I thought once again about the technologies for the fd web app. I'd like to
use php7 with the lavarel framework . The main reason is because I'm new
to web development and it would be a good preparation for a special job I'd
like to hunt.
You are writing the software, so it is ultimatively *your* decision. You will
get my contrapoints anyway and then you can decide on your route :). But please,
don't take them too serious, if you do no agree.
Laravel is modern (6 years old) and is as far as I know an industry standard.
The issue with "industry standards" is often that they are outdated and are
commonly used because there is a large software base written with this
particular software and not because it's any better. I don't know Laravel, but
that's my experience from company development.
Rust is not mature enough for web development yet . In addition I don't
like statically typed languages very much.
Ok, these arguments don't count, they are opinions. You will always find
resources telling you something bad about a framework or a language. I know at
least *two* companies shipping software for customers for more than three years
now, using Rust excusively. Despite that there are quite a bunch of larger web
sites written in Rust.
Static vs. dynamic languages: Rust has type inference. Except in struct and
function definitions, you don't see any type in the code, due to the inference.
But as I said, these are opinions and you write the software, your opinions
What do you think? Is it OK to use php7 with laravel?
Go for it. But at least I won't be able to assist you, I have neither motivation
nor time to learn PHP :).
How do you plan to write the dictionary query part, you don't want to write all
that in PHP, do you?
Thanks for your ideas
