Whenever something is available for free, it easily grabs the attention of most of the people! Laravel framework is free and it is an open source platform. With the help of it, you can effortlessly devise complex and large web applications. More interestingly, starting your work with Laravel is extremely headache-free.

The PHP installation and a text editor - these are enough to start with your web application development.

#2 Follows MVC

For a successful and smooth business development process, a transparency between presentation and the business logic is really crucial to some great extent. Usually, MVC offers better documentation along with a handful of effective built-in functions. Thus, it caters to enhance the performance quality of the entire business flow. Now, Laravel framework has been developed based on this potent MVC architecture. So, once you choose Laravel as your web development platform, you can avail the facilities offered by MVC.

#3 Blade Templating

One of the main alluring facts about Laravel development is that it uses simple PHP code in the application. More interestingly, you don’t have to worry about any added overhead in the application. Two main advantages of using Blade template engine are the template inheritance and the sections. Additionally, you can extend views, define sections, escape and echo conditional statements without affecting the speed of your application. Laravel by default comes with the facility of this Blade template engine. Hence, using it, you can augment the performance of your website.



#4 Caching

Caching mainly revolves around storing various vital objects in the database. Laravel can efficiently handle such caching tasks without much effort. Moreover, you can integrate the framework with various caching systems such as APC, Memcached and Redis. In this way, boosting the performance of the web application becomes smoother by integrating one of such robust and dynamic caching system into the Laravel.

#5 Inbuilt Libraries

The inbuilt Authentication library of Laravel is quite well-known in the market for offering improved security features that include encryption, CSRF protection, database and login securities.

#6 Unit Testing

With the efficient help of Laravel, web developers can perform unit testing through the PHP Unit by assessing an explicit feature or functionality of the web application. Moreover, by default, Laravel sets up the file PHPUnit.XML that caters the developers by allowing them to write several test cases and to perform the unit testing throughout the entire development process. If you require any custom testing methods, Laravel permits you to do so depending on the project requirements.

#7 Route Middleware

HTTP middleware provides extra layers to the dedicated HTTP route. Laravel supports this HTTP middleware. Moreover, with the help of such middleware, you can test as well as remove all the conventional layers along with the individual request. You don’t need to use any extra third-party tool to establish an optimised communication between the web server and your application.

If you choose Laravel for your web development project, apart from all the aforementioned benefits, you can avail the facilities of Artisan, an effective tool to make the programming tasks easier for the developers, improved routing system, high-end authorization and authentication along with database seeding.
