Introduction What is Laravel

What is Laravel?

Learn Laravel Basics, Introduction What is Laravel Laravel is a PHP Web Application Framework. It just like CodeIgniter which is one of the well-known PHP frameworks before.

The Web Application Framework is a 'framework' designed to support the development of web applications. The framework referred to here is like a guide / procedure / standard / library that has been provided.



What is the purpose of a Framework?

When we talk about frameworks, what we imagine is the ease of making things. Indeed, the framework was created with the aim of automating common things that are usually done when building an application.

For example, for connection to database commands, database query commands, database processing commands, they are no longer written manually (natively), but a database library has been provided by the framework and the execution commands are simpler.

The creator of Laravel is Taylor Otwell. He is a developer who previously also used the CodeIgniter framework.
