A little context - I’ve had an idea for an app so I’m teaching myself.
I’m expecting my backend is (at least for the time being) only going to be a pretty simple REST API, just some simple CRUD.
Following some advice, I’m now pretty familiar with php and MySQL. Following a string of problems getting laravel set up, I’m now thinking of just going with a Node backend. No experience of Rails, so its either php or js.
Can anyone recommend a good framework? Ideally I’d rather use MySQL. I’ll worry about any performance issues once I’ve got some sort of prototype up together. Or if anyone’s keen on php/laravel feel free to point out some if there are any real advantages! Thanks
