Why would anyone want to use another PHP framework than Yii2? Give me some serious seasons if you have any. (If you really want/need the full DI deal just wait for v3, which I'm truly not convinced about)
I'm just thinking over and over again how I love Yii2! To me it's just impeccable! And fast! And I have built some quite serious stuff.
Of course there are some small inconveniences here and there, but ANY framework or system will have that. Usually with other systems I have used I can put a finger on this and that really annoying thing, but Yii2 is just perfect! So easy and logical to use, so easy to debug, so perfectly well-balanced in complexity versus clean and understandable code - and if it lacks anything, it's easy to enhance it! It's just such a joy to work with - I'm looking so much forward to it every time I need to do something in Yii2! I mean, what more do you want?! Even the documentation is awesome - something you can say of only a very few projects!
I have never come across something as elegant as Yii2 so I really have my doubts that Laravel or any other would be up to par... CakePHP certainly isn't. And when I tried Laravel back then I couldn't even get it to work out of the box.
Sorry, I just couldn't keep it in any longer!!
