PHP-MVC vs Revel: What are the differences?
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; Revel: A high productivity, full-stack web framework for the Go language. Revel makes it easy to build web applications using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern by relying on conventions that require a certain structure in your application. In return, it is very light on configuration and enables an extremely fast development cycle.
PHP-MVC and Revel can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
PHP-MVC and Revel are both open source tools. It seems that Revel with 11.2K GitHub stars and 1.33K forks on GitHub has more adoption than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
BetRocket, Digimedia ENVISION, and Scaffolder are some of the popular companies that use PHP-MVC, whereas Revel is used by RetargetApp, Alibre, and Jackpot Rising.

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.
