Laravel is a free, open source PHP web framework developed by Taylor Otwell. Laravel is intended for the development of web applications that use the model view controller (abbreviated MVC) software-architecteur model.

Taylor Otwell's goal is to make Laravel develop a better PHP framework than the CodeIgniter framework, which does not provide fundamental support for user authentication and authorization that allows you to ensure that certain users do not have access to everything.

In addition, Laravel is known for, among other things, a modular package system that helps with the execution and maintenance of applications, easy way of making connections with relational databases to manipulate information (processing, adapting, deleting and displaying).

The Laravel ecosystem does not only include the framework, but also offers (paid) tools like Forge, Envoyer, Nova and Spark.
