— I am planning on porting about 1000 lines of PHP to node JS soon


A big client is running PHP 5.6, Wordpress... I am hand crafting a website for them from scratch, making it load in under 2 seconds on every page with a virtual DOM I made

— Once we are able to launch the new site, I am going to port them over to a VPS with node

— Php also allows exactly this

— I would disagree

— You need a web server, configure it, configure PHP etc... node can be installed and spun up as fast as you can type node server.js

— Python, too

— $ npm i http-server -g
$ http-server

— You can even type the JS right into the REPL because it's so small

— And the python

— I stand corrected by myself as I just googled it and it's:

$ cd ~/public_html
$ php -S localhost:8000

— Php works standalone too now I've heard
