Developers describe Yii as "A high-performance PHP framework best for developing Web 2.0 applications". Yii comes with: MVC, DAO/ActiveRecord, I18N/L10N, caching, authentication and role-based access control, scaffolding, testing, etc. It can reduce your development time significantly. On the other hand, OpenFL is detailed as "*Build games and applications for almost every platform imaginable *". It enables creative expression for the desktop, mobile and web. Enterprise applications and best-selling games are made with it, publishing native, Flash and HTML5 applications using one seamless toolset.
