Trendy PHP Frameworks on Git repositories 2013 ( 76 )



Well, it seems that, the most used php framework is CodeIgniter, if we take a look on and repository results.
It is maybe, because CodeIgniter is more accessible, not so complex as installation or configuration, also compatible with old php versions and more flexible like other Frameworks.
Judging about Starring level, which is kind of booking, Symfony gets the big prize but on Fork Top CodeIgniter remains top One.
One other interesting fact is that mostly all repositories are going to slowdown, analysing by number of Contributors displayed on Graphs. By Commits some Graphs are showing an almost dead activity on Kohana and Lithium.
Code frequency which is Additions and Deletions per week, shows that Symfony is the most active project from all. Almost with no exception punch card Graph shows that coders are doing commits on a day light, activity starts at 3am and is increased reaching peaks at 11pm/12am midnight.
