Developers prefer Laravel over other PHP frameworks, here’s a quick look at some of Laravel’s stand-out features.
Laravel’s “Artisan” Tool
You’ve probably heard of a command-line interface (CLI)—an interface where developers interact with frameworks and other computer programs. Well, Laravel has its very own interface: the Artisan Console. Artisan can help streamline and perform repetitive and complex tasks so developers don’t have to, with built-in commands that help out during the development process.
Database management made easy with Migrations
You can’t talk about Laravel without looking at the brilliant way it handles database migrations, Laravel’s answer to streamlining how databases are designed, managed and modified. Laravel’s creators say, “Migrations are like version control for your database, allowing your team to easily modify and share the application’s database schema.
Top-notch security features
When it comes to security, Laravel makes it easy with out-of-the-box authentication and authorization, convenient email verification, a built-in encrypter (OpenSSL), and hashing. And, because Laravel acts as an intermediary system intercepting front-end requests to the server, it’s able to minimize website hacking via code injection.
Libraries that make it easier to add building blocks of code to your app
Laravel leverages with libraries that cover everything from Authentication to password hashing algorithms. This helps make applications more modular—and make it a perfect partner with UI libraries like Vue to build API-driven single-page applications quickly and easily (with reusable code).
