How to improve the speed and performance of Laravel application?

Some tips for speed optimization of the Laravel website 

Google Maps or some other 3rd party tools might generate some errors that in turn, decide your speed. Also, heavy CSS and JavaScript needed to be refectories to make them smaller. 

The best way is to use a template that is well coded and does not use many plug-in.

Configure web servers. 

Your web server needs to be configured properly to improve the speed of the web application. What a web server does? It controls gzip and cache settings that are required for a high ranking score. What to do for web server configuration?

For caching, enable caching on JS/CSS/Images for at least 7 days

For zipping, you need to zipped all your files to improve the page speed score. Hire Laravel developers from a leading Laravel development company who have in-depth knowledge and experience of configuring web servers. Ask them about it while taking their interviews. 

Laravel configuration:

For Laravel application configuration, you need to do the following things.

  • Minify CSS/JS It is very easy and can be done by using tools such as Elixir. You can also do it by manually magnifying and combining your CSS/JS.

  • Cache 3rd party resources The main issue arising here is that Google Analytics sets a low cache time and Page Speed Insights requires a long cache time. You need to catch the script locally temporary to improve the page speed. 
  • Templates putting up into Laravel Once you have selected the template for the website; you need to put it in Laravel. First of all, you need to copy assets.

Those are good points but apply to almost any application. In general, Laravel applications can be made faster by caching the blade templates and routes. I've seen a lot of performance difference by caching the routes.
