PHP-MVC vs Symfony: 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; Symfony: A PHP full-stack web framework. Symfony is written with speed and flexibility in mind. It allows developers to build better and easy to maintain websites with PHP. Symfony can be used to develop all kind of websites, from your personal blog to high traffic ones like Dailymotion or Yahoo! Answers.
PHP-MVC and Symfony can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
PHP-MVC and Symfony are both open source tools. It seems that Symfony with 21.1K GitHub stars and 7.01K forks on GitHub has more adoption than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Symfony has a broader approval, being mentioned in 374 company stacks & 277 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.
