Laravel is an advanced, well-documented PHP framework for developing applications, services or simple websites, packed with features and fully extendable in the future.
There are so many PHP frameworks out on the Web that choosing one can sometimes be a lottery. That's why when having to select one, some serious detective work must be carried out.
Laravel complies with most conditions developers have when choosing a good PHP framework.
First of all, Laravel is very well documented, so a programmer won't spend time reading the source, but reading the documentation and code examples. This ensures a fast learning curve, and accessibility even to PHP beginners.
Second, Laravel was specifically built with extensibility in mind. That's why its core code base is small and, to add features, developers simply add packages (also called bundles). Currently, there are over 250 Laravel bundles on their official package repository.
Third and last, Laravel syntax is extremely easy and intuitive. You don't have to learn Elvish to write Laravel code. Just look at the examples in the documentation page. You can actually tell what they do just by reading the source code.
