AngularJS vs Laravel: What are the differences?

AngularJS: Superheroic JavaScript MVW Framework. AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding; Laravel: A PHP Framework For Web Artisans. Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.

AngularJS can be classified as a tool in the "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category, while Laravel is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

"Quick to develop", "Great mvc" and "Powerful" are the key factors why developers consider AngularJS; whereas "Clean architecture", "Growing community" and "Composer friendly" are the primary reasons why Laravel is favored.

AngularJS and Laravel are both open source tools. AngularJS with 59.6K GitHub stars and 28.9K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Laravel with 53.4K GitHub stars and 16.4K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, AngularJS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 2799 company stacks & 1860 developers stacks; compared to Laravel, which is listed in 831 company stacks and 773 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to AngularJS and Laravel?
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
Angular 2
Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
React
Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
Node.js
Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
jQuery
jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

I use Laravel because once a client asked me to use it, I recognized that as a solo programmer, I could go from idea to basic website in under an hour. Add one of the app builder templates and the basic design is done for me as well (I use AdminLTE). Lead management means a simple database and some basic workflow - that is where you should be spending your effort. Laravel is well-enough designed that you can plug in a few basic web pages, a simple set of object models, and some Controllers that hold your business logic - and then you iterate on the pages (the UI) and the business logic until your requirements are met. If you are a stickler or have corporate CSS standards, they can be implemented easily enough. And the community is huge and friendly.

For your purposes, I recommend @Laravel, or even @Symfony or @Yii, or whatever. In your use case, a framework is 100% indicated, because it will cut your boilerplate in half or more, and you'll have a pre-fab organization for files, classes and so on. Personally, I am not a fan of Frameworks, because they tend to take over your project like cancer and trap you. But for an internal app to manage stuff, it's probably the best idea to use one (preferably one you like).

When doing internal apps, your best bet is to stick the essentials and basics, try Laravel with MySQL on a nice Debian virtual machine. Can't go wrong.

Review ofLaravelLaravel

I moved from .NET and Rails to Laravel, and since then never thought to go back. I feel Laravel framework has the capability to overcome all modern frameworks.

At Soft Pyramid we are developing rich business applications using Laravel Framework, and never feel any limitation even for complex reporting.We have written REST apis, complex ERP solutions and found awsome in all areas.

AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. With AngularJS, designers can use HTML as the template language and it allows for the extension of HTML's syntax to convey the application's components effortlessly. Angular makes much of the code you would otherwise have to write completely redundant. We can use Angular to build any kind of app, taking advantage of features like: Two-way binding, templating, RESTful api handling, modularization, AJAX handling, dependency injection, etc

All of our frontend code is on AngularJS. Directives, controllers, and services really help in organizing code in order to keep things maintainable, and two-way binding makes data input easy. The large ecosystem of modules for directives is fantastic, too.

When ever I need heavy user client side apps this is my tool of choice. There are a ton of JS frameworks out there, picked this one because of philosophy they are trying to put out there and great community. Two way data binding FTW!

The best PHP framework right now, intuitive and growing up quickly.

We use Laravel in the outer layer of our Clean Architecture codebases, whereby the domain model does not rely on the framework as a whole.

See "PHP", I don't really choose to use it, but I can step in and operate in Laravel when necessary. Same goes for quite a few other PHP frameworks, including my own full-featured proprietary stack.

The front end was built on an Angular template supplied by the client. We leveraged Angular's flexibility and speed to delivered complex matrices of data quickly and with great finesse.

An excellent PHP framework employing SOLID principles to rapidly develop web-site systems and connect them to databases. Custom development of admin screens for website management.

We use Angular.js to build our front-end framework known as Frontkit, so our apps can get started faster with reliable, interactive components.

Laravel is the PHP framework we use. It speeds up development and simplifies a lot of PHP. Complicated at first but saves time once you're comfortable with it.
