With over 34 million downloads, 400 contributors and a highly active community of developers releasing new packages for the platform (there are currently over 16,000 available on Packalyst alone) Laravel is growing at an incredible rate.
Laravel is the most popular PHP framework on github and is excellent for building authentication and authorisation systems. Using the MVC Architecture, Laravel focuses heavily on security, reducing the risks of SQL injections and scripting attacks. Laravel makes URL routing easy and similar to Zend, provides a manageable way to separate the front and back end code.
The base features of the framework (routing, authentication, even Stripe payment gateway integrations) allow us to rapidly build out highly functional web applications for your website project.
