Laravel: For the Next Level of Evolved Web Applications and Experiences
Laravel is a next generation MVC ( Model-View-Controller) based PHP application framework that lets you create highly scalable and flexible, enterprise grade web applications, eCommerce solutions and SaaS based businesses.
Robust Software Architecture
Laravel implements a templating engine known as Blade that automates template boiler-plates. Following the patterns of Model-View-Controller, the entire code base is segregated and structured for future scalability and easier code management, something that is a must in complex development projects. Tools like Artisan CLI, further help in ensuring that the system adheres to the designed architecture at all stages of development.
Test Driven Development
Laravel allows developers to implement Unit Testing as a feature built into the framework itself. With native support for cross integration with packages like Selenium and PHPUnit. A wide variety of high-transactional business critical implementations can be safely developed and deployed using these testing automation benefits.
Object Relational Mapping
With the Eloquent ORM package, applications developed over Laravel ensure that SQL bottlenecks are prevented. The in-built ActiveRecord implementation allows database tables to be wrapped in classes with object instances being used to call them, thus freeing the developer from writing SQL queries. Defining the database tables and its relationships is all it takes to set up the Database part with Eloquent.
Laravel provides a high degree of support to create a set of API endpoints and interfaces for the entire developed application over the globally accepted REST API standard through its RESTful Routing process. This ensures that applications can be integrated with third-party services without compromising on security and performance. A direct added benefit of this is allowing a single engine to make applications work across screens (i.e. Desktop, Tablet, Mobile and Wearable Tech)
