Laravel vs Core PHP: Which One is Better? This is a subjective question. For any web application, web development platforms are like the bread in sandwiches. They are the base on which sandwiches, here web applications, web services and software are (spread) built. So we must choose the best one for the powerful basement.
In this article, we are discussing about the pros and cons of Core PHP & Laravel framework.
A framework is a ‘skeleton’ on which the designers and developers build unique applications with desired features. Developers also prefer Laravel as it offers a vast ecosystem, which brings instant hosting and deployment platform, along with screen cast tutorials hosted by the official Laravel website.
Platform Comparison – Laravel Vs Core Php
|1||Structure||MVC architecture||Modular structure (based on modules)|
|2||Code reusability||Support code reusability||Support code reusability,
|3||Flexibility||Strict rules of development||More code level flexibility|
|4||Speed||Enhances performance and accuracy||Fully depends on the code base developed|
|5||Code consistency||Provide code level consistency||No|
|7||Caching||Laravel supports cache backends like Memcached and Redis out-of- the-box.

|8||Security||Default authorization and authentication systems enables security||No default security rules. Need to integrate while development.|
|9||External Dependency||There will be an external dependency for your application (depends on external packages)||No external dependency|
|10||Data communication||Authorized via security token, this prevents posting data from other domains||No authorized data communication by default.|
|11||Risks||Laravel itself prevents all the security vulnerabilities, SQL Injection, cross scripting attacks etc.||Need to apply our own security rules to prevent vulnerabilities.|

|14||Technical Vulnerabilities||Helps to secure the web application by protecting it against the most serious security risks: SQL injection, cross-site request forgery, and cross-site scripting.||No default security system is available. We can use libraries/ packages to make it secure and protect against vulnerabilities|
|15||Error and Exception Handling||Error and exception handling is already configured||No default error and exception handling is available.|
|16||Integration with Mail Services||Provides a clean, simple API over the popular SwiftMailer library.||No default mailer is available. We can choose the best according to email content|
Both Core PHP and Laravel frameworks are built to develop websites and web applications. However, the frameworks will simplify the development process and reduce the work required in creating wonderful applications.
The main reason why people love Laravel is that it is easy to code, and you get other benefits like documentation support, MVC support and reliable database. If you are a developer looking to make a mark, Laravel couldn’t be a bad choice. However, if you prefer to go by the popularity level, then Core PHP is definitely several steps ahead of the other framework.
