Laravel vs PHP-MVC: 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, PHP-MVC is detailed as "Simple and easy to understand MVC skeleton application". This project is - by intention - NOT a full framework, it's a bare-bone structure, written in purely native PHP ! The php-mvc skeleton tries to be the extremely slimmed down opposite of big frameworks like Zend2, Symfony or Laravel.
Laravel and PHP-MVC can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Laravel and PHP-MVC are both open source tools. Laravel with 53.4K GitHub stars and 16.4K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Laravel has a broader approval, being mentioned in 831 company stacks & 773 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.
