Does the Laminas project team have any statistics on how many applications are using the various Laminas frameworks (MVC, Api-Tools, Mezzio)?
Packagist shows over 9M+ installs of laminas-mvc, about 12K/week, but I figure that is counting how many times a composer out there is installing and updating laminas-mvc.
I am just curious to see how does Laminas compare to Laravel, Symfony and others in terms of unique installs.
Packagist is a good source, but you should also check some individual components.
Here are some examples:
Because Laminas is not only MVC, Mezzio or API-Tools, the components are important and used in different projects. Examples:
- Spiral Framework
- Kirby CMS
These are good points.
I am trying to evaluate the adoption of Laminas as a framework for websites with respect to others.
It would be nice if there was a way for Composer/Packagist to provide the number of unique installs or have people install a Google tag in their production websites to provide usage statistics.
or have people install a Google tag in their production websites to provide usage statistics.
Honestly, no: this is just a privacy nightmare
Packagist installs are already enough, and they don’t include CI environments.
I found this statement on kinsta.com/blog/php-frameworks. It was published January 2023.
The Zend Framework has had more than 570 million installations . It’s also the most used PHP framework by enterprises.
She is refering to Zend Framework but she also mentions that Laminas is the successor to it. I wonder how she calculated that statistics…
Got to include Xenforo in there as well
