Until now, I had been maintain two Laravel applications - first, the main application where business logic is written and second, the API endpoints which simply queues the jobs for the main application to process. I always found the API application to be slow for the simple things it was doing. Now, I've got the perfect candidate to build my API endpoint application. :)
Personally, I am a big fan of the Slim PHP micro-framework, but from the looks of it, Lumen is even better. Looking forward to using it in my next API project
Congrats on the launch, @taylorotwell! I am wondering what is the difference between full-fledged Laravel and it's smaller sister Lumen. It would be nice to know what's the advantage and where the performance increase comes from. Thanks for another great product!
Any chance we could see the code used for those specific benchmarks?
As an avid Laravel fan I can say this is amazing.
