  • It’s very robust, well tested and very widely used.
  • One of the oldest and most trusted frameworks of PHP
  • Has all the features that a good Web Framework should have
  • Loosely coupled use-at-will architecture. This means that you can pick and choose components as you need them without using the full packaged library
  • Too much bloatware.
  • It’s really slow compared to other frameworks like Laravel.
  • Documentation is pretty bad. For a newbie, it’s really hard to understand how things work.
