Why use Laravel?
Laravel is an open-source server-side PHP framework for full-stack web app development. Laravel was built on top of the Symfony framework and helps to create well-structured apps with model–view–controller (MVC) architecture.
Which Laravel version to use?
Laravel 8 is the latest version of the framework. It’s a general release that will be supported till March 2022 and receive security patches till September 2022. There’s still an option to use Laravel 6, which is a long-time support version that will continue to be maintained till September 2021 and receive security-only updates till September 2022. The next long-term support version 9 is released in September 2021.
What are the benefits of Laravel?
Laravel streamlines development by providing out-of-the-box tools, such as a complete authentication system, Eloquent ORM for database management, Artisan CLI with pre-built commands, Homestead virtual development environment, and automated tests. It has a robust modular packaging system with Composer dependency manager, which includes ready-to-use code for both common and advances web app features.
Is Laravel good for big projects?
Laravel can be used effectively for the development of large apps as it provides the stability and scalability enterprise projects require. Having a robust ecosystem supported by a huge PHP developer community, Laravel offers solutions for nearly every need a software project may have. It’s open-source and gives room for customization and extension of its functionality. Built-in automated tests help to keep large codebases clean and efficient without third-party testing tools.
Can Laravel apps scale?
With Laravel, you can create scalable apps using the framework’s built-in support for distributed cache systems. For good horizontal scaling, you can deploy your Laravel app on multiple servers with a load balancer in front of them. If your project requires extreme scaling, you can set up your app infrastructure on Vapor, the AWS Lambda serverless deployment platform for Laravel.
Is Laravel still relevant in 2022?
Laravel is one of PHP’s most popular frameworks for building, deploying and maintaining websites. PHP is what the majority of today’s websites are using as the backbone for their code. Laravel, therefore, is still relevant in 2022, although there are developers that would argue in favor of other frameworks over Laravel. In fact, Laravel possesses a variety of security features that significantly reduce the risks of encountering vulnerabilities during and after the development process is complete. In terms of ease of use, Laravel’s intuitive syntax and easy-to-follow coding practices significantly reduce development time, which also translates to cutting down on project costs as well. This PHP framework is here to stay for as long as it receives proper community support.
What is Laravel Forge?
Laravel Forge is considered a server management tool meant for deploying PHP and Laravel web apps. It is a commercial release by Laravel’s original creator Taylor Otwell, and it has since allowed him to start working on the project full-time. Laravel Forge works differently from the otherwise standard way of directly hosting your PHP application, in that it uses SSH instead. It installs all the required software on your server, from which you can run most PHP applications. This approach allows portability, so that you can switch between hosting providers whenever your project demands it—without losing the consistency of previous server setups. With Forge, there are fewer chances of committing errors in the security part of your application.
Why use Laravel?
Laravel is very popular among developers today, and with a good reason too. It’s very easy to learn, it has an approachable and somewhat reasonable learning curve, which is a big plus. It means that code produced with Laravel is less messy and much less complex overall, so it will pay dividends in the long term. Additionally, Laravel has a powerful built-in templating engine called Blade. The Blade template engine allows you to create a web page by leveraging the concept of dynamic content seeding. Finally, Laravel also has a robust built-in command-line functionality—Artisan. It helps to manage redundancy and repetitiveness in tasks, as well as to oversee database migrations. Perhaps the most powerful feature of Artisan is that it gives developers the ability to create their own, custom Artisan commands.
What is Laravel Query Builder?
Laravel Query Builder is a Laravel user interface for creating and running database queries. It can be utilized to execute a multitude of functions related to database operations, such as Aggregates, DB connection, CRUD, and more. It’s a high-performing interface supported by the most popular database systems and it can integrate seamlessly with your projects at a moment’s notice. The query builder can also easily fetch values and avoid SQL injection during the composition of raw SQL queries. As a Laravel developer, you can rest easy knowing that your database queries are taken care of without compromising on security or speed.
What is Laravel Sail?
Laravel Sail is a CLI (command-line interface) for creating and managing Laravel applications in a docker environment. The big advantage of incorporating Sail into your Laravel working environment is that all your project dependencies will become managed by docker. For example, if you need to work with MySQL, PHP or Redis, Sail will automatically install all the required dependencies by utilizing Docker. The same applies to images as well. Sails will pull in all the images from the Docker Hub and then create a container for each service in your main docker-compose file. Laravel Sail will save you a lot of time so you don’t have to worry about manually going through your project and figuring out what dependencies are necessary to install.
