What is Laravel?
Laravel is a web application development open-source framework firstly introduced in 2011 by Taylor Otwell. Building an application with it is web developers-friendly. It has several built-in features that limit tedious and repetitive activities in development, such as authentication or caching. In addition, thanks to such an ecosystem, the development team's work is made more accessible and much faster! Laravel is a server-side web framework that is responsible for the whole technical background of an app.
Laravel is one of the best PHP frameworks in the world. With many clients satisfied with the end product quality. If you are still not sure about the use of Laravel, take a look at its benefits!
Nowadays, having a web application is one of the best things a company can do to gain recognition and attract customers. If you don't have a web app yet, use a framework like Laravel to change it as soon as possible. Solutions used in Laravel make the development process faster than ever! Experienced Laravel developers can deliver more code than using other PHP frameworks.
Security is one of the most important things we pay attention to when developing. The Internet is constantly evolving, and so are cyber attacks. The framework is equipped with systems that protect against both CSRF and XSS, such as special filters to catch requests from unidentified sources. Applications developed in this environment are also protected against many attacks that take advantage of security vulnerabilities. What's more, thanks to its modularity, many different security solutions can be added to Laravel, which results in resistance to any attacks.
To ensure the best performance of your website, Laravel has the feature of caching implemented from day one. It allows the app to use fast data retrieval when the CPU is very busy, and page loading without caching would eat up forever. Depending on the needs, developers can also use various development tools that boost performance.
Building a web application using Laravel is a great option when it comes to saving funds. Compared to other web frameworks, Laravel is open-source, which means that you will have to pay only for web developers' time, not for the tool they're using for development. Moreover, because Laravel development is pretty quick, you'll pay for a lot less time.
The integrative nature of PHP Laravel comes in handy not only for developers but also for your business. It is because you will be able to connect your CRM or any other software that your company uses or will use to your newly created web application without any hiccups along the way.
The list of user-friendly solutions in Laravel is long, so start a project with us if you want to know more! If you target different countries, you can be sure that the language of an application will not be a problem because Laravel has built-in translation features. Then, if you want your web application to require logging in from the user, it will not be bothersome for him because Laravel has built-in solutions from the authentication family. To confirm that everything is working, the user should receive an email. Laravel has a mail API service that allows for easy integration with the mailing software.

Frequently asked questions
Laravel is a PHP framework with an expressive and elegant syntax. It utilizes the model–view–controller (MVC) architecture.
Let's start with the heart of Laravel - PHP. It is an open-source backend scripting language designed for writing web pages and web applications.
It is estimated that up to 80% of websites on the Internet are based on PHP. Frameworks created with it offer many code libraries where you can find pre-programmed modules.
The advantages of such a solution include faster development because developers no longer have to write each line of code separately and much better conditions for later maintenance.
Laravel operates on MVC architecture which divides the application into exactly as many parts as the abbreviation has letters:
M (Model) - data,
V (View) - an interface on which you can see the data and modify it,
C (Controller) - operations that can be performed on the data.
Structuring the application in such a way ensures that there is no clutter in it, and the code is well organized, which provides much more excellent stability for your web application.
Laravel uses the Symfony PHP framework as a skeleton but adds a lot of its logic and features that cannot be found anywhere else.
The list of Laravel's features is long; find out about the most important ones for your business!
Laravel has built-in translation solutions for easy multilingual web app development. It makes it ideal for websites that need to be translated into other languages or international projects.
Web development is all about making access fast and easy for the user. Laravel's expressive and unified API for cache backends enables web applications to be more efficient by taking advantage of lightning-fast data retrieval.
The result is always a tremendous performative web app!
This feature allows you to implement various packages (including third-party) into a code without needing to do it manually. It makes using packages faster and fully compatible. Composer, which is a PHP dependency manager, is responsible for this.
Modularity is the degree to which a developer can combine, separate, and then recombine an app's components. Laravel's modular packaging system makes it easy to add functionalities to your application without building them from scratch.
Modularity enables you to develop large-scale applications quickly and efficiently while ensuring fewer errors.
Laravel framework offers a unique way to test a web app. With Laravel's built-in unit tests, developers can run several different cases and make sure that the changes don't harm the web app in any way. Website developers can also write the test cases on their own.
Authenticating is both the most important and one of the most time-consuming things in web development. Laravel makes it simpler and faster with an in-built authentication system that only requires models, views, and controllers to be configured for your app to work flawlessly.
Laravel comes in with its template engine called Blade Templating Engine. It can create great performative views by encoding templates into cached PHP code.
Compared with other templating engines, Blade allows developers to use plain PHP code.
Laravel has had 20 versions since its initial release. The list of its versions is as follows:Laravel 1
Laravel 3 (3.1; 3.2)
