Building websites for special purposes and services is difficult. You have to keep up with modern challenges as well as fight for the speed, performance, and security of the software you develop. To achieve this web developers often use frameworks to deal with tasks faster and more effortlessly. Since most of the websites, web services, and applications are built using PHP it is important to be aware of all novelties regarding frameworks for PHP developers. One of the most useful and popular frameworks for PHP programming languages is Laravel. This open-source framework is used for a vast majority of middle-sized PHP-based projects nowadays. But why is it that popular? Due to many things, actually.
As a PHP framework Laravel claims to be the most advanced tool for PHP developers. It is characterized by a great ecosystem, great cashing, testing, data security, and overall performance. Laravel is a cross-platform framework suitable for both websites and applications, showing great results. Laravel is the most user-friendly PHP framework and this is the very first reason for its renown. Due to using MVC architecture and codes from other frameworks, Laravel remains both simple to understand and very practical. Once you get used to Laravel it becomes your favorite tool for PHP development. Laravel based websites and applications on the other hand are suitable for users and bug-free.
Laravel has lots of cons, which encourage developers to exploit it. Laravel provides a wide range of development services such as design services, business and e-commerce solutions, integration and customization services. It also is comparatively simple to switch from one platform to Laravel or from an older version of the framework to a newer one.
High performance in terms of data security is Laravel’s asset. It is vital if your project will be dealing with goods, money, and private users’ data because you have to pay special attention to data leaks in this case. Laravel delivers extremely high information security for the software developed within the ecosystem. This is possible due to the revolutionary approach. The framework uses pre-installed object-oriented libraries. It is equipped with an Eloquent ORM system. With its help Laravel uses PHP code directly instead of exploiting more vulnerable SQL files, thus making your code safer from data losses and different kinds of web fraud.
Overall better website performance delivered by Laravel is possible because of the framework’s supreme caching. Another important feature of Laravel is the unified API for different back-ends. This approach lets you make your web-service’s work significantly faster. It will also enable better integrations with numerous web services.
Blade template engine
Blade is a tool that makes Laravel so simple in use and delivers its interoperability. In contrast to other PHP engines, Blade doesn’t restrict users from using plain PHP code within the application’s templates. Blade caches and compiles all the templates till they are modified. Hence, the engine doesn’t complicate your code, saving your time and reducing the probability of software’s bugging. This is really appreciated by the Laravel developers.
Laravel framework has a great choice of various object-oriented libraries and an improved database migration system. Object-oriented libraries aren’t common for other PHP frameworks and make the framework faster and more secure. Authentication library is one of the best pre-installed libraries with encryption, active user checking, and other authentication services. This built-in library prevents much web fraud connected with CRSF.
Great Authentication Performance
Among the rest, Laravel provides the fastest authentication when compared with other frameworks. Such basic things for many internet users all over the world as registering, logging in, or changing passwords are done in Laravel with only one simple command, thus making it faster and more convenient for the sites’ customers. Laravel is an undeniable authorization logic leader.
Software testing is a great reason to chose Laravel for web development. Laravel doesn’t only help to create advanced software fast, it also makes it much easier to test new samples. The framework has a special testing package. That’s why the software developed via Laravel is usually more reliable and bug-free than the analogs.
