PHP for Web based tools?

Is this a good framework to build on? I need some insights.

    Laravel tends to get a lot of love these days. It's opinionated (kind of like Ruby on Rails), but very good.

    For a more minimalist approach, Slim PHP is fantastic. It's more like ExpressJS in that it's basically just a router.

      Thanks Karl. ITs nerve-wracking having to choose something to build on and having no background in it.

      I have a robust prject and Im getting a lot of diff opnions.

        Any reason you're not building with a tool you already know?

        When trying to get a new project started quickly, this is usually a safer approach. That said, if you're just trying to learn something new that's okay too 馃憣

            Gotcha. Depending on what you're building I'd recommend building your MVP without code. There are a lot of good no-code website builders and tools out there. It'll be a lot faster to get market validation then once you know what you need to build you can write code.

            I am a developer and I never start a new project writing code. I always try to get at least a few dozen subscribers or possible buyers first.

              Thanks again, 鈥婯arl. Puts things into perspective.
