It was released in 1995 and is comparatively faster than others. It can be easily integrated with HTML, XML, Ajax and other available frameworks. It is quite old and difficult language to understand through and is supported by a large community. It is widely used for the large projects of the enterprise.
- It is open and very compatible with cross-platform arrangement.
- Highly used to develop the network centric mobile applications and web pages.
- It has got simple to use and unique features.
- It is object oriented and is case sensitive to variables as well as in function.
- It supports the framework and is platform independent.
PHP is an interpreted scripting language which was developed in 1995 for creating websites. It stands for Hypertext processor and is a programming language which is embedded in HTML. It is majorly used for development at the back-end. It is used to build highly interactive websites but is comparatively slow. Some of the other features of PHP is given below:
- It is open-source scripting.
- It is quite easy to integrate with the known databases like SQL, MySQL, Oracle, Sybase and more.
- Also, it can easily handle forms, save the data to respective files, gather data from different files and then also return data to the user.
- PHP runs on all the major operating systems like macOS, LINUX, Microsoft Windows etc.
Now let’s look into the features of both the languages and compare them on the given parameters which will help one to judge and select the one as per their requirement.
A) Speed and Performance
E) Community support
F) Independent from the platform factor
H) Curve of Learning
The above points shows how both the programming languages have their own specialties and one can choose either of them depending upon their requirement. And one option can be to use the combination of both which will give the users a dynamic and interactive website. So, if one is planning to have an app with a single page, or real-time application or a large project with heavy data, then one should definitely go for Node.Js. But if one is already familiar with LAMP technologies or wants to develop an e-commerce website, then one can surely go ahead with the PHP. So, guys whatever be the selection make full use of the functionalities of the respective languages.
