Around 5 months ago, I spent 3 whole months developing a social network... But made a huge mistake­čśĹ


Now I'm rewriting that social network from scratch in NodeJS

    I'd use a combination of node and php. Php for the general api and node for anything requiring real time data from/to both the client and server.

    You do know Facebook was also written in PHP, right? It's a nice and fast language. I call bullshit on your story.

    Php is fast, reliable and has good performance, why'd you hate it? Node would be worse imo except for that it works great with sockets.

    @thelegend200 You seem to not have used the current versions. Be so kind and do so.

    What's wrong with PHP?

    @PrivateGER The reason I regret writing it in PHP is because PHP doesn't have good support for websockets, and almost every social network needs websockets for chat, notifications and much more stuff

    @thelegend200 Then you use a second node backend for that and don't rewrite the whole thing. That's just stupid.
Your Job Suck?
