Overall Satisfaction with Laravel PHP Framework

Laravel PHP Framework - a great, popular, vastly used framework by developer community.
It's usefulness -
1. Open source framework.
2. Can be used with MySql, SQL Server, and SQLite database systems.
3. Can be used for small, medium or large projects irrespective of its size.
4. Testing of project is much easier than any other framework.
5. The blade template engine is very instinctive, and works better for developing any project.

  • Can be used for any type of project no matter what size.
  • Lightweight.
  • Has multiple features which helps in developing, testing and releasing the product.
  • Interaction to command line using Artisan is also a plus point.
  • Using of libraries is I think the worst part. Sometimes developers purchase libraries which can be built.
  • Problematic upgrade of version also caused bugs on projects.
  • Clients are happy with the product.
  • Developing and testing is easy and fast.
Supporting unit testing is bigger plus point in Laravel than any other framework. Developing with Laravel is much easier. Other frameworks have value in market, but Laravel has taken the lead in popularity among PHP developers in recent years. The large community supports you if you have problems. Using Laravel, integration became easy with third-party libraries, but it was costly too.
This framework's pros are more than cons. It can be used for many purposes; building e-commerce is one of them.
1. Code is clean and simple because of its routing.
2. Connection to database and query optimizing.
3. The amazing automatic memory to remember past queries is a big plus.
4. Migrations is the most crucial feature of this framework.
5. Supporting unit tests out of the box.
6. Artisan to use command line.
7. Large community to support your queries.
