    Technically speaking, declaring a framework or technology as good or bad is a paradox.
    It doesn't make any sense.

    It is good if it would solve your problem.

    That's it.

  • Yes, it is worth learning.

    Opinion about the framework: It is a very promising framework with certain characteristic features which makes it unique. It is very strong as far the cyber threats are concerned and a very systematic framework. Almost any kind of application can be built using Laravel.

    Tell us something about what do you want to build and what is your background i.e. do you already know PHP and databases ? If you want to build something small maybe a microframework is better solution. I would not recommend starting to learn PHP by jumping into big PHP framework, but it's just my opinion.

    Laravel is great! I'm not saying these features are unique, but:

    - You can use a CLI tool to create migrations, and seed databases.
    - You can use Eloquent to interact with your databases, using Models (really great fun).
    - You can create custom requests, for form validation and pass them to a function in your controller.
    - Routes are extremely flexible and can be grouped.
    - It has access to a ton of composer packages which can be easily integrated into your project.
    - There are many skeleton templates available to begin working with straight away and adapting to your needs.
    - You have a choice between using a templating engine or pure PHP, which is as easy as specifying the file name.
    - It's very modern and frequently updated.
    - The documentation is great, it's just by many and there are lots of videos on Youtube.

    I'd say it's a great Framework to learn, and it's actually really fun!

      Where can you get skeleton templates from?

    I have build a few sites using Laravel. The learning curve can be quite steep, but Laracasts.com is an invaluable resource for training.

    I use Themeforest for templates. You need to buy HTML templates, and then convert them yourself to use with Laravel.

    In my opinion Laravel is the best. Maybe because it was my first mvc or its the one I work with most of the times

    Laravel is the most popular framework in those days.
    I found that Codeigniter is still more easier and faster to use.

    Cheers.

    Go Codeigniter. I am 12 years experienced with php and I am telling you CI is the fastest, easiest and the most reliable!

    Laravel's learning curve is too long and the ******z keep upgrading every 2 weeks.

    Codeigniter version 3

    I have worked with many: Zend, CakePHP, CodeIgniter, YII... But since i tried Laravel a couple years ago i haven't touch any other framework and i never will :-)

    It has everything you need:

    - MVC structure
    - Database migrations
    - Events
    - Queues
    - Scheduled Tasks
    - and many other things

    Plus, it is very easy to learn and understand.
