Node.js vs PHP: A Classic Duel Between Old Friends
Since the Node.js launch developers have much more choice of which frameworks they use. This ever-lengthening list includes React, Express, Angular, Vue and Meteor among others. Of course, with all that choice, the decision making process becomes more difficult.
However, it is also true to say that much of the hype that happens after a new launch eventually fades and PHP remains a large part of what we see online each day. At current estimates there are still 40% of internet pages that start with PHP and actually the code is continually rewritten. The PHP of today is not the same as the PHP of 5 years ago, it is continually evolving and being reborn.
PHP’s is fast and getting faster in part due to the same types of techniques that brought us Node.js. The latest iterations — PHP 7.2 and the HHVM are now able to give the same great optimizations that can be found with Node.js. In addition you have HHVM’s Hack — a really clever PHP dialect that adds support for multiple sophisticated programming features.
