Sometimes I wonder if PHP is even more comfy than Perl.

I mean, at least that language knows the difference between actual arrays and hashes instead of just using ordered hash maps for everything, but treating them completely differently when they keys are numeric and form a gapless Range from 0 to to the number of items - 1.

And the standard Library also can't be much worse. Regex is built in... Where does PHP excel, compared to it?

- Support: there's always somebody who know the answer to your problem.
- Cheaper hosting
- New actually usable libraries poping up all the time: perl has great libs but diminishing userbase so inovation halted at least until the perl 6 meme becomes reality.
- Easier to hire codemonkeys: even teenagers know the language.
- Easier to hire people who actually know what they are doing: perl gurus are dying from old age while it's easy to find relatively young php gurus with 10+ years of experience.

PHP is a slow as shit language.

However, it is also really, really uncomfortable for web development, despite being made for it.

That is why Frameworks in PHP are a little problematic. Yes, of course you should use them. Unlike PHP, they don't make it easy to have huge security holes in your application. Unlike raw PHP, they make it easy to handle requests in a structured manner. You actually get good, tested components to handle common things. They're not full of surprises like the PHP standard library.

However, PHP being a slow as fuck language is a huge problem. These frameworks are abstracting much, but abstractions in PHP are incredibly expensive. Each function call, each class instantiation, even implemented interfaces add a rather significant overhead, and you get tons of those with every request. Who would want every request, even those that don't even hit the database, to take more than 150 milliseconds?

what the fuck man, "python" and "ruby" are only now catching up with php when it comes to serving webpages to a huge number of users. ruby performance was absolute garbage until 1.9, which was largely ignored for years because of the gem breakage.

for the people reading this:
don't see this post as a turn off, you can use python and ruby and still have a big website with milions of accesses just fine, but you'll have to work on making it fast for your users. there are tons of tools and methodologies to help you with that. so just use what you feel like using and don't go with /g/ memes.

Node is crazy awesome, if I wasn't hellbent on writing my own framework I'd definitely be using it.

C#

>>51470146
>Who would want every request, even those that don't even hit the database, to take more than 150 milliseconds?
150milliseconds? Ohohohoh, try 1 millisecond, that's the average response time of a well implemented C# web server. Also, node too (did I mention that node is actually pretty freaking awesome?).

>>
>>51470687
I have little conception about what you're talking about because I'm likely not in your timezone, let alone at your workplace, let alone from that specific meeting you're referring to.

My main argument for node is that it can handle around 2000 requests a second and most PHP implementations struggle for triple digits. As >>51470082 pointed out, the best reasons for using PHP is that everyone else is using PHP, which by itself is a ridiculous argumentum ad populum.

>The younger devs here come up all the time with "lets use this groundbreaking tool to help us with X, Y and Z"
I actually totally understand when it comes to front-end frameworks. If you feel "too old" to write good code, here is something you should recognise:
#include <iostream>
#include "fcgio.h"

using namespace std;

int main(void) {
streambuf * cin_streambuf = cin.rdbuf();
streambuf * cout_streambuf = cout.rdbuf();
streambuf * cerr_streambuf = cerr.rdbuf();
FCGX_Request request;
FCGX_Init();
FCGX_InitRequest(&request, 0, 0);
while (FCGX_Accept_r(&request) == 0) {
fcgi_streambuf cin_fcgi_streambuf(request.in);
fcgi_streambuf cout_fcgi_streambuf(request.out);
fcgi_streambuf cerr_fcgi_streambuf(request.err);
cin.rdbuf(&cin_fcgi_streambuf);
cout.rdbuf(&cout_fcgi_streambuf);
cerr.rdbuf(&cerr_fcgi_streambuf);
cout << "Content-type: text/html\r\n"
<< "\r\n"
<< "<html>\n"
<< " <head>\n"
<< " <title>Hello, World!</title>\n"
<< " </head>\n"
<< " <body>\n"
<< " <h1>Hello, World!</h1>\n"
<< " </body>\n"
<< "</html>\n";
}
cin.rdbuf(cin_streambuf);
cout.rdbuf(cout_streambuf);
cerr.rdbuf(cerr_streambuf);

return 0;
}

This is what pure code without any frameworking should look like. Nowadays, it's even what PHP looks like when you go deep enough.

