Why Laravel is the best PHP framework?

PHP is amongst the most popular and oldest web development languages. There are many frameworks in PHP among which Laravel is the most popular framework.


Laravel framework is developed and currently maintained by Taylor Otwell. It is an open-source PHP framework. The architectural patterns are mostly based on Symfony. It is an advanced and better alternative to the other PHP frameworks. It is a robust PHP framework and gives developers a range of varied tools to develop a seamless robust application.

Its first stable version was released in June 2011. Currently, its latest version is Laravel 6.0

Why Laravel is best?

There are several that makes Laravel exceptional and best for web development. In this article, we have listed the features which makes Laravel gaining so much popularity.

  1. MVC Support and Object-Oriented Approach:

Laravel follows a Model, View, & Controller based architectural pattern. Also, it has a very expressive syntax making it object-oriented. Symfony is one of the most common examples of the MVC approach, provides better clarity between the presentation and the underlying logic. The MVC architectural pattern provides multiple built-in functionalities, improves the overall performance, and also allows to create better documentation.

  1. Inbuilt Authentication and Authorization:

In addition to the out of the box authentication services, Laravel provides a very simplified way for the user actions authorization. There are two primary actions for the authorizations: gates and policies. Gates are like routes and policies are like controllers. Both are quite easy to implement.

  1. Multiple file system:

Laravel has in-built support for cloud services like S3 (Amazon), Rack space cloud storage, and also local storage. The API is the same for each system therefore switching between these storages becomes extremely easy. A developer can use these systems in an application in order to serve files from many different locations just like in a distributed environment.

  1. Packaging System:

The packaging system is linked with many supporting libraries or software which automates the web application process. It uses a composer as a dependency manager which can manage all the information required to manage the packages. In short, packages are required for adding the custom functionalities in the Laravel framework.

  1. Artisan Console:

Artisan is Laravel’s own command-line interface. There is a list of very helpful commands that can assist the developer while developing a Laravel application. Mostly it is for package assets publishing, database migrations management, boilerplate code seeding, and generation. The developer gets free from creating code skeletons. It performs repetitive or monotonous tasks that no developer likes to do manually.

  1. Eloquent ORM:

Eloquent ORM is the framework’s in-built ORM implementation. The object-relational mapper in the Laravel is best as compared to the others. Moreover, it provides better interaction with the database objects and relationships by using expressive syntax.

  1. Templating Engine:

There is an inbuilt template engine in the Laravel “Blade Template Engine”. It links with single or multiple templates along with a data model to produce views. It reveals the templates into cached PHP code which makes the performance better. Also, there are sets of its own control structures like conditional statements and loops.

  1. Task Scheduler:

Earlier, you need to create a cron entry for each task that you want to schedule on the server. But this can become a painful task when the task schedule is not in the source control but need to do from the SSH into the server for additional cron entries. However, in the Laravel, it becomes a cakewalk. The command scheduler allows creating only a single cron entry for multiple tasks.

  1. Broadcasting and Events:

Broadcasting is the feature in Laravel which is useful to implement real-time data, live feeds broadcast, etc. Also, it allows sharing the same event name between client and server-side to pull real-time data from the application.

  1. Testing:

Laravel framework contains tests to prevent and detect regressions. In fact, the integration of a PHP unit like a testing framework is very easy in the Laravel application. Also, unit tests can be run through artisan commanded-line utility.
