Why is Laravel so popular?
Developers can start to build a Laravel application within a few minutes! It’s always a fun process. Laravel gives the right tools and nice ideas to help build website faster, more stable and very easy to maintain.
- Tasks that usually take hours and hundreds of lines of code to write, can be done with Laravel framework in a few minutes with pre-built functions. For example, basic authentication (including social login integration), cache (to improve performance), form validation (to ensure that user has provided necessary and properly formatted information), and etc. are already implemented in a new installation of Laravel. Development becomes easier, faster, and efficient!
- Writing unit tests is usually very time-consuming, however, it’s definitely worth the spent time because software testing provides clients with information about the quality of the product or service. Fortunately, Laravel testing is already integrated into the framework!
- Laravel community is very friendly and helpful, and documentation is detailed: developer doesn’t need to spend much time researching best practices in developing and maintaining web applications and making decisions on how to implement everything properly. Unlike Symfony or Zend framework, developers can find many code snippets, tutorials, courses about Laravel.
