Good PHP Framework / IDE - Development under Windows
Posted on 2005-05-07
I need to know a good PHP Framework and the Pros and Cons to it froms somebody who has real hands on experience.
Here is a little background:
In the beginning I had a tiny homepage and it was pure HTML edited with old Allaire Homesite. Little later I went to PHP because my hosting provider had this as an option. I edited PHP and hoped it worked. That was only to have a form processed I provided on the page. Later I installed Java Eclipse and PHP Eclipse which works good enough for me. Now I need to restructure my whole page, make it multi language and be able to easily change it.
For a little while I thought of going on ASP.NET as it is very comfortable and I am pretty familiar with C#,VB. But somehow finally I want to stick to PHP also because I read some convincing arguments on security issues ASP.NET has.
I am looking for something
- EASY to LEARN
- Kind of "Drag & Drop" like in ASP.NET to design the page
- The generated PHP / HTML Code still under my control (I know what it does)
- Should be cheap however I do not want to have any licensing issue because I use it for a commercial page
