Node.js vs. PHP

Node.js vs. PHP | Facebook Social Media | Scoop.it

PHP is not going to disappear soon, but its position is being undermined even further by the nascent Node.js. When the Internet exploded in the 2000′s, PHP was the thing ”all the cool kids” did.

Over the years, PHP and its apps became vulnerable to security threats (e.g., SQL injections), lacked a centralized packaging registry (was Composer inspired by Node Package Manager?), had an inconsistent API and suffered from subpar performance. It’s easy to argue that there are better alternatives to PHP, for example Ruby on Rails and Django, however nothing is as approachable as Node.js.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Node.js, or who have heard of it but can’t quite grasp the concept, I like to say that it is functionally similar to the PHP + Apache or ASP + IIS stacks. Nowadays, it is also gaining momentum.

Many people, whether software engineers or entrepreneurs, are often faced with the decision: “What tech stack should I use?” In this article, I’ll try to compare PHP and Node.js using an apples-to-apples approach, looking at the question from different angles including:

* Syntax

* Context switch

* Modules
* Ecosystem
* Frameworks
* Real-time apps
* Database apps
* Third-party services apps
* Web servers
* Hosting
* Performance
