PHP supports a wide range of frameworks that make web development easier and more efficient for developers. Here are some good reasons why PHP developers must use a framework. 


PHP powers more than 81 per cent of the active websites on the internet and one of the key reasons for the immense popularity of PHP, apart from its open-source nature, high flexibility, scalability, documentation, security, and a strong community is the support for a wide range of frameworks that make web development an efficient and effortless task for the PHP developers. Some of the well-known PHP frameworks are Symfony, Laravel, Yii, CakePHP, and CodeIgniter. In fact, working in a team becomes a lot easier with these well-designed frameworks. 


Here are some key reasons why developers must use these frameworks when building a website or web application with PHP. 


Rapid web development:

No matter you are building a small, medium or large scale website or web application, using a PHP framework can always make your work effortless and efficient. Frameworks are well-designed structures or layout that comes with features and functionalities that ensure to reduce a lot of time and effort of the developers for coding, designing, and developing a web project. With these frameworks, developers can code and build a website much faster as compared to writing custom codes right from scratch. These frameworks have in-built functions, libraries, classes, and methods that also make things simpler for the programmers. 


Quality coding standard and easier code maintenance:

Another benefit of using a PHP framework is that it helps to maintain the coding standard. Coding involves the use of programming languages, programming styles, methods, and practices. With the use of a PHP framework, developers will always have to write fewer codes, and because of the structure and design of the frameworks, they can always maintain quality coding practices and styles. And this also makes it easier to maintain the codes as the codes are written in an organised way. 


PHP frameworks support the MVC pattern:

The MVC structure helps to keep the codes organised and easy to maintain. Not only writing the codes but maintaining the database queries is also easy with this MVC architecture. The PHP frameworks support this Model-View-Controller architecture, which is again a reason why developers must use these instead of writing custom codes in PHP. 


Ensures high security to the websites and web apps:

All the PHP frameworks come with in-built security features and tools that ensure to protect the websites or web applications from all external threats, hacking, and malware. This is another major advantage of using a PHP framework. 


Ensures better teamwork:

As these frameworks support the MVC structure, working in a team together simultaneously on a single project becomes easier and more efficient. Multiple team members can work together on separate files and parts of the same project without interfering with each other’s codes or files. This again ensures faster and efficient web development. 


All these are the major benefits of using PHP frameworks. Writing custom PHP codes or executing custom PHP development can be a time-taking process and may need much more effort while using these frameworks can make things simpler for the developers, reducing both the time and effort required to complete a PHP project.
