Laravel: Laravel is a brilliant PHP Framework that has many interesting features that include RESTful routing, native PHP, light weight tempting engine and so much more. Several Symfony components have gone into building Laravel.

Magento: Magento is an ecommerce platform built on open source technology which provides online merchants with a flexible shopping cart system, as well as control over the look, content and functionality of their online store. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools. An eCommerce platform comes with lots of inbuilt features so you just need to install it and can start your online store.

Codeigniter: Codeigniter is php framework. CodeIgniter is a powerful PHP framework with a very small footprint, built for developers who need a simple and elegant toolkit to create full-featured web applications.

Magento is specifically an eCommerce CMS system while Codeigniter is a complete PHP framework.

Each of the frameworks has its own benefits and consequences. Thing is, the choice of any framework depends on your set of requirements.

If you need a tremendously modular and well-supported framework, choose framework called Symfony, but If ease of use and fast prototyping is your prime consideration, go with Laravel, and If you want something in-between, pick CodeIgniter. So, before you choose a framework evaluate your requirements thoroughly.

Working, learning and setting up a CodeIgniter PHP framework are pretty easy. Though we require PHP framework that is modern with a lot more flexibility in terms of a structured coding pattern with scope for applications. Due to which we switch over to Laravel. The security feature of Laravel makes it more effective than CodeIgniter.

Features that Laravel has when compared to CodeIgniter are ORM, Inbuilt user oath, Template engine, Inbuilt CLI support, and Log management.

As Magneto is specifically an eCommerce CMS system while codeIgniter and Laravel are for complete PHP framework. Hence I would say Laravel is the best framework when compared with other two.
