Should Craft CMS use Yii3 or Laravel?

Oct. 19, 2020, 4 a.m. (3 years, 4 months ago)

On this episode we have a round table discussion with a cadre of Craft CMS developers to discuss whether a future version of Craft CMS should use Yii3 or Laravel.

We talk about the relative merits of both staying the course with Yii3 and joining the legions in Laravel-land… with a wildcard thrown in of potentially just leveraging Symfony directly.

We launch into a discussion about the relative importance of the technical abilities of a framework compared to human factors like the size and momentum of the communities.

Join us for a heady discussion on the underpinnings of Craft CMS.
