Is it possible to use Laravel in a Microservices Architecture? Would it be better to use Lumen. I find that the development of Lumen is very focused and slow.
The general rule of thumb is: if you know you're going to need more than just Lumen for your application, then use Laravel.
If you're looking into running a Laravel application as a microservice, one of the problems you may run into is that the bulk of the response time will end up being the framework being booted.
Laravel News recently published an article on a package for Swoole that can help deal with this, it's worth checking out to see if it'll help you: https://laravel-news.com/laravel-swoole
