Laravel - History

Laravel was developed and created by Taylor Otwell as an attempt to give an excellent substitute for the older PHP framework named CodeIgniter. And this was because CodeIgniter did not offer such great features as support for built-in customer authentication and proper user authorization. In June 2011 Laravel released its first beta version, and later in the same month, Laravel 1 got released. Other than authentication, Laravel also has built-in support for localization, views, dealing with sessions, routing the request to the specific controller, and other amazing features.
