Phalcon vs PHP-MVC: What are the differences?

Developers describe Phalcon 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. On the other hand, PHP-MVC is detailed as "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.

Phalcon and PHP-MVC can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Phalcon and PHP-MVC are both open source tools. Phalcon with 9.74K GitHub stars and 1.78K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Phalcon has a broader approval, being mentioned in 28 company stacks & 15 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

      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.

      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.
