Hello

I was wondering if I bought a simple html admin template like this one from themeforest
http://themeforest.net/item/appui-bootstrap-admin-web-app-template/8603616?WT.ac=category_thumb&WT.z_author=pixelcave

Can this be used with a framework system like Laravel or Symphony?

I've never used a framework before and I would like to start using one. However I'm not a great designer so I tend to buy templates for the design and dissect the template and add insert the bits of it that i need into my website. However I don't know whether I could still do this if I used a framework. I presume so as the templates are html/jquery

However I have seen this stack overflow question
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7758884/what-is-a-good-php-framework-for-migrating-an-existing-app-to

So perhaps it might be better not to use a framework?  

My interest in a framework is for performance gains and standardisation.

Thanks for your help

Yes, we can very well integrate any kind of template (either front-end or admin )  with any other framework. Only you need to have good understanding on the Framework you choose to work as well as the template  structures , folder, files, images etc.,  It matters how you're going to organize it with existing frameworks.

Usually, I too integrate lot of admin panel template with my CodeIgniter or YII, frameworks. No easy way, we need to understand both structures and just organize the way.

You may get standardization, but you will not get performance gains from using a framework.  Frameworks are generalized solutions and as such contain a necessary and unavoidable amount of overhead.

Given the choices, you probably want to start with Laravel.  It's very well respected among my more sophisticated colleagues.  Suggest you just put up a test site and see what you experience.  You would never want to deliver the first one to a client anyway, so take a week to practice and see what your results might be.
