What is Laravel
Laravel is one of the most popular open source PHP web frameworks based on the model-view-controller (MVC) architectural pattern. In other words, the Model-View-Controller (MVC) type can provide you with rapid development and the ability to write maintainable code. For developers, thanks to the MVC architecture, Laravel allows them to save hours of development time and write thousands of lines of code. What sets Laraval apart from other frameworks is the support of an active developer community as well as powerful features.
We are engaged in professional development of Internet resources on the Laravel framework. We have been working with this PHP framework for more than 5 years, implementing various projects with high quality and on time.
8 Laravel Functions for Effective Web Development
The Laravel PHP framework offers many out-of-the-box features. As an efficient framework, Laravel offers improved database management and access, impressive file management, error resolution, and many other useful features.
- Quick access to databases.
- Quick access to command tools.
- Simplified routing.
- Rocking View templating engine.
- Simplified work planning.
- Ideal for subscription and billing sites.
- Useful authentication mechanisms.
- High quality security updates.
1. Fast access to databases
Laravel excels with an efficient set of tools for interacting with databases. These database migrations make it easy to design and modify your database regardless of platform.
2. Quick access to command tools
Laravel has an Artisan tool for sending commands. With Artisan, a developer can interact with an application to trigger actions such as starting a database migration, running unit tests, or scheduling a job.
3. Simplified routing
Getting your website to work flawlessly is easy with the right technology. Laravel also ensures that all your website urls are well organized across routers. If there is a link to a website or API that you want to change, Laravel allows you to change them in just one file.
4. Template engine Rocking View
The so-called Blade templating engine can clean up your views, providing an aesthetically pleasing replacement for inline PHP and adding powerful new features. In addition, because the templates in this structure are lightweight, it is much easier to create impressive layouts.
5. Simplified work planning
This feature, introduced in Laravel 5.0, is an add-on to the Artisan tool. Together, they allow you to program recurring tasks.
6. Ideal for subscription and billing sites
If you are looking to develop a website that requires a subscription or billing method, Laravel might be the perfect solution. Laravel functions provide a dedicated interface for managing subscription billing services such as those provided by Stripe. With it, you can easily process coupons and create invoices.
7. Useful authentication mechanisms
Laravel features also include basic authentication packages. Basic authentication can be easily configured for web pages and APIs in a few steps. In addition, Laravel is equipped with simplified authentication mechanisms. This includes various content providers as well as Facebook, Twitter, Google, GitHub, and Bitbucket.
8. High quality security updates
Laravel is also a highly secure framework that provides strong protection against a variety of threats. Laravel offers top-notch storage for your code base and at the same time allows your web application to run smoothly. It can deal with any security threat and risk, such as cross-site spoofing request and various kinds of SQL injection.

Laravel website creation steps
- Design development.
- Function design.

We analyze the competitive environment, dividing the domestic and foreign markets. We analyze the closest competitors, drawing conclusions about the pros and cons; what to borrow and what to avoid. An analytical report with conclusions and recommendations is provided.
Based on the conclusions of the previous stage, we form a proposal for a stack: a set of proposed technologies for a project on Laravel. We develop a proposal for the structure of the project, taking into account the requirements for search engine promotion. The end of the stage is the approved structure and stack. The structure is represented as a prototype of the structure.
At this stage, the formation of the technical task of the project begins, which describes all the expected functionality.
3. Development of design
Based on the structure prototype approved in the previous stage, a graphical resource prototype is developed. At the first stage, a graphic skeleton is developed with the designation of elements without design. After the structure of the main site templates is formed, their appearance is developed in accordance with the approved stack.
It is important to understand that the same elements can look and interact with each other in different ways depending on the intended platforms and technologies, even within the already predefined Laravel.
The end of the stage is the approval by the customer of the graphical interactive prototype of the main pages of the Internet resource on Laravel.
4. Designing functions
In fact, the stage consists in the formation of the technical task of the project. This stage can go in parallel with the previous one, the development of a graphic prototype, as it is closely related to it.
5. Writing code
5.1. Layout of appearance, frontend
Layout of the main front-end templates in accordance with the approved appearance prototypes and terms of reference.
5.2. Function programming, backend
Programming site functionality in Laravel.
5.3. Build a project on Laravel
Building a project from a ready-made frontend and backend.
6. Filling with materials, content
Introduction of the customer's materials into the project. At the first stage, a volume of materials sufficient for testing is introduced.
External and internal testing of the project in accordance with the terms of reference. Corrections are made based on the test results. The confirmed project is handed over to the customer.
8. Launching the project at the customer's site
The confirmed resource is transferred to the customer's site and launched there. By using continuous delivery schemes, this process can be automated.
9. Support and development
The project is handed over with documentation, which includes a technical task, documentation for the code and a training video with which the customer has the opportunity to store project management skills and train other specialists for the entire service life of the site on Laravel.
