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.
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.
A clean, easy to understand, well documented framework with excellent tools and a great community providing every imaginable extension to add functionality to your project.
