Ask HN: Simple PHP and MySQL CRUD to base your next project on?

I have been looking for quite some time for a simple tool or framework that allows me to spin up a public web CRUD app with APIs, Google account auth, edit database & logic via web editor.

Preferrably based on PHP and MySQL. Is anyone aware such a tool or similar framework?

Go with Laravel framework. Great documentation, community, ecosystem, tutorials such as laracasts.com and tooling like forge for deployment. You can setup a CRUD application super fast. It also comes built in with vuejs frontend even though you can easily swap with another one like react etc. Go for it.

Pretty sure Laravel, Zend or Symphony can help with all that you're looking for.

Zend is now Laminas, just for clarification.

I did a fairly broad and deep investigation into PHP frameworks a number of years ago and the best framework I found was Yii[0]. It had scaffolding generators and was very well designed for both database and caching performance while still being relative easy to use. It even generates command-line tasks so you can use the framework for one-off or recurring jobs. There's a pretty big ecosystem now with many plugin style libraries.

Edit: TL;DR - it's made the way I would have made a framework which is a rare find.

CakePHP is awesome for that.
