What is a good php mvc framework





ammonkc
What are the benefits of using a php mvc framework. I really want to tighten up the use of MVC in my php development, like when I do JSP programming. But I noticed that there are a lot of opensource php mvc frameworks out there. What are the advantages of using something like that over? how is it different from just keeping a strict separation of MVC in you code? Would it be beneficial to use somekind of mvc framework on small sites or would I only really see the benefits when developing very large web apps?
Any recomendations on a good framework to try out? What is a good php mvc framework that is pretty simple, lightweight no bloated, and easy to use?
Thanks,
Any comments on the subject would be appreciated.

See the series of design pattern articles by Alejandro Gervasio here:

try http://www.cakephp.org/ it has quite good 'learning curve' , allows you to test/see your app just after implemetnig model (and before writng V and C) , If you heard about ruby on rails you can think about this framework as kind of port of RoR's ideas.

It's really a good idea to write in MVC method, especially when your app isn't small or will grow.

if you learn the MVC ideas on small apps writng larger systems will be easier for you.

Whoa...I have just been checking out CodeIgnitor and it is
FABULOUS. Uses MVC, not as difficult to understand as CakePHP,
is FAST and FREE...

Thanks I'm going to check this one out. If the site that I'm working on isn't very large, would it be more feasable for me to just write my own MVC framework? Or would an opensource framework like this still be the best bet?

There are several PHP MVC Frameworks, the most used is the well know -of course- Struts, but Spring is a much stronger alternative Razz .
