Laravel vs Spring: What are the differences?
What is Laravel? A PHP Framework For Web Artisans. Laravel is a web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax. We believe development must be an enjoyable, creative experience to be truly fulfilling. Laravel attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.
What is Spring? Provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications. A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
Laravel and Spring can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Clean architecture", "Growing community" and "Composer friendly" are the key factors why developers consider Laravel; whereas "Java", "Open source" and "Great community" are the primary reasons why Spring is favored.