>You can't build a web dev team of C coders, it will fall apart after a week.
No, it won't, it was done all the time before runtimes became popular.

>The main bottleneck in http requests is the database access
No it's not, plenty of databases are real fast, like redis or mongo.

>incorrect cache implementation.
pfft, not even Microsoft knows how to implement a cache correctly. Provided you have a quick way to load and store hashes, as well as a quick way to hash, it's reasonably infeasible that caching is your bottleneck. In actual fact, reading and writing to a network stream is extremely tolling, so if you can get away with writing 0 message content and a 304 you're better off than writing kilobytes of data with a 200.

PHP was never meant to be more than WordPress scripting. You weren't seriously meant to use it at your serious big shot company, depending on the era you were meant to use C++ or Java or C#.

That's what's epic about node: it's just as fast as what I just mentioned, or rather fast enough for people to stop caring how fast it is, and it's not a bigboy language that makes people think their team is going to "fall apart" if they use it.

Seriously, who the fuck is your workplace hiring? C++ is taught to all engineers.

>>
>>51471056
that's like comparing morbidly obese to moderately overweight. both frameworks take a non-trivial amount of time to even load and the performance is significant worse than hand-writing dom manipulation code.

simulacra.js is actually faster than appending innerHTML (not that it's the most efficient way to update the dom, just a comparison), because it provides "offline" mutations by default, working with dom nodes that exist in memory but not in a live tree.

Well, popularity is THE selling point for PHP. There are lots of better languages out there but PHP is just "good enough" and already used in a bazilion places so adoption of other things is hard as fuck.

What good is for a business if it uses the best language ever yet hits a wall every time a new issue pops up or, even worse, can't hire any experienced programmer?

How many places have replaced Linux/BSD with plan9?

>>51471148
Well I have an entire chain of tools working in my favor, maybe that's why things aren't so bad for me. My "vendor.js" has jquery, react, react-dom, moment and pikaday and is 1.6MB in development mode but ~250kb in production. There's some aggressive caching too so after the first load the user only really downloads it when something changes or when the browser cache is cleared.
>>
>>51471228
>Well, popularity is THE selling point for PHP.
That would be fine, except it's PHP's ONLY selling. You wouldn't use it at all if it wasn't popular because it wouldn't have any strong points at all if it wasn't popular, again, argumentum ad populum: the language.

>can't hire any experienced programmer?
There are plenty of better languages which are similarly popular. Beyond a few disgruntled children "falling apart" from big boy languages, Java and C# are both popular and have the potential to look elegant.

>How many places have replaced Linux/BSD with plan9?
That comparison would be like comparing C# with Vala, with PHP being Windows server.

>My "vendor.js" has jquery, react, react-dom, moment and pikaday and is 1.6MB in development mode but ~250kb in production

i work with react + redux + webpack + babel on a daily basis and it's total clusterfuck.

also when you've got to debug and look through react's shitty stack traces and dig through their 40k loc codebase, good luck. it's a pile of unnecessary, bloated abstraction created by "Senior Front-end Engineers/Architects" at facebook whose job seems to be to push needlessly complicated shit on average to mediocre webdevs.

I don't doubt you see it that way.

A good design strategy is to separate code that's for visual/display and code that's for data storage/handling, everything in the middle is in limbo. If you're handling display code with php, you might be doing it wrong.

oh, yeah do that

if you imagine the front end like a theatre play or something, php should set up the backdrop, the props, the actors. the setting in general.
to make the actors jump around and sing etc, javascript is the way to go.

swapping the roles between js and php is a head ache for everyone, for the dev and for the poor end user who has to actually use your frankenstein ui
>>
>>51473035
but that's how a lot of sites work today.
front end entirely in javascript which just talks to the backend over json.

>>51473058
But then the backend is only the script.
>>
>>51473091
eh, script? what you mean?
>>
>>51472782
But it's actually not... So many people will tell you that despite being designed specifically for it, despite being a popular language for it, php is a bad web language.

