I was unironically asked: how to make a website with json as php? I don't wanna learn HTML, it's not a useful language

    Given the state of the JS world, my money is on someone has already done it with a npm package to turn a nested json array into a HTML structure.

    @C0D4 It's one of those moments when you hate to be right: https://npmjs.com/search/...

    @Jilano I'm slightly disappointed that that's a thing, and yet not surprised either.

    Not sure what "json as php" means (aside from it being hilarious), but to be fair you _can_ get extremely far these days with very little html knowledge. Assuming they still want to program, and you didn't just brush them off to one of a zillion website builders, stuff like Webix lets you work entirely in JS and (to a huge extent, anyway) never need to touch much html.

    It's obviously ridiculous to be ignorant of html, and I know that isn't the point of the rant, but there you go.

    (first post... woohoo!)
