Since we are moving to an age of Digital Marketing, where frameworks will play an integral role. Having said that, one should understand how and why a framework is used. A framework is a tool that makes web development fast and easy for a web developer. The framework provides us with the feature of built-in functionality. 

Let it be Django web development or Laravel web development, both are used to create MVC platform-based applications at ease. Otherwise, it requires a lot of coding for an individual to complete a framework. 

Performance Comparison of Django and Laravel:

1. Speed

Django is a python-based framework. We know that Python is comparatively faster that is why this framework is also fast. It helps us by speeding up the development of web application. 

Whereas, Laravel is a PHP based framework. Eventually, it also enabled with many useful features. Due to these extra features present in Laravel, it is comparatively slower than Django. Therefore, for increasing the speed in Laravel, developers need to find a different way. But still, it is comparatively slower than Django framework.

2. Security

There are different approaches used in both frameworks mentioned above. Django offers a user authentication system. It provides a way for secure management of username and password. Further, it also helps a user in preventing common mistakes. These mistakes are generally made by the developers and can result in cross-site scripting, other cyber-attacks. 

Whereas Laravel uses hashing technique that makes sure that the password and usernames are not stored as a plain text. It uses the Bcrypt Hashing Algorithm to encrypt the password so that no one can look into that easily.

3. Scalability

The ones who have already worked with python must be known to the fact about how fast it is. Similarly, Django is also a python framework and hence it is also very fast. Due to this feature, this framework is highly scalable also. Many sites that have high traffic like Mozilla Firefox, Pinterest, Instagram, NASA uses this framework only. 

Whereas the Laravel framework is based on PHP. This comparatively makes it slower than Django. This slowness effects the framework and ultimately, it’s not highly scalable. Consequently, sites with higher traffic usually do not prefer this type of framework.

4. Templating

Both the frameworks have their own template engine. Django has a Jinja template engine. Whereas Laravel has a Blade template engine. Jinja is a high-power template engine that allows customization of filters, tags, and much more functionality. Moreover, Jinja also allows the designer to call functions so that he can provide extra functionality. Whereas Blade is a highly customizable template engine. It is also an enormously powerful tool for a designer.

5. Routing

Routing is a very necessary process in website development. However, implementing routing in Django is a highly tricky task. There is no built-in function or an API with which you can implement routing. That is why to implement routing, the designers have to use library function. 

Whereas in Laravel routing is easy to be implemented by a designer. You can use a built-in function like GET, POST, DELETE, and PATCH keyword to get your routing done. Ultimately, having a built-in function decreases the task of searching in different libraries and importing a separate library for routing.

6. Project Structure

It’s easy to manage the different applications in Django. The reason behind it is that it creates different directories for each application under a single parent directory.

Whereas Laravel does not have such feature. It is not at all good at managing multiple applications at once. This framework is a good architecture for mid-scale projects only or the projects that do not require many applications.

7. Popularity

Django is a popular web development framework. It is being used for making a website falling under the category of computer and technology, science, food, and drinks. Moreover, its a leading framework in countries like France, USA, Russia, and many more.

Whereas Laravel leads in that type of industries where the website falls under the category of entertainment, business, telecommunication, or internet industry, traveling or shopping. Eventually, it’s a leading framework in countries like the UK, China, Brazil, and around 157 more countries.

8. Admin panel

Django provides you with an easy to use admin panel. It is also easy to activate an admin panel by just using a command. The Admin panel offers you the functionality of creating a superuser. Moreover, it also helps you in manipulating the apps using admin. 

Sadly, Laravel does not provide you with any admin panel. To get an admin panel in Laravel you must use some external libraries, or you must make a library from scratch.


Each one of the frameworks has its own advantages and disadvantages. That is why it is preferred to choose that framework that fulfils your purpose. Only a website development company understands and befit the platform without compromising on quality and features.
