Advantages of Laravel:-

Laravel offers you the following advantages when you are designing a web application based on it −

The web application becomes more scalable, owing to the Laravel framework.

Considerable time is saved in designing the web application since Laravel reuses the components from another framework in developing web applications.

It includes namespaces and interfaces, thus helping to organize and manage resources.

Features of Laravel

We know that PHP is the oldest programming language used by programmers, and more than 20 million websites are developed by using PHP. PHP is a very suitable programming language as it satisfies the business requirements whether the business is big or small. Laravel is one of the most popular frameworks having a high rich set of functionalities.

  • Authentication

Authentication is the most important factor in a web application, and developers need to spend a lot of time writing the authentication code. Laravel makes a simpler authentication when Laravel is updated to Laravel 5. Laravel contains an inbuilt authentication system, you only need to configure models, views, and controllers to make the application work.

  • Innovative Template Engine

Laravel provides an innovative template engine that allows the developers to create a dynamic website. The available widgets in Laravel can be used to create solid structures for an application.

  • Effective ORM

Laravel contains an inbuilt ORM with easy PHP Active Record implementation. An effective ORM allows the developers to query the database tables by using the simple PHP syntax without writing any SQL code. It provides easy integration between the developers and database tables by giving each of the tables with their corresponding models.

  • MVC Architecture Support

Laravel supports MVC architecture. It provides a faster development process as in MVC; one programmer can work on the view while the other is working on the controller to create the business logic for the web application. It provides multiple views for a model, and code duplication is also avoided as it separates the business logic from the presentation logic.

  • Secure Migration System

Laravel framework can expand the database without allowing the developers to put much effort every time to make changes, and the migration process of Laravel is very secure and full-proof. In the whole process, PHP code is used rather than SQL code.

  • Unique Unit-testing

Laravel provides a unique unit-testing. Laravel framework can run several test cases to check whether the changes harm the web app or not. In Laravel, developers can also write the test cases in their code.

  • Intact Security

Application security is one of the most important factors in web application development. While developing an application, a programmer needs to take effective ways to secure the application. Laravel has an inbuilt web application security, i.e., it takes care of the security of an application. It uses the "Bcrypt Hashing Algorithm" to generate the salted password means that the password is saved as an encrypted password in a database, not in the form of plain text.

  • Libraries and Modular

Laravel is very popular as some Object-oriented libraries, and pre-installed libraries are added in this framework, these pre-installed libraries are not added in other PHP frameworks. One of the most popular libraries is an authentication library that contains some useful features such as password reset, monitoring active users, Bcrypt hashing, and CSRF protection. This framework is divided into several modules that follow the PHP principles allowing the developers to build responsive and modular apps.

  • Artisan

Laravel framework provides a built-in tool for a command-line known as Artisan that performs repetitive programming tasks that do not allow the PHP developers to perform manually. These artisans can also be used to create the skeleton code, database structure, and migration, so it makes it easy to manage the database of the system. It also generates the MVC files through the command line. Artisan also allows the developers to create their commands.
