1) What is Laravel?

Laravel is a free open source “PHP framework” based on MVC design pattern. Laravel has inbuilt features like Eloquent ORM, Blade Template engine, Built-in command-line tool “Artisan”, database structure and build their migration.

2) What are the pros and cons of using the Laravel Framework?

  1. Built-in command-line tool “Artisan” for creating a code skeleton, database structure and build their migration.
  2. Laravel Framework has in-built lightweight blade template engine to speed up compiling task can create layout easily.
  3. Hassle code reusability.
  4. Eloquent ORM With PHP Active Record Implementation.

3) Explain Events in laravel?

Event:  An event class is a data container which holds the information related to the event. Source:

First, we need to add line within a folder app/provider/EventServiceProvider.php

protected $listen = [

  3. Reverse Routing : 
  4. Example: Route::get(‘login’, ‘users@login’);
  5. View: {{ HTML::link_to_action(‘users@login’) }}
  6. Query builder : The Laravel query builder uses PDO parameter binding to protect your application against SQL injection attacks. There is no need to clean strings being passed as bindings.
  7. Route caching :
  8. Database Migration :
  9. IOC (Inverse of Control) Container Or service container.

6) What is PHP artisan. List out some artisan commands?

PHP artisan is the command line interface/tool included with Laravel.

It provides a number of helpful commands that can help you while you build your application easily. Here is the list of some artisan command Example:

You should never attempt to register any event listeners, routes, or any other piece of functionality within the register method.

11) Explain the Laravel service container?

One of the most powerful features of Laravel is its Service Container. It is a powerful tool for resolving class dependencies and performing dependency injection in Laravel.

Dependency injection is a fancy phrase that essentially means class dependencies are “injected” into the class via the constructor or, in some cases, “setter” methods.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use App\User;
use App\Repositories\UserRepository;
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
class UserController extends Controller
    protected $users;
    public function __construct(UserRepository $users)
        $this->users = $users;

        $user = $this->users->find($id);
        return view('user.profile', ['user' => $user]);

12) What is a composer?

A composer is a tool for managing dependency in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries on which your project depends on and will manage (install/update) them for you. Laravel utilizes Composer to manage its dependencies.

13) What is dependency injection in Laravel?

dependency injection is a technique whereby one object supplies the dependencies of another object. A dependency is an object that can be used (a service). An injection is the passing of a dependency on a dependent object (a client) that would use it. The service is made part of the client’s state. Passing the service to the client, rather than allowing a client to build or find the service, is the fundamental requirement of the pattern.


You can do dependency injection via Constructor, setter and property injection.

Laravel furnishes a wide range of approaches to cooperate with your database, Eloquent is most remarkable of them. Every database table has a relating “Model” which is utilized to cooperate with that table. Models enable you to question for information in your tables, just as addition new records into the table.

Below is sample usage for querying and inserting new records in Database with Eloquent.

// Querying or finding records from products table where the tag is ‘new’

$products= Product::where('tag','new');
// Inserting a new record 
 $product = new Product;
 $product->title = "Iphone 7";
 $product->price = "$700";
 $product->tag= 'iphone';

16) How to enable query log in Laravel?   

Use the enableQueryLog method to enable query log in Laravel


   You can get an array of the executed queries by using getQueryLog method:

     $queries = DB::getQueryLog();

17)  How to turn off CSRF protection for a specific route in Laravel?

To turn off CRSF protection in Laravel add following codes in “app/Http/Middleware/VerifyCsrfToken.php”

/add an array of Routes to skip CSRF check
private $exceptUrls = ['controller/route1', 'controller/route2'];
 //modify this function
public function handle($request, Closure $next) {

 if ($request->is($route)) {
  return $next($request);
return parent::handle($request, $next);

18) What are the traits in Laravel?

PHP Traits are basically a gathering of strategies that you need to incorporate inside another class. A Trait, similar to a dynamic class, can’t be started up independent from anyone else. The quality is made to decrease the constraints of single legacy in PHP by empowering a designer to reuse sets of techniques unreservedly in a few free classes living in various class pecking orders.

Here is an example of a trait.

trait Sharable {
  public function share($item)
    return 'share this item';
You could then include this Trait within other classes like this:
class Post {
  use Sharable;
class Comment {
  use Sharable;

Now if you were to create new objects out of these classes you would find that they both have the share() method available:

$post = new Post;
echo $post->share(''); // 'share this item' 
$comment = new Comment;
echo $comment->share(''); // 'share this item'

19) Does Laravel support caching?

Yes, Laravel supports popular caching backends like Memcached and Redis.

By default, Laravel is configured to use the file cache driver, which stores the serialized, cached objects in the file system. For large projects, it is recommended to use Memcached or Redis.

20) Explain Laravel’s Middleware?

As the name recommends, Middleware goes about as a broker among solicitation and reaction. It is a kind of separating component. For instance, Laravel incorporates a middleware that confirms whether the client of the application is validated or not. In the event that the client is verified, he will be diverted to the landing page else, he will be diverted to the login page.

There are two types of Middleware in Laravel.

Global Middleware: will run on every HTTP request of the application.

Route Middleware: will be assigned to a specific route.

21) What is Lumen?

Lumen is PHP micro-framework that built on Laravel’s top components. It is created by Taylor Otwell. It is a perfect option for building Laravel based micro-services and fast REST API’s. It’s one of the fastest micro-frameworks available.

22) Explain Bundles in Laravel?

In Laravel, groups are additionally called bundles. Bundles are the essential method to expand the usefulness of Laravel. Bundles may be anything from an incredible method to work with dates like Carbon, or a whole BDD testing structure like Behat.In Laravel, you can make your custom bundles as well.

23) How to use the custom table in Laravel Modal?

we can use the custom table in Laravel by overriding protected $table property of Eloquent.

Below is sample uses

class User extends Eloquent{
 protected $table="my_user_table";

24) List types of relationships available in Laravel Eloquent?

One To One

One To Many

One To Many (Inverse)

Many To Many

Has_many Through

Polymorphic Relations

Many To Many Polymorphic Relations

You can read more about relationships in Laravel Eloquent from here

25) Why are migrations necessary?

Migrations are necessary because:

Without migrations, database consistency when sharing an app is almost impossible, especially as more and more people collaborate on the web app.

Your production database needs to be synced as well.

26) Provide System requirements for installation of Laravel framework?

In order to install Laravel, make sure your server meets the following requirements:

PHP >= 7.1.3

OpenSSL PHP Extension

PDO PHP Extension

28) What is passport?

Laravel as of now makes it simple to perform verification by means of customary login structures, however shouldn’t something be said about APIs? APIs regularly use tokens to confirm clients and don’t keep up session state between solicitations. Laravel makes API validation a breeze utilizing Laravel Passport, which gives a full OAuth2 server execution for your Laravel application in merely minutes. Visa is based over the League OAuth2 server that is kept up by Andy Millington and Simon Hamp.
