9 Reasons Why Developers Build with Laravel and X Reasons They Host on Cloudways
What Makes Laravel Such a Great Choice for Developers?
Laravel’s extreme popularity (over 741,766 live websites!) hinges on how it removes the pain from the developmental process. It simplifies the mundane and routine tasks performed in every other web project, such as routing, sessions, authentication and caching. Here’s what’s so great about it.
It Has a Short Learning Curve, and the Community is Supportive
Among developers, Laravel is considered to be easy to learn and use, particularly if you’ve worked with PHP. The community of Laravel developers is a mature one, and it plays a large hand in helping newbies out whenever they’re stuck. The documentation is thorough, and there are plenty of resources to help out developers, on platforms like Laracast, Laravel.io, Reddit Laravel and our very own Cloudways Community.
What’s more, there are hundreds of Laravel libraries, including comprehensive Laravel outlines on 20+ distinctive Object Oriented libraries – more so than in any other PHP system like CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Symfony, or Zend System 2. This permits developers to design responsive, valuable, and modular web apps.
Laravel’s versatile and user-friendly interface also makes it easy to use. It simplifies long and complex programming tasks like routing, authentication, and caching, and makes the process smoother and more effective.
“Laravel has always been the best framework that focuses on developer experience. The development patterns might not be ideal for everyone, but they sure make it possible to develop something quickly and still keep it maintainable and testable.”
~ Developer Bobby Bouwmann
