Laravel Development Agency

Laravel is a PHP framework that aims to take out the hardships of website development with many beneficial features and functions. This framework allows us to easily develop web applications at a quicker rate than the standard frameworks. 

There are frequent changes and updates to the Laravel framework. This allows it to be up-to-date with the latest security, bug fixes, patches, and so forth. With this in mind, the Laravel framework makes keeping up to date with cutting edge PHP features and security patches easier than ever. This is to give users peace of mind when using the framework. With hundreds of millions of downloads, it’s not just us who know how impressive Laravel is.

Although WordPress and Laravel are separate frameworks, FireCask is able to provide integrations. These allow direct communication between these two powerful frameworks. This has been utilised to great effect with our work on the WhatTyre website. A custom Laravel API was connected to a custom WordPress plugin that populates posts, pages and content using the data from Laravel.

Why come to FireCask for Laravel Development?

At FireCask, our development team has a number of years of Laravel experience under their belts. To date, we have developed hundreds of bespoke web applications using Laravel. Because of this, you’ll be sure that we’ll be able to develop the site with confidence in the features and functions it’ll include. Should a custom API secured via OAuth be required or a simple admin CMS be required, we will work with you to create a tailored solution that matches your needs.

We are dedicated to all types of online and website security. Laravel has built-in security measures to help us prevent Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and MySQL Injection protections.

How Laravel development services works

Laravel uses a design pattern called Model-View-Controller (MVC). This means that the application is divided into three parts: the model, the view and the controller. The shape of the data your application operates on is represented by the model. When you have a number of users, each with a list of posts, that is what is known as the model.

The controller is then used to talk to the model to retrieve information for the posts page. If a user wants to make a new post, the controller will be used to update the model. This is how most of the service is controlled. The information can then be used to construct a view. This is responsible for displaying the user interface. 

The model can then be plugged into the template formed by the view and manipulated by the controller. This is how you can look at all of your application’s HTML components.

This entire structure can then be used by Laravel to run custom applications and websites. The Blade templating engine used by Laravel allows HTML to be broken into sections and managed by the controller. The controller essentially acts as a mediator between the model and the view.

Laravel has been a game-changer in the world of web development. It has made building web applications faster, easier, and more effective. It’s certain that future updates in Laravel will only make web development improve further.

At FireCask, we have a skilled team that is well versed in everything Laravel. We will ensure that the Laravel development process is effective and thorough, as we work with you to create a custom solution that matches your needs.

Why does your business need Laravel developers?

Many people consider Laravel development to be the greatest framework for businesses and web application development. There are a number of advantages of using the Laravel framework that are often overlooked.

High security

Online security has never been more important than in today’s digital world and it is important that clients are confident that their information is safe. Laravel development provide the highest level of security to protect users. They typically protect against hacking methods, such as forgery attempts, SQL injection attacks and more.

Unrivalled features

The features on a website or application can make or break it. There is a desire amongst users for streamlined, simple and convenient features that make the experience of using a website easier. Laravel allows you to do this, as it includes some of the most advanced capabilities available in any PHP framework. There is no better option if you’re searching for features that will benefit both users and your business.

Cross-device flexibility

There are several frameworks available that demand you to change your technology. However, Laravel does not force you to do this. Laravel development gives you unparalleled versatility across all of your devices, including computers, phones, tablets and more. Not only can this improve user experience, but also increase conversion rates.

Handle high level of traffic

When you build your business, you’ll need a framework that can handle large volumes of data quickly. Using Laravel with load balancing allows it to handle large amounts of traffic. This also makes the process quicker, safer and more efficient. One of the main perks is that it allows you to do this without having to pay large fees.

Multilingual application

One factor that limits an application’s success is the lack of multilingual options. Many websites and applications require a global reach and risk missing out if they cannot deliver their content in specific languages. Multilingual options are built into the Laravel framework. This allows communication between more people and can increase target audience.

How can we track the success of Laravel development?

Laravel development should ensure that your website is at constant high performance. Websites that perform well and load quickly have become the standard for determining how successful web development has been. Search engines also often prioritise faster websites over slower alternatives. Laravel will have you covered by providing a high-speed experience for users.

The amount of traffic your website receives can be an indicator of how successful Laravel development is. To have a successful website, you must be able to maintain a large amount of traffic. Laravel aims to ensure that your website remains strong regardless of any spike in traffic.

Laravel app developers are able to run tests to discover any flaws or bugs in the functionality of a website. The user experience should be improved because of this, and it is a great way to determine if the Laravel development of a site has been a success. The built-in tools mean that developers don’t have to use any other software to conduct these tests.

Our team is well versed in the Laravel framework and will be able to provide you with a website that improves user experience. We guarantee that your website will perform at a constantly high performance level.
