Continuing the discussion from Feedback for DevsJob:
I would have to disagree with this. While all MVC frameworks all share ideas, there are huge differences in the way they approach problems.
There are also a lot of differences in how much they do for you. An example of this is the comparison between, say, Yii and CodeIgniter. Yii is very full on, with a lot of conventions and tools designed to make things easier for you, while CodeIgniter provides a very loose framework, and it’s up to you how you want to use it.
I’m also surprised at your thoughts on Laravel being faster to set up than Rails. I’ve very much found the opposite to this. Laravel deliberately leaves lots of gaps for you to fill in with whatever methodology you want to follow - which is great, but requires so much more set-up to get started.
The other thing I’ve found with Rails is that a lot of the gems just work. Throw them in the
bundle install, and go on your merry way. Not like Laravel which has a whole bunch of configuration which needs to be done on top.
Now I’m not talking about which is better, simpy which one lets you get something working quicker, and in my experience this is Rails.
