In the previous part of Creating a Polling Application using AngularJS and Laravel tutorial, we had covered:
- Application Directory Structure.
- Modules and Dependency Injection.
- Routing in AngularJS.
In this tutorial, we will build a single page polling web application using AngularJS and Laravel. Our application will allow the users to select one of the listed polls and submit their choice. The users will also be able to view the stats of the polls in a graphical form.
We will build the application’s front end using AngularJS, and for the data persistence, we will utilize a RESTful API which we will create using Laravel. The tutorial assumes that you have a basic understanding of AngularJS workings and familiar with concepts like: two-way data binding, scopes, directives etc. Read more…

Laravel 4 developed by Taylor Otwell, is indeed a great php framework out there. It is suitable for both small and large scale applications, and has a very active community of really helpful people. I started using laravel more or less four months ago, and I have not searched google for “the best php framework” since then.
