I took a long time looking at backend languages and decided on PHP since it is very "C" like. Then I found CodeIgniter and I liked the idea of using MVC. Newby Alert: I have not coded even single CI section yet. Then I found Grocery Crud and thought to myself, "this could make things much easier". I have also looked at Bootstrap and thought "hey it would be really cool to use one of their THEMES" like the one with the tabs and put each one of those 3 grids on a different tab. Most of those Grids will just be a single column that a user can maintain. When the user logs off, I need to do some string manipulation and build a string and store it in the database.
So the question is, since I am not married to any particular framework which should I use? Which fits best with my goals below? I like the idea of Grocery Crud Enterprise allowing for the use of any framework. My goals are 1) ease of learning 2) professional looking UI 3) easy integration with Enterprise Groc CRUD 4) support for a picklist.
