Hello guys !
So after debating a long time with my coworkers, we chose to go with Ionic on the client side. We have a very big hybrid ()phonegap) application coming, something huge, with a lot of data to store and use in live (websocket…).
We’re now debating about the backend solution. Our two main options are Node.js and Laravel framework, but we are open for suggestions. Node looks more reactive, but this tends to be a draw when using Facebook’s HipHop (HHVM), which is 100% compatible with Laravel. Websockets seems more easy to use in Node, as well as MongoDB (which we chose for DB storage). But I have read somewhere that Node could be a very bad choice for very big applications, and have to take in mind we feel already comfortable with PHP, where Node would be a start-to-learn.
Thanks ahead for any advice !