Meanwhile, Microsoft and Oracle put a lot of work in their web libraries, they're extremely mature as well as performant, whereas your attitude towards a language that wasn't intended to compete with either is not. Php is great for your wanky WordPress site, but that's the end of it. Try running a 10,000 person service with it and it'll fall apart.

hmm that is true. it really depends on what you're going for, how dynamic you want things.

i still stand by my statement that js should mostly be used for event handling, not structuring your document. js feels like a very "hacky" language when it comes to doing some heavy changes to the dom. if you initialize things correctly from the server, you'll be making your life a lot easier.

all it does is exchange data between an API and then renders using javascript, the site never refreshes or reloads, thus you can have an element persistant.

Question about Single Page Applications

I've written several HTML pages, and several Javascript applications, for a Javascript class I decided to take.

All of these pages have their html, css and assets in an html folder, and their scripts in a scripts folder.

This made it easy for my to write a little server in node that put together a homepage with hyperlinks to each file, which I thought was neat.

Anyways...

Would it be overkill or stupid to try to make a single page application that shows any of these pages? Say rather than taking the user to /html/somepage.html, when a button/link/nav is clicked, maybe a central div that takes up most of the screen is just updated. I think this is what iframes are for?

The advantage here would be that I'd only have to load the new content and the navigation elements wouldn't needed to be reloaded.

Bad idea?
>>
>>51480129
From what I know about single page application :

When someone get to your website, you send a minimal HTML page (just the central div you talk about) and a JS script.

Then everything is done by the script with AJAX calls; a GET/POST request that answer with JSON.

With this json, the script rebuild the view with DOM shits and shats.

So your buttons are not links anymore but JS functions.

Not sure if right or accurate, but it's a reply.

$(toDo).each(function(i, v) {
$.when(v()).done(function() {
console.log('Done with toDo[' + i + ']');
});
})


Basically each element of the array has a function that returns whatever $.ajax returns, which I've been told is a promise. Hopefully this makes the loop "wait" without blocking the page's UI.

>>
>>51480129
>Would it be overkill or stupid to try to make a single page application that shows any of these pages?
Yes.

To put it not so eloquently, SAP is great for in page apps but not the web pages themselves, since that would break navigation. So if you had a game, a chat/forum thing, a tool for doing such and such, please do SAP.

Meanwhile some of the worst sites posted on /wdg/ are SAPs, purely by accident you can press the back button and lose your place. Its very unpleasant.

>>51480635
The order thing makes it difficult, you can't tell when a request finishes and so you can't force it into order. You could call one request from the other, but that would be slow. You actually asked a challenging question.

Alternatively, create a data structure and load content into it and allow the final request to fire a function that actually presents that content into the view, you could even order that data structure before presentation so that the order of the finishing requests doesn't matter. The tricky here is knowing "which" request is the last, maybe you could have a simple global variable that counts the number of completed requests?

The way I fixed this was actually by sending more information from my backend, so I didn't have to send multiple requests. I couldn't find a way to rectify the timing of Ajax requests either.

Yes, if it's only a few hundred requests slower than node (for comparison, node gets 2000 requests a second on my pc) it's not bad as far as performance goes: your users won't have the "this site sucks" feeling you get with slow backends.

i watched a tutorial for a 200 dollar course i got free on Udemy and the guy says how hes been a web dev for 10 years meanwhile hes making mistakes while coding, then ends a video and continues the next one with the fixed code and just says "use this instead"

There are several important things for application benchmarking:
- How fast can a language deliver a page. If you need to do tons of calculations, then C#, Go, Java and other compiled languages are better suited for the job.
- How many requests can be completed at the same time. For extreme concurrent tasks, node.js, Go and Elixir/Erlang are good. I wonder how C# vs Java do here.
- How well do the database queries perform, and how the database connection does. This is always the main bottleneck.
- How fast is the network between the client and the webserver. Most important websites have CDN's and servers around the world.

Most websites do not need optimization over any of these items. If they need to, they can switch to a faster language than Ruby, PHP or Python. Twitter was written on Ruby for a while. Reddit rests over thousands of Python servers.

Oh, and Wordpress is a bloated mess, benchmarking it won't give good results without caching.

By making connections fast, but every thing else slow... I'm screaming fraud. To be honest I don't even believe my own 7k benchmark because it too feels like fraud.

