PHP positives Show more
I always bitch about things PHP is bad at, but it’s not all bad. Yesterday, in ~100 lines of PHP, ~60 of CSS, and ~30 of HTML, I made a nice directory index to display website mock-ups to my company’s clients.
PHP is good at displaying information to a browser and very simple string parsing , but I wrote a grand total of 1 function in that project which was just some logic around string replacements. The more functionality you try to do with PHP, the worse it gets.
