I'm pretty happy with how my Node apps are structured, my code is clean and maintainable. I just have to spend too much time implementing commodity features like authentication, authorization, password resets, data migrations, seeding, social login, etc. With Laravel, I get those for free out of the box.

If the Node community ever gets a batteries-included framework that is as popular as Laravel or Rails, I'll be happy to use that. I like writing JavaScript a lot more than PHP.
