If for a small job, I choice PHP.
Because, PHP has many developer, and useful framework for web.We can do fast develop and fast release at PHP.

If for my project, I choice Dart.
Because, Dart is easy to develop web service by strong type and smart editors and IDE.


PHP is designed for app on server side, and Dart for app on client side. So, use both.


From a performance perspective on server side, Dart is ahead of PHP:


wrk http://localhost:1337 -c 8 -d 60 -t 8
/// Dart
import 'dart:io';

Future main() async {
  var server = await HttpServer.bind(
  print('Listening on localhost:${server.port}');

  await for (HttpRequest request in server) {
    request.response.write('Hello World');
    await request.response.close();
// PHP //  php -S localhost:1337
header('Content-Type: text/plain');

echo "Hello World";
$ php --version
PHP 7.3.11 (cli) (built: Feb 29 2020 02:50:36) ( NTS )

$ dart --version
Dart VM version: 2.7.2 (Mon Mar 23 22:11:27 2020 +0100) on "macos_x64"

Looks very interesting, I think I should give it a try 🙂


yes, but PHP is more simple (just 2 lines), so it's better for newbies, simple to edit, to maintain, etc. :)
