Over the past year, I have tried many different frameworks for many languages like — Ruby on Rails, Spring, Symphony, Yii2, Laravel and many more. Each framework have their own features and capibilities, used during the development of application. When I came accross Laravel (A PHP framework), fell in love instantly with how easy it was to get started with it. However, I still love to use Rails for some other project, if PHP is not being used.
Here are some of the reasones that I would suggest giving Laravel a try and why I will never go back to another PHP framework.
Before Starting real story about Laravel, What is Framework?
In general, a framework is a real or conceptual structure intended to serve as a support or guide for the building of something that expands the structure into something useful.
“In computer programming, a software framework is an abstraction in which software providing generic functionality can be selectively changed by additional user-written code, thus providing application-specific software.” — Wikipedia
In Easy way, A framework is the structure that you can choose to build your program on. It can allow you to connect to many different API’s as well as determine the structure of your own application.
A Software frmework does several things:
It makes it easier to work with complexity
Write clean and resuable Code which help to devlop project smoothly
It forces the team to implement code in a way that promotes consistent coding, fewer bugs, and more flexible applications
Made Testing and Debugging of code more easily
A web framework (WF) or web application framework (WAF) is a software framework that is designed to support the development of web applications including web services, web resources and web APIs. Web frameworks aim to alleviate the overhead associated with common activities performed in web development.
A PHP Framework is a collection of classes which help you develop a web application easier. What is Laravel?
Laravel is one of the highly used, open-source modern web application framework that designs customized web applications quickly and easily.
Developers prefer Laravel over to other frameworks because of the performance, features, scalability it offer. It follows Model View Controller (MVC) which makes it more useful than PHP.
It attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions and caching. It has a unique architecture, where it is possible for developers to create their own infrastructure that is specifically designed for their application.
Laravel is used not only for big project but also best to use for small project.
