I'm not a Ruby developer. Never used Ruby on Rails. I am a PHP developer though and have used frameworks for years. I used to enjoy CodeIgniter, but then switched to Laravel which is a better Framework imho. But, I've recently learnt that Laravel is heavily influenced by RoR (as is Symfony). I've read a number of posts claiming RoR is much quicker when comparisons between frameworks has been done. I'm very tempted to try RoR but wanted to hear from other developers on their justification for using a PHP Framework over RoR. I also heard that the Ruby language is much more Object Orientated than PHP, but having no experience with Ruby I wouldn't know. Look forward to some replies.
