  12. 12. Further, It offers:  MVC Architecture  Rapid Development  Restful routing with simple Application Closures  Better Code Foundation  Future Ready Framework
  13. 13. Ready to use bundles in Laravel  Cashier: It was introduced in Laravel 4.2 and provides an efficient interface for the management of billing service provided by Stripe.  SSH : It was proposed with Laravel 4.1 to allow the programmatic execution of CLI commands using SSH on remote server.  Scheduler : It was an addition to the Artisan introduces in Laravel 5.0, which allow the programmatic scheduling of tasks.  Flysystem: Introduced in Laravel 5.0, It is a file system abstraction layer which allows the local file system and Cloud based storage service to be used transparently.  Socialite : It is an optional package introduced in Laravel 5.0 to provide the simplified mechanism for OAuth authentication. e.g. Facebook, Google, Twitter, GitHUB and Bitbucket.
