Laravel is a web framework with expressive and elegant syntax. It is a MVC framework with bundles, migrations, and Artisan CLI. A web framework provides you with a programming infrastructure for all your applications, so that the codes written should be clean and maintainable without having to reinvent the wheel.
Laravel framework provides a large set of tools and an application architecture which is incorporated with some of the important features of frameworks like Yii, Sinatra, CodeIgniter and others. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling and Laravel reduces the pain out of development by easing common tasks such as routing, multiple back-ends for session and cache storage, robust background job processing, database agnostic schema migrations and real-time event broadcasting.
Being an Open Source framework, it has a wide set of features that boosts the speed of Web Development. If you are familiar with Core PHP and Advanced PHP, Laravel makes it much easier for you, saving a lot time if you are developing a website from scratch. Not just that, the website built in Laravel is secure as well as it prevents the various attacks that can take place on the website. Based on Eloquent ORM, Laravel can be used with PostgreSQL and MySQL, and in both cases it performs flawlessly.
The key features offered by Laravel are:
- Query builder and ORM (Object Relational Mapper)
- Schema builder, migrations, and seeding
- Configuration management
- Template engine
Earlier, with the old approach, it was expected from the back-end developers to know much more about the UI and visual aspects of the application. Because of which, they had to pay more attention to different segments of the application, rather than focusing on their primary objective.
Having a strictly separated back-end API from the UI, allowed the developers to focus on the quality of their code. Laravel framework is easily accessible, powerful and provides tools required for large and robust applications. It caters a superb combination of simplicity, elegance, and innovation needed to build any application.
The Routing in Laravel is amazing and is very similar to the Ruby on Rails implementation, which is liked by programmers a lot. The routes can be easily grouped, resources for CRUD pages can be created, filters can be attached and the models can be automatically bound to the request parameters.
Laravel is a promising framework and we believe it will be around for years to come. So, just stay tuned!