>- How many requests can be completed at the same time. For extreme concurrent tasks, node.js, Go and Elixir/Erlang are good. I wonder how C# vs Java do here.
Actually C# since 4.5 excels here and has a lot of concurrency features JavaScript is only just getting. This is why I'm thinking fraud: I added more threading and now my backend is magically faster? It's possible that apache bench is accepting the wrong response per each request, in which case it'd explain why the last request sometimes times out. Fraud.

>- How well do the database queries perform, and how the database connection does. This is always the main bottleneck.
Still arguing this is inconsequential. Provided you're not squeamish about serialisation, you can achieve the same effects of a database with the dictionary data structures in java and C#. You can actually walk into a network engineering lecture and the professor will even talk about how rolling your own is better for both performance and security.

This is all the individual users choices and so not my problem. What I can test is the purely networking elements, which I have.

Also, its not always so simple to just use another language. If you start in ruby, you're stuck in ruby until you man up and rewrite it in a "fast" language. Personally I see modern C# as one of the simplest languages, when people talk about interpreted languages, its usually because it's easier to write in. I see that's the case against C or C++, but far from true for C#.

So why not just start from a "fast" language to begin with?

You can do a nav bar any way you want.

The most common method right now is to make an unordered list of items and add some links inside each. Then make each item display as inline-block and float it, if I'm not mistaken.

Or you could just make it using a bunch of inline divs, like a caveman. If it works in the same way, sure, you could do that, right?
>>
>>51481947
It really depends on what you want.
If you want a great looking website, and don't care that it's made with a common framework, take a look at sites made with wordpress. It's the #1 blog/personal site framework, open source, and uses PHP for the back-end.

I've seen some very nice looking sites made with wordpress, by people who can't program for shit. So if you got someone from this thread who uses wordpress you could expect a very polished product.

Using a CMS like wordpress (content management system) is probably what you want because it gives you the ability to post more content to the site without having to program anything; it gives you options, like facebook, myspace, or instagram, to upload things. It's like, blogging software.

just go google wordpress and come back

Most people who only do front end are. If he's teaching CSS, there's a possibility he's that guy whose contribution stops short at picking colours, making a logo and bullying the real programmer into implementing bizarre effects. My advice to completely skip learning how to git gud at design is to simply copy and otherwise keep it simple, programmers are one of the few people in the world who actually benefit from the aesthetic known as minimalism (boring music, horrible visual art, plain architecture, but amazing websites and apis).

Back end developers talk about some extremely deep concepts relating to apis, which actually translates to other applications of programming, not just webdev. They're generally good people to listen to even if you never want to implement your own http server.

Then you lose a day at worse, or an hour if you serialise hourly. If things go down, they go down, it's meant to suck.

JavaScript has a few gotchas but no, it's pretty easy. It's also something every modern developer needs because a lot of programming head hunters don't take you seriously until you have a website.

i put a div around <li>more</li> but i also added the little arrow image as well, so now it looks like

<div id="more">
<li>More<img src="images/more.png" /></li>
</div>

then in the CSS

#more {
float:left;
display:inline-block;
}

#more li{
float:left;
padding-top:15px;
padding-bottom:5px;
padding-right:10px;
}

#more img{
float:right;
margin-left:80px;
}

Can't believe I made progress...

I'm totally lost here with dates:
I have two dates, I use date_diff to get the difference between them, then I want to multiply the amount of days for a number, yet I have no idea how to convert the timediff result to int, was trying to save the date to a variable, but, fuck I'm confused as shit
  
$today=date_create();
$otherday=date_create("2015/11/23");
echo date_format($otherday,"d/m/y");
$timeDiff=date_diff($today,$otherday);
$ctime=date("d", $timeDiff);
$cost=$ctime*15;
echo $cost;

Sometimes I'll be browsing random sites, I've been capped and everything takes forever. Sometimes a site just won't load, or it'll take so long it wasn't worth it, or functionality takes so long it causes actual anxiety, in 90% of those times the url ends with .php or has WordPress at the very bottom of the page.

Sometimes I'll be asked to look at some code, usually I get excited because I'm one of those guys who enjoys more than the end result of programming. But then I see prefixed variables everywhere and a pure mess of weak typing. Worse still, I'm a mvvm proponent and when I see view code (html) mixed with backend code, like php (or c# or Java or node style js if you're sensible), it's rage mode activated.

