Symfony is probably the most popular PHP framework nowadays. We began with Symfony 2.6 and during 2019 we migrated to Symfony 4.2, also introducing #DDD and #hexagonal to our development process. Thanks to this improvements we could manage a quite big company with a small development team. If you agree, don't forget to upvote my review.

Thx

I really love Django because it is really fast to create a web application from scratch and it has a lot a facilities like the ORM or the Admin module ! The Python language is really easy to read and powerful, that's why I prefer Django over Symfony.

I use Django at work to make tools for the technicians but I also use it for me to build my personal website which I host on PythonAnywhere, and with a domain name bought on Namecheap.

Symfony
Node.js
and
Go

I'm about to begin working on an API, for which I plan to add GraphQL connectivity for processing data. The data processed will mainly be audio files being downloaded/uploaded with some user messaging & authentication.

I don't mind the difficulty in any service since I've used C++ (for data structures & algorithms at least) and would also say I am patient and can learn fairly quickly. My main concerns would be their performance, libraries/community, and job marketability.

Why I'm stuck between these three...

Symfony: I've programmed in PHP for back-end in a previous internship and may do so again in a few months.

Node.js: It's newer than PHP, and it's JavaScript where my front-end stack will be React and (likely) React Native.

Go: It's newer than PHP, I've heard of its good performance, and it would be nice to learn a new (growing) language.

Go with Node.js. There's something really satisfying about being able to use a single language across your entire tech stack. Especially once you integrate GraphQL, which is effectively JSON.

Your second best option is Go, but the ecosystem around Node.js is quite a bit stronger. This will play a big factor when you start building functionality like file management, messaging (especially in real-time), and authentication. The libraries and documentation are just stronger for Node.

Svelte
and
Nuxt.js

Thinking about how to set up simple websites in the future... I was specifically looking at something simple to develop in (coming from a Symfony/Laravel background but with some experience in Vue.js). Any recommendations?

Svelte

I too have a background in PHP, but found Svelte super easy to pick up. In many ways I found it similar to working in php with a template engine like Handlebars (it has syntax that is very similar to Handlebars). If you have experience with Laravel, you could also look at Vue.js, which works great with Laravel and might give you the best of both-worlds.

Nuxt.js

Hello Daniel, As someone who already knows Vue.js you will find Nuxt is powerful and gives you many options as you can use it to make a static site, SPA or SSR (universal) application. It is also very easy to get started with. It is a framework gaining lots of traction lately (over 1M downloads last month) so you can have confidence that it is worth trying. I developed my simple portfolio site with Nuxt and I had a lot of fun. In essence, I find it perfect for simple projects.
