PHP-MVC vs Yii: What are the differences?

Developers describe PHP-MVC 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. On the other hand, Yii is detailed 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.

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

PHP-MVC and Yii are both open source tools. Yii with 4.86K GitHub stars and 2.22K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.

180vita, Utrip, and FreshMail are some of the popular companies that use Yii, whereas PHP-MVC is used by BetRocket, Sequoia Waste Solutions, and Digimedia ENVISION. Yii has a broader approval, being mentioned in 58 company stacks & 32 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.
