PHP 5.6 Vs PHP 7 – Performance Benchmarks With Laravel 5
Jun 16, 2017 @ 11:56:59

The CloudWays blog has posted an article sharing the results from some benchmarking they've done comparing Laravel 5 on PHP 5.6 versus PHP 7.

Laravel is rapidly becoming a popular choice for PHP projects. The framework has established its reputation after the release of version 5.x. In the same vein, PHP recently received a major update in the form of PHP 7.1.x.

It is an established fact that Laravel has a solid codebase and provides optimized performance for all lightweight and enterprise level applications. However no statistics about Laravel 5 benchmarks and its performance with PHP 5.6 and PHP 7 are widely available.

Using the Blitz testing tool and sample Laravel applications managed through CloudWays (on DigitalOcean), they benchmarked mean response times and the "hit rate" of the requested pages. Graphs are included of the results for both PHP 5.6 and PHP 7 and the post ends with a comparison of the results from the two scenarios with PHP 7 coming out on top.

PHP Templating Celebrity Deathmatch!
Aug 14, 2007 @ 15:37:50

The Code Lemur blog (as penned by Rob Peck) has a new post - a "deathmatch" for two of the PHP-associated templating solutions out there in a fight to the finish - Smarty and Blitz.

In this test, I am going to be comparing Smarty (the most widely used PHP templating engine and an official PHP project), Blitz (a new templating engine currently under very active development that is native compiled as a PHP extension), and standard PHP includes.

He compares them on three different levels - instantiation, simple template rendering, and complex testing. Each time, there's a victor but in the end, there's really only one "winner" - the PHP language itself that does a great job of templating things easily without the overhead of adding in external libraries.

PHP Template tests (and Blitz)

Brian Moon points out a simple PHP templating application shown to him - Blitz:

A coworker of mine found out about a project called Blitz. its a PHP extension that does templating. It will of course have one advantage over Smarty. Smarty is slow as its all written in PHP. PHP is slower than C and always will be. Its just life.

Tests were even done to compare it to several of the other popular templating frameworks currently offered.
