Laravel vs ExpressJS, what to pick for a front-end VueJS developer?

Hello, i chose VueJS because of simplicity, because he’s designed to be easy to grasp and to use, so i want the same advantages from backend technology too, which one should i choose then?

I don’t consider other node.js frameworks because of very low popularity

If you know PHP then Laravel, otherwise Express.

I think both would be a good choice. I’ve found that Express pairs with Vue nicely (I used that combo for my voting app), but also understand that the Laravel community has embraced Vue as a top javascript framework.

For me, the main cost of Express (or any Node backend) is the added complexity of non-blocking code. As a Javascript developer, the main advantage is that I don’t need to venture out and learn PHP or the ecosystem that goes along with it.
