CodeIgniter is a rapid web application development framework with a ridiculously small size. CodeIgniter 4, the latest version of CodeIgniter, is a mere 1.2 MB in size. Like Laravel, it’s open-source and boasts 18k+ stars on GitHub. Just because of how bare-bone it is, we have included it in the second position. Like several other frameworks, CodeIgniter provides a set of libraries and an intuitive interface to accelerate PHP web app development. Currently, this is not tracked by but is considered among the best PHP frameworks for website development.
