Sitepoint has published the results of their 2015 PHP Framework popularity survey1. In that post they show that the survey gives a very large edge to Laravel. The people at Sitepoint were also nice enought to publish their properly anonymized dataset in a github repo2
So I went ahead, and forked their repo and fired up R to give this data a go.
