Are there any prospects for PHP Phalcon framework?

One day I decided to Phalcon in action, loved the speed and the MVC model (like ZF's easy to change). But tormented by the question whether this framework the prospects in the future, especially given the ascent of HHVM? Are there today, in production projects written in Phalcon?

Phalcon is not lost/will lose prospects with the release of PHP 7. Rather, it will simply become faster.
I don't think PHP7 vs Phalcon in General is the place to be - here, rather, PHP7 with Phalcon:)
HHVM - is another question: it just doesn't ascend and descends.

HHVM and Phalcon largely lose their meaning after the release of PHP7

HHVM still ahead of PHP7 due to JIT - ova_Schoen52 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:03
: Well, with such a difference there, I'm too lazy busy with HHVM I will suffer a decline of 10% is not 120% - alva8 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:06
, test no, of course, has not conducted, and the comparison is very unfounded, but I think Phalcon+PHP7 is (when it is) faster HHVM (my personal opinion). - Rick_Pfannersti commented on July 9th 19 at 14:09

Phalcon has the advantage in speed due to the fact that his kernel is compiled in C-code.
but, he has quite a big minus - it is difficult enough to look at the source code and understand how it works.
At the moment the framework is written primarily in the language of Zephir who has a php-like syntax. In the source code on Github, you can figure out pretty quietly (knowing php at least).
So this "problem" is now irrelevant - this is my opinion. - ova_Schoen52 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:05
Let us say this : the urgency has decreased by 50%. Still can't go inside the debugger and see what it does there - alva8 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:08
hmm, I agree, you certainly are right. - Rick_Pfannersti commented on July 9th 19 at 14:11

I've been playing with php7.0.8-dev + Phalcon 2.1.x
At work we are actively developing projects using Phalcon.
I think that Phalcon is worth exploring, although I like Laravel.

And I have a question, maybe someone knows, if you switch from PHP5 to PHP7 how much % more nimble than the Phalcon to work, and how much % of Laravel ?

Well, it would be interesting to see the speed comparison between these frameworkof 5 PHP and PHP7.
I tried to migrate the project to ZF1 and Doctrine 1 for PHP7, the result is: memory and time in 2 times less - ova_Schoen52 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:07
Here benchmarking PHP frameworks - alva8 commented on July 9th 19 at 14:10
: slim its third line pleased. Just on it now a couple of projects to do.
Chose a couple of months ago between the lumen and slim, the choice fell on the slim. - Rick_Pfannersti commented on July 9th 19 at 14:13

HHVM after the release of PHP 7 is not needed. And about the prospects for better developers to ask. What are their plans?
