Laravel vs Next.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe Laravel as "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. On the other hand, Next.js is detailed as "*A small framework for server-rendered universal JavaScript apps *". Next.js is a minimalistic framework for server-rendered React applications.

Laravel and Next.js can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"Clean architecture" is the top reason why over 416 developers like Laravel, while over 9 developers mention "Automatic server rendering and code splitting" as the leading cause for choosing Next.js.

Laravel and Next.js are both open source tools. Laravel with 53K GitHub stars and 16.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Next.js with 38.2K GitHub stars and 4.6K GitHub forks.

PedidosYa, Sellsuki, and Webedia are some of the popular companies that use Laravel, whereas Next.js is used by Avocode, OverCode Solutions, and CybrHome. Laravel has a broader approval, being mentioned in 817 company stacks & 753 developers stacks; compared to Next.js, which is listed in 79 company stacks and 66 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.
