Laravel vs Spring: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Spring? Provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications. A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.

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

"Clean architecture", "Growing community" and "Composer friendly" are the key factors why developers consider Laravel; whereas "Java", "Open source" and "Great community" are the primary reasons why Spring is favored.

Laravel and Spring are both open source tools. Laravel with 53K GitHub stars and 16.2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Spring with 30.1K GitHub stars and 19.2K GitHub forks.

PedidosYa, Sellsuki, and Webedia are some of the popular companies that use Laravel, whereas Spring is used by MIT, Zillow, and Bodybuilding.com. Laravel has a broader approval, being mentioned in 817 company stacks & 753 developers stacks; compared to Spring, which is listed in 316 company stacks and 179 developer stacks.

Reviews of Laravel and Spring
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.

Spring is another gift rained down by the gods of Open Source Software (a.k.a. Pivotal Labs in this particular case) that just makes sense on all levels.

From Spring Boot, to SpringMVC, the configuration architecture & profile paradigm, Spring Cloud expandability, to the ease with which one can deploy Spring applets as microservices within Docker is an absolute joy.

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.

  • Persistence
  • REST
  • Email
  • Security
  • Self contained application with spring boot
  • And many others.

그냥 간단한 MVC 웹 프레임 워크 인줄 알았는데 정말 모듈화가 잘 되있고, 사용하다보면 개발자에게 정말 편리하게 만들어 놓았다. vaildation 부분은 따로 처리 할 수 있고, 파라미터 담는 변수와 디폴트 값을 인자로 설정해 주는 부분도 참 좋은 것 같다. 또 spring-data 는 jpa 활용해 빠르게 개발하는데 유용하다.

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.
