Being a tech-devotee and customer-centric agency, Nethues works with brands who want their data to be managed, analyzed and re-engineered for informed decision making. Majority of our development revolves around the crux of making data usable, structured and consequential. Taking all this into consideration, it is wise to use a language like PHP for web application development, which is both cost-effective and time-saving. Further, it should be useful for projects that don’t strictly seek rigid security requirements or require ML/AI capabilities.

Well, there are several PHP based frameworks used for building robust web apps but among them we prefer Laravel. Why? This article has the answer. Here, in this post, we will explain why do we use Laravel for developing web apps and how it can benefit businesses.

PHP as a language and Laravel as a framework are ideally used by our developers for building web development projects including social networking websites, database-related software solutions, online communities, CRMs, CMSs and/or content-based websites. Further, we have identified that right after Laravel’s advent into the technology world, it has emerged itself to be a colossal web development supportive community offering an array of vital learning resources as well as tutorials to help web developers and programmers across the globe into designing and developing highly interactive web portals and applications. Also, it boasts almost all the attributes which are required to build fast and dynamic web applications.

Are these the only reasons why we use Laravel?

Well, no. We have a detailed analysis of the framework, stating all the features that lure us to choose Laravel.

Effective Authorization Process
Laravel ensures proper and easy implementation of different authentication & authorization techniques. Almost everything is configured extraordinarily. Moreover, the framework also provides a simplified way to organize the overall authorization logic along with control access to important resources.

MVC Support
One of the main reasons why we use Laravel is its ability to support MVC architecture like Symfony, ensuring a high level of clarity between logic & presentation. MVC support helps in enhancing the overall performance of the given web portal or application, ensures better documentation and offers high-end built-in functionalities.

Object-Oriented Libraries
Laravel is the only PHP framework with Object-Oriented libraries and other pre-installed ones. One of the pre-installed libraries is Authentication library which provides several advanced features including checking active users, Bcrypt hashing, password reset, CSRF (Cross-site Request Forgery) protection, and encryption.

Security
Laravel as a popular PHP web development framework ensures the highest level of security in terms of overall web development solutions. It uses the hashed password, which means that the password would never save as the plain text in the database. In addition to this, the framework uses prepared SQL statements which make injection attacks unimaginable.

By using a host of advanced security features like secure configuration, encryption, storing passwords, authentication drivers and/or protecting routes, Laravel ensures the topmost level of security.

Error Configuration and Exception Handling
Error and exception handling is already configured in the Laravel framework providing better user experience by giving proper error messages to the user. Laravel integrated with the Monolog logging library offers support for a variety of powerful log handlers.

Seamless Database Migration
One of the major jobs of the web developers is to ensure the keeping & maintaining of the database in proper synchronization between the different web development machines & systems. With the help of useful Laravel database migrations, this process becomes extremely simple. As long as the developers can keep & maintain all of the given database tasks in proper seeds & migration, they will be easily able to migrate the necessary changes to the same into any other web development machine or system.

This is why Nethues uses Laravel over other web application development frameworks for PHP based requirements.
