworks to leave aside the advantages of a framework like Yii2?

        How do you suggest to make the test to prove wich one is better?

        Of all PHP frameworks, my best and only choice is Yii . Think of this: you have a MySQL database, it contains several tables. Now you want to setup a PHP-MVC site, firstly, you must create Models, Yii have a very handy tool called Gii, you can easily create model with Gii just by one click, Gii will read your database table columns and create PHP models automatically for you. Now you need Controller, still with Gii, it will automatically create all 4 php files for you with Insert/Delete/Update/Select even with Search function.

        Well, now the most modern way is to have a RESTful API, that's even easier with Yii, you even don't need to care about all the columns, just 4 lines of code you can expose your database table as RESTful API with all GET/POST/PUT/DELETE support, even you change your database table columns, you don't need to change any PHP code.

        For security, Yii have embedded authentication and RBAC support. For multi language, Yii have embedded i18n support, all with out-of-box. Just play with it, I bet you will love it.

        First our BE was pure PHP, then it evolved to Laravel and now we are on Lumen. Superb.
