PHP is a very powerful and well known platform. Almost 50% of the web is powered by PHP. There are many PHP frameworks out there so it’s probably hard to chose one. In this post i have compiled a best PHP framework. In this post i have briefly described about framework and it’s uses.
Laravel is an amazing PHP framework for web artisans. Build huge enterprise applications, or simple JSON APIs, Write powerful controllers, or slim restful routes. Laravel is perfect for jobs of all sizes.
Laravel equipped with tons of interesting features including RESTful routing, native PHP or light weight tempting engine and many more. Built using several Symfony components, Laravel offers you web application an amazing foundation of reliable and well-tested code. Some other interesting features of Laravel include: a powerful queue library, an amazing ORM, painless routing and a simple authentication.
Routing system: This framework takes an incredibly simple and easy-to-use approach to routing. Most beginner PHP Developers aren’t familiar with anything other than the most natural of route systems. It brings more flexibility and control over which route is triggered on the application. A direactory is created to match any desired URI. For example, an index.php file is added to the following directory: blog/admin/ and now can be accessed by browsing to: localhost:8888/blog/admin/index.php. It allows to create links to named routes. While creating links just use the route’s name and Laravel will automatically insert the correct URI. This allows to change routes at a later time and it will update all of the relevant links site-wide.
Unit-Testing: It is an important part of Laravel framework. It runs hundreds of tests to ensure that new changes don’t unexpectedly break anything. Laravel is widely considered to have some of the most stable releases in the industry as it is cautious of the known failures. Slowly it is being liked by the developers. It also makes it easy to write unit-tests for own code. One can then run tests with the “Artisan” command-line utility.
View Composers: These are blocks of code that can be run when a view is loaded. A very good example of this would be a blog side-navigation where it contains a list of random blog posts. A composer would contain the logic to load the blog posts so that all one has to do is load the view. This keeps from having to make sure that controllers load a bunch of data from models for views that are unrelated to that method’s page content.
Application Logic: It can be implemented within any application either using controllers or directly into route declarations using syntax similar to the Sinatra framework. Laravel is designed with priviledges giving a developer the flexibility that they need to create everything from very small sites to massive enterprise applications.
Automatic Pagination: It prevents application logic from being cluttered up with a bunch of pagination configuration. It gets the count of db records and selected data using a limit/offset called ‘paginate’ and interacts Laravel where to output the paging links in view. Laravel’s pagination system was designed for programmers to make their work easier to implement and change. Laravel can handle these things automatically and makes tasks easier.
