There's an interesting post in the /r/php subreddit asking the PHP developers out there a serious (non-trolling) question: What great advantages does Python have over PHP?.
All over I see people saying that Python is better than PHP, but as a programmer that has tried Python I don't see its great advantages. Can you guys please help me here.
There's already over 50 comments on the post with a wide range of answers including:
- that Python is "more mainstream" in the world of *nix tools
- the culture of Python's community for installing extensions
- features Python includes like a "consistent API, sane error handling, keyword args..."
There's also an interesting "sub-discussion" happening around the sanity of Python's OOP system. Check out the full post for more or to voice your own opinion.
