?! Where does this comparison make sense?
Laravel is a fully-fledged MVC framework, where Node is just a JavaScript execution environment. A fair comparison would be between Laravel and Express.

And again, Express is just a barebone router with some template engines, whereas Laravel is a battery-included framework with a service container (as you mentioned), a config manager, a default ORM, a testing library and so on. It's more like Angular in this sense, but for back-end development.

Honestly I have a poor idea why Laravel is shipping with Vue now, since one of the most powerful things in Laravel is indeed the routing system. The choice itself to ship with yet another library - and purely a front-end library on top of that, since it can't be used for SSR - is quite against the current general philosophy to be as minimal as possible.

But The author didn’t mention….It seems that they just have a problem on learning javascript itself………….which is…..
