Laravel is an elegant, powerful, and popular open-source PHP framework primarily used to build web applications and APIs. It is designed to make development more efficient by providing an extensive set of features, elegant abstractions, and tools for rapid application development.

Why do Developers Choose Laravel?

Laravel is easy to learn, provides great scalability and flexibility, and includes a range of features to help developers create secure and well-architected applications.

Out of the box, Laravel has elegant solutions for the common features needed by all modern web applications – including user management, ORM, data validation, job queues, and many more best practices.
Laravel is also maintainable – a regular release schedule brings new features and streamlines the framework while Laravel Shift makes upgrades relatively painless vs other platforms.

The documentation provided with the framework is comprehensive and well written. Laravel also provides a range of built-in features that make it easy to create a secure and well-architected web application. For example, it has a robust authentication system that can be extended to support social logins, includes a powerful templating engine (or can power a front end application via an API or Inertia), and the community maintains a range of helpful libraries and packages for just about every need.

As a whole, the Laravel community is very supportive, and there are numerous resources available to help developers learn and use the framework. With the help of the Laravel community, developers can efficiently develop the applications businesses and organizations need to succeed in their mission.
