I've got a major project upcoming and it is beyond the capacity of my own framework to scale to within a reasonable time frame. So pitch me your favorite framework. The leading contenders in my mind at this point are ZF2, Cake and CodeIgniter. Here are the requirements.

  • PHP 5.4 compatible, preferably able to allow traits to be deployed.
  • Must have unit testing ability, preferably with PHP Unit.
  • Must not have configuration files so god-awful complex they constitute their own programming language.
