2019 was the best year in Symfony history (read our 2019 review). We
celebrated more conferences than ever, we had more contributions than ever,
Symfony was downloaded more than ever, etc.
Here's another incredible milestone achieved by Symfony during the past year:
according to this independent report, in 2019, Symfony had more contributors
than any other backend framework, surpassing not only all PHP frameworks,
but all backend frameworks of all technologies:
The report only takes into account the commits of the master branch and it
excludes merge commits. Besides, while some frameworks use the same repository
for code and docs, Symfony has a different repository for the docs (and those
contributions are excluded from the report).