Not only is php slow, ugly and encourages bad practices, people's only justification for it is "popularity". At this point a contrarian anger I thought I eliminated when I became an adult boils up and I realise that not only is php bad: it's evil.

Not really... And only because they've put so much potential for middleware in there. Anyone intelligent enough should be able to implement a comment/post system.

You are not someone who deserves a job. There was a blog from an enterprise suit which was posted on /g/, mostly bullshit but one piece of paranoia he quipped was that Haskell devs do so for job security.

You actually make that a reality, not by using an obscure language, but by being a wilfully shit developer.

http://blog.freecodecamp.com/2014/10/the-real-reason-to-learn-mean-stack.html

do you agree with this?
>>
Whats the standard and correct way of doing this?

Say i have a button that unfolds a comment section and shows all the comments. The way i have it right now is that the comments are actually already fetched from the database and loaded into the page, but the divs are hidden and not visible until the button calls javascript to make the divs visible. But this seems kind of bad because the page is fetching data that the user might not even see.

Am i supposed to fetch the data from the database inside javascript and put it into the elements as i click the button and make the divs visible? This makes more sense, but that brings up another problem for me. Im using a MVC framework that has models which use built-in optimized and secure features for fetching data from the database and load it into the page, it seems "wrong" to ignore this and just use some dirty javascript query to fetch data. This also seems very insecure as javascript is executed client side, not serverside. Am i wrong? Whats the correct way of doing things?
>>
>>51488478
Load a certain amount on initial page render but make them hidden. Say 5 of the most recent comments. if they want to see more have them hit a button to make an ajax get for an additional 5 more or whatever you like. This will speed up the initial time to render and reduce the burden on DB calls if it is stored in a DB.
>>
>>51488465
Kind of.

I see why the MEAN stack is so popular, it has everything you need and isn't super complicated.

But then again, it all depends on where you live, since my city has nearly 0 tech jobs, but occasionally has a few PHP offerings every now and then

>>
>>51488580
Thanks. Gotta look into that Ajax thing, quite new to this stuff so its no wonder i missed some vital tool everyone uses.
>>
So I'm having a tiff with a coworker about an ng-option pulling from a $scope in the controller and listing an option element in the HTML like so:

  
//ctrl
$scope.volFilters = [
$filter('i18n')('volunteer.personalHours'),
$filter('i18n')('volunteer.projectHours')
];
//html
<div class="dropdown pull-right margin-right-10" data-ng-if="$state.current.name.indexOf('history') != -1">
<select data-ng-model="volSelect.vol" ng-change="volSet(volSelect.vol)" ng-options="vol for vol in volFilters">
<option selected="selected" value="" disabled>{{'volunteer.filterBy' | i18n}}</option>
</select>
<span ng-click="volSet('clear')"><div class="btn btn-default"><i class="fa fa-times"></i></div></span>
</div>


I don't doubt that it could break things by including a default <option>, but why is using ng-repeat so much more acceptable?
>>
>>51488478
unless you're unfolding more than a paragraph of text and you have more that like 15 to unfold the difference is negligible. Having them hidden in the markup doesn't effect rendering at all (hidden nodes are skipped when layout out everything else) only do ajax if you envisage there being a lot (multiples pages worth of text), the round trip of the ajax is slower than an extra 2kb of text in the data your already sending anyway
>>
>>51488885
Good point. Im not really doing a comment section but used it as an example because its easy to explain. Im actually doing a page with 5 lists are shown in a friendly UI that each contain 20-30 rows of users. When you click on a row it unfolds (toggles) and reveals more information about that user. So my dilemma is A) Fetch all information about all users and have it hidden or B) When you click on a user, then it fetches that users information (with Ajax as recommended previously).

The information is no more than a few attributes, very little.
>>
>>51472600
>a good design strategy
No it isn't, that shit is a fad and you fucking know it.

That shit created CSS and a disaster for years and still never gave ANY developer a valid replacement for Tables for Layout, which is what people wanted.
THERE STILL ISN'T A GOOD ONE NOW. Every possible replacement is either been dropped by everyone or is in devhell.

There are a few weird ass ways to do it, but it is a fucking mess regardless. (and it still ends up creating the same damn TfL structure anyway, just with different names and MORE TEXT)

That shit also created the jQuery generation of shitdevs that literally don't even know base JavaScript at all.


