What is Laravel
The main thing you need to know about Laravel is that it is one of the best PHP frameworks.

But you need to understand that when choosing an IT solution for your business, you need to look not at what is fashionable, but at what will actually be convenient and profitable in your business project.
Although, Laravel also takes its place in the trends of IT solutions. Laravel is a framework that could be awarded the People’s Choice Award. Laravel is relatively young – the first version was released in 2011, but it has already managed to win the sympathy of developers and gather around itself a fairly large community of them.
Also in this graph, you can see the competitive ratio of requests of different frameworks, for example, the ratio of Yii to Laravel in Google Trends.
Main advantages of Laravel
Laravel actively uses Symfony components: they are partially rewritten or adapted, and partially patterns are used.
Unlike other frameworks, Laravel uses the latest PHP features
Laravel and Symfony have similar characteristics, which means they are designed to solve the same type of tasks. But Laravel on the contrary can offer a lot more.
In fact, Laravel is suitable for all types of applications for which PHP can be used. But its specificity should be attributed to the fact that compared to other PHP frameworks, it provides more opportunities for the implementation of backends for mobile applications.
This gives the business such basic and easy-to-understand benefits:
- Fast and effective development
- Strong security of data
- Faster market delivery time
- A vast amount of functionality
- Great Authentication
- MVC Architecture Pattern
- Enhanced Database Migration
- Great unit testing
- Route Caching
All that gives a wide range of possibilities to create a great digital product that users will definitely like.
