Laravel vs Core PHP: Which One is Better?

Laravel vs Core PHP: Which One is Better? This is a subjective question. For any web application, web development platforms are like the bread in sandwiches. They are the base on which sandwiches, here web applications, web services and software are (spread) built. So we must choose the best one for the powerful basement.

In this article, we are discussing about the pros and cons of Core PHP & Laravel framework.

A framework is a ‘skeleton’ on which the designers and developers build unique applications with desired features. Developers also prefer Laravel as it offers a vast ecosystem, which brings instant hosting and deployment platform, along with screen cast tutorials hosted by the official Laravel website.

Platform Comparison – Laravel Vs Core Php

1StructureMVC architectureModular structure (based on modules)
2Code reusabilitySupport code reusabilitySupport code reusability,

Faster development

3FlexibilityStrict rules of developmentMore code level flexibility
4SpeedEnhances performance and accuracyFully depends on the code base developed
5Code consistencyProvide code level consistencyNo
7CachingLaravel supports cache backends like Memcached and Redis out-of- the-box.

You can also configure multiple cache configurations.

No default caching mechanism
8SecurityDefault authorization and authentication systems enables securityNo default security rules. Need to integrate while development.
9External DependencyThere will be an external dependency for your application (depends on external packages)No external dependency
10Data communicationAuthorized via security token, this prevents posting data from other domainsNo authorized data communication by default.
11RisksLaravel itself prevents all the security vulnerabilities, SQL Injection, cross scripting attacks etc.Need to apply our own security rules to prevent vulnerabilities.
12Handling exception and configuration errorsDefault error and exception handling facility.No error and exception handling facility by default.
13Authentication and Authorization SystemsDefault and secure authentication system is available. This is considered as one of the best over the framework.No default authentication system is available
14Technical VulnerabilitiesHelps to secure the web application by protecting it against the most serious security risks: SQL injection, cross-site request forgery, and cross-site scripting.No default security system is available. We can use libraries/ packages to make it secure and protect against vulnerabilities
15Error and Exception HandlingError and exception handling is already configuredNo default error and exception handling is available.
16Integration with Mail ServicesProvides a clean, simple API over the popular SwiftMailer library.No default mailer is available. We can choose the best according to email content


Both Core PHP and Laravel frameworks are built to develop websites and web applications. However, the frameworks will simplify the development process and reduce the work required in creating wonderful applications.

The main reason why people love Laravel is that it is easy to code, and you get other benefits like documentation support, MVC support and reliable database. If you are a developer looking to make a mark, Laravel couldn’t be a bad choice. However, if you prefer to go by the popularity level, then Core PHP is definitely several steps ahead of the other framework.
