hapi vs Laravel: What are the differences?

hapi: Server Framework for Node.js. hapi is a simple to use configuration-centric framework with built-in support for input validation, caching, authentication, and other essential facilities for building web applications and services; 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.

hapi can be classified as a tool in the "Microframeworks (Backend)" category, while Laravel is grouped under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

"Makes me Hapi making REST APIs" is the primary reason why developers consider hapi over the competitors, whereas "Clean architecture" was stated as the key factor in picking Laravel.

hapi and Laravel are both open source tools. It seems that Laravel with 53K GitHub stars and 16.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than hapi with 11.2K GitHub stars and 1.16K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Laravel has a broader approval, being mentioned in 817 company stacks & 753 developers stacks; compared to hapi, which is listed in 54 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Serves static content. Was added to make it more easy to transition to serverside view templating and API.
