Laravel is a free, open-source PHP web framework, created by Taylor Otwell and intended for the development of web applications following the model–view–controller architectural pattern and based on Symfony.
What is Laravel and why it is used?
Laravel is an open-source PHP framework designed to make developing web apps easier and faster through built-in features. These features are part of what makes Laravel so widely used by web developers:
- A modular packaging system with dependency management. This means you can easily add functionalities to your Laravel app without writing them from scratch. You can either create your own packages for code you routinely use or install ready-to-use packages through Composer.
- A complete authentication system
- Object-relational mapping. Eloquent ORM included with Laravel presents database tables as classes for easier data access and manipulation.
- A command-line interface (CLI) that comes with dozens of pre-built commands (Artisan).
- Automatic testing. Automated tests are provided as an integral part of Laravel.
- A portable, virtual development environment. Homestead provides developers with all the tools necessary to develop Laravel straight out of the box.
Is Laravel a CMS?
Unlike CMS’s like Drupal or WordPress, Laravel gives you full control over your application. In Laravel everything is done in code, unlike Drupal or Joomla, for example, where you can create functional websites without writing a single line of code or without even knowing what PHP is.
Simply put, a CMS is an app that comes with basic functionalities and is built on top of a framework. Laravel is a framework and it’s used to build apps, including CMS platforms.
