On the Laravel Daily site there's a post that looks to answer a question often posed about any framework but, in this case, about Laravel - can Laravel be used for big enterprise apps?
Yesterday I’ve listened to a new Laravel Podcast episode with Taylor Otwell, Jeffrey Way and Matt Stauffer – and they (finally) talked about creating big apps with Laravel, lately this question is asked a lot by everyone. So is Laravel “fit” or “mature enough” for big projects? Since the podcast guys don’t provide a transcript, and listening to 50 minutes can be an overkill, I decided to write a summary, quoting the conversation and dividing the answers into more readable format like Q&A and bullet points, also relevant links. So, let’s dive in!
The post is then divided up into a few of the topics involved in Laravel being used for larger applications:
- What is a big app?
- So can Laravel be used for big apps?
- People are irrational
- Enterprise world
- Any examples of big Laravel apps?
- It’s not about the framework
- Ok, so how to build big apps?
For each point there's a comment from the episode with their own response (sometimes more than one, just depending on the subject).
