Laravel PHP Framework Review

The PHP framework for web artisans


Love using this framework in my projects. It has a nice ORM(Eloquent) and uses cascading config pattern. It's very organized, uses composer to manage dependencies and is just all around great framework. I have used Laravel to successfully deploy custom CQRS e-commerce shop, a landing page clone based on launchrock and more. I highly recommend it for any custom PHP project. I have built apps n version 3 and version 4, and would recommend using version 4

Please specify the version. Now it would be safe to assume version 4, but with subsequent releases this specific review may or may not apply.

If you know C and you are hardcore performance junkie checkout http://phalconphp.com/en/ I think of it as a sister project to PHP because it's written in C and so is PHP. At the moment it is not as mature as laravel, but it sure does out perform and allows you to optimize your code(by your classes into C) in the re-factor/performance tuning stage.

One of my best framework I've come across. Easy to use, robustness are major pros of the Laravel 4.0.
