It can be fascinating to want to rebuild legacy applications from scratch, but if you’ve ever tried it on an application of substantial complexity you know it can be a trap. Migrating or redeveloping your legacy application to a new framework is a very tricky argument to make. Applications that have been in production for a long time usually meet the customer’s requirements well enough to keep businesses resilient and are complex for a reason: they’re often the only source of revelation about business requirements when the original stakeholders and developers have long since moved on. Complexity grows over time as apps expand to handle more edge cases, and breaking down years of work introduces unnecessary risks while usually taking years of its own to complete. For the commercial projects, it puts a real cost and time on the migration. You have to hire several developers and pay them and it involves many complexities and a lot of time.

The good news is, you don’t have to completely rewrite your legacy app to start using new Laravel features today. You can migrate your application to the Laravel framework, which is a robust php framework introduced by Tylor Otwell that offers a set of tools, resources, exceptional built-in features, and components to develop modern and efficient PHP applications. With a comprehensive ecosystem leveraging its built-in features, and a variety of consistent packages and extensions, Laravel has seen its reputation grow fastly in the past few years, and many developers adopting it as their framework of choice for a smooth development process.

Laravel has two immediate advantages: you can develop all new features immediately on Laravel as well as use Laravel built-in features and facades within the legacy framework. When utilizing Laravel, the real cost is buried in day-to-day development, there’s no promised flag-day deadline to miss, and there’s no frustrating feature freeze. So you can easily transform your legacy applications to become more agile and efficient.
