Hi Tim

Your assertion, for me, needs more to be said, more to say just what you mean - my first reaction was to ask, is it PHP vs Angular (or one of the other frameworks you list), absolutely? I did a little googling and found several places saying they serve different purposes. PHP the back-end, Angular the front-end. Yes - and I step into realms I've not visited very much - PHP __can__ be used for the presentation - but it doesn't have to be, it can be used to create REST APIs  - as I understand it, Angular, or whatever is the latest flavor-of-the-year, doesn't create the APIs, it consumes them.

Now maybe some other language is more suitable for the back-end - node.js comes to mind, as it uses JavaScript and the front-ends might, as well - I see Angular called AngularJS (is that a different animal or is it just a kind of rename?).

On a side note about this thread - it is maybe best if we break it off, some concern has been raised as to the validity of the original post. Nonetheless, the topic has moved into interesting territories.

Don't bother with PHP, learn one of the front-end frameworks like Angular, React or Vue and make your application a Single Page Application (SPA).
