Start up web 2.0 Blog:
CakePHP & CodeIgniter Benchmark
Dec 08, 2006 @ 09:15:00

On the "start up web 2.0" blog today, there's a set of benchmarks comparing two popular PHP frameworks - CakePHP and CodeIgniter - and how the fare in the standard "Hello World" sort of test.

After reading How fast is your framework I was rather intrigued to compare CakePHP and CodeIgniter. [...] Each framework is required to have the output "HelloWorld!" produced from a view and a controllers will obviously have to be created.

He ran the tests with the Apache benchmark tool (ab) and the simple code he provides with the results leaning towards CodeIgniter (by a good bit). Overall, it had a faster response time than CakePHP by about half.

Check out his results and grab the code and run it for yourself - see what kind of results you get and how they compare.
