Laravel – Latest PHP Framework for Web Artisans

As we know PHP launches the frameworks after some interval of timing in regular interval of time. This time we will discuss the customized MVC framework called as Laravel.

We will discuss some basic part of the Laravel that are needed to start the coding. It gives you the more customized way of development for the web application. Laravel is used mostly for the dependency management.

Most sites have a common set of functionality (like handling sessions, data validation, etc) and a framework is something that prevents you from re-writing this each time you create a website.

It gives the more customized way to create the database, table or to use the inbuilt libraries and functionality.

Let’s talk about what the things needed to use it and how we can use it.

Installation and Basic Configuration

1. Installation :

First, download the “Laravel” installer through the composer. composer global require “laravel/installer=~1.1” -> You have to run this command in the cmd. But this command you have to run if only the composer is installed in your system otherwise first install the composer by following commands. Make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory in your PATH so the Laravel executable is found when you run the Laravel command in your terminal.

2. Installing Composer:

Open the “Cmd terminal” in your system and run the command

curl -sS | php

if curl installed in your system otherwise run and if curl is not installed in your system then run

php -r "readfile('');" | php

then continue with the Laravel installation with the composer which command I wrote above.

Once the Laravel is installed you have to set the certain permissions to use its functionality in that.

You need to grant the web server write permissions to the app/storage directories. See the installation documentation for more details on configuration on Laravel home website. We have installed Laravel to use it using the XAMPP/ WAMP Server.

Laravel PHP Framework functionality in the web application:

1. Routing :

To get started, let’s create our first route, this file is under the app/routes.php. add the following route to the bottom of the file.

Route::get('users', function()
return 'Users!';

Now, if you hit the /users in your browser then you will see the message like Great! You’ve just created your first route.

2. View :

Next, we will create the view to display the user data in the web browser. The view is present in the folder app/views and contains the HTML of your application.

<h1>Laravel Quickstart</h1>

3. Displaying data:

Now by following above with instructions we made the user’s data and view part now, we will display the part to the user.

@foreach($users as $user)
<p>{{ $user->name }}</p>

By looking at this you wondering that where is echo statement in the code but in Laravel, you can display the data by using double curly braces. Now hit the /users in the browser and you will be able to names of your users displayed in the response.
