Laravel Development Services (PHP Framework)

Our work   Free quote  

To create a fully-functioning, professional web application, you need a sturdy framework that you can rely on. 

At Scorchsoft, we use Laravel, which is one of the most trusted web app back-end PHP frameworks on the market. It’s versatile, reliable, and equipped with everything we need to build smart and seamless web applications.

Well-Structured MVC Framework

Laravel bases their framework on the frequently used MVC structure, also known as Model-View-Controller. To give you a brief overview of how this works, here’s the role of each part of the structure:

  • Controller: Deals with user requests and retrieves data
  • Model: Retrieve information by communicating with the database
  • View: Renders pages for the user

Laravel’s MVC is one of the most efficiently structured and easy to use, making web application building a smooth process. Rather than spending time dealing with difficult architecture, we can jump right into the meat of your application, delivering the finished product sooner. The code is also future-proof, meaning that we can run new technologies created after your web app without having to change your code, which is useful for upgrades. This architecture brings consistency to your web app, is easily scalable, and gives better control over how your application looks at the front-end.

Plenty of Extensions

Laravel benefits from a large community of developers. One of the perks of this is a huge range of open source extensions that developers have created and shared, like integration with payment providers and authorisation systems for secure login. If you need a specific feature in your app, we can check the open source network first to see if that feature has already been developed. If it has, we’ll use it in your app to significantly cut down on development time. These extensions will also be more secure, used by many, and actively maintained to ensure they keep up with updates and emerging

Impressive Speed

The speed delivered by Laravel is impressive and should suit all web application needs. From user request to rendering, the process is seamless and super fast, adding to the brilliant experience that this framework delivers. There are also ways that we can optimise Laravel and improve its performance, including removing unused services and loading static files from the CDN server. With our knowledge and Laravel’s impressive foundations, we can create a web app that works at incredible speeds.

Full-Proof Security

It’s vital that your web app is secure, especially if you’re going to take payments or store data. Our team will put as many roadblocks between your web app and data breaches as possible, and Laravel helps us do that. Their framework is always recommended for anyone looking for robust security. They incorporate CSRF to prevent third-party attacks, password hashing, data encryption and much more to keep hackers at bay.

Message Queue Capabilities

Message queues on Laravel allow applications and services to communicate securely. They use ‘messages’, which are essentially packets of data, that are transmitted from one application to another, and the message can then be stored safely until the receiving application is ready. So, if there’s a problem with your network or between applications, no messages will be lost whilst the issue is fixed. This helps reduce data loss in your systems and keep everything up and running even if some processes fail.

Caching

In a world where everyone’s on the go and data isn’t always available, caching is essential. Laravel’s caching allows users to view data that they’ve already loaded even when they’re offline, making sure that nothing stops your audience from viewing your web app. Having a cache is also a great way to boost your loading speeds, ensuring user satisfaction with every interaction.

Progressive Web Application Compatible

Progressive web applications (also known as PWAs) are becoming an increasingly popular web application, blending the benefits of websites and mobile applications for a completely new interface. At Scorchsoft, we think PWAs are brilliant and the fact that Laravel can be used in them is a big bonus. The Laravel PHP Framework can be used as a back end API, feeding the front end with data. This structure is compatible with popular JavaScript frameworks like React, Vue, and Angulay.