If the fag wants to make a site without JavaScript, let him.
JavaScript isn't NEEDED, it is just a nice thing to have to make the websights less shit.
Of course, it will mean your website takes up slightly more bandwidth, and have more hits against it, but that isn't a massive problem unless you end up getting a surge of traffic, or become popular for some reason.

JS should have never been about making pages.
Templating should have done that and a standard templating format created for it.
Point a template at a URL on server, it passes your shit to the browser, the data gets put in whatever HTML is applicable.
Instead we got this bastardization between iframes that led to XHR becoming the new hotness.
>>
>>51488997
if the information for each user is enough to fit into some data attributes then it might as well already be on the page. If it was a long bio for each user than ajax would probably be a bit more efficient.
>>
guys

I'm a front end dev freelancer (with about 4 years full time experience before that) and someone offered me £40k to work full time for them, what's average for a mid-weight front end role?

I haven't worked for many companies before, I am good at at what I do though.
>>
>>51489050
As the other poster who suggested ajax, I agree with this. If it is small metadata about the user then it is ok to render it all hidden on the page. However, if you have the need to bring in bulk data from complex joins and stuff you might be better off to lazy load it in through ajax while the user takes the opportunity to look through the page first.
>>
>>51489101
If you are a freelancer, surely you are smart enough to be able to google the average wage for full time.

Just check some job center shit.
Research the company, finances, location, competition, etc.
If the job seems good enough, go for it.

You can still do freelance stuff as well if you love webdev that much.
You might need to lower your rates for that though, since you will be taking a bit longer to complete tasks. But since you have a fulltime job, that wouldn't matter anyway, right?
>>
>>51489184

Do this, but counter-offer the salary for an additional 5K. Don't take the first offer from an employer - if you're that good and they want you, they won't turn it away. Get mo' munny senpai

Plus you can always do freelance on the side, as anon suggested.
>>
>>51489184
local companies don't advertise roles in job centers here, it's dedicated recruitment people or done direct, I'm just asking around at the moment without asking people personally (people don't like to talk about how much they earn), also trying to get a feel for what people earn elsewhere in case I decide to move to another country

>>51489212
I was thinking of this, they've already said they're going to give me freelance work if I don't accept the offer, but obviously that won't be constant work

freelance work on top of full time is a bit much though, I don't enjoy it anyway, I know lots of people that do do it
>>
>>51489402

If you don't enjoy it and want to just do your 40 a week and call it, then definitely get the 45K. The worst that'll happen is they say no. That extra 5K goes a long, long way, another 200 every month that can cover the additional time lost from no freelance.

Meanwhile, companies consider it "cutting edge" to upgrade to PHP 5.4, a version that received its last security update one or two months ago

It will take a few years before we can finally use PHP 7. It's not... that bad. They've made some good improvements. Rasmus' retardation from 1994 will forever ruin this language, though.

That and the lack of short lambda syntax. And proper data types. And a good standard library... though all of these are Razzledazzle's fault as well..

For stuff like this, you should use SVG instead. SVG can be animated quite well.

Just like the rest of CSS, CSS animation are... really poorly done. Want to animate or transition to / from auto? You can't. Want to execute a keyframe animation multiple times? You can't... unless you use javascript to cause a reflow.

Web animations are going to solve this dilemma. There's even a polyfill for them.

As far as I know using ng-option on the select is the preferred way over an option with ng-repeat. This is because it doesn't create bindings and child-scopes for each option when using ng-option.

While I don't appreciate being called a perv for fuzz testing your site for sub directories out of curiosity let me lay this down for you.

In theory having an index file should stop me from browsing the contents of the directory, however it's possible to bypass, but that's labeled malicious hacking and not really legal.

Finding your open directory by checking your web root for directories is not. Having an index file wouldn't stop anyone from finding it in the first place either.

ads are an instant turn-off so until you grow a large enough userbase to where you can loose 50 or so members and still have a active site, then you can start monetizing it. If you don't have at least $300 starting capital, don't even bother imo.

They have ads, pic related. You're probably blocking them or have enough sense to steer away from their meme fest gallery side.

They also have merchandise. Used to have a pro/upgraded user account thing that they dropped, and now they have an app which is very likely generating ad revenue as well
