Laravel sees itself as a PHP framework for web artisans and it mostly delivers on that promise. Boasting an expressive and elegant syntax, this framework combines some of the most useful from other popular web frameworks like Rails and Sinatra. Based on Symfony, Laravel uses an MVC pattern and provides a comprehensive set of tools you can use to build large and robust applications.

Laravel is a free, open-source PHP web framework, created by Taylor Otwell and intended for the development of web applications following the model–view–controller (MVC) architectural pattern and based on Symfony. Some of the features of Laravel are a modular packaging system with a dedicated dependency manager, different ways for accessing relational databases, utilities that aid in application deployment and maintenance, and its orientation toward syntactic sugar.The source code of Laravel is hosted on GitHub and licensed under the terms of MIT License.
