I didn't know these libs and it sounds great.
I know that thephpleague do a great job for PHP.
Regarding the ORM, I don't use it and I prefer building the SQL queries by myself. I use a mapper layer for that which is responsible for the DTO stuff. When several tables are required, I just use a JOIN statement.
It's not ideal but even with ORM, I don't see any clean way to do that.
The problem is with REST. I have to give a chance to GraphQL 😉
