Node.js and JavaScript do certainly have their issues, but they’re well used…

I’m glad to read that you are considering a world larger than JavaScript.

Unlike JavaScript and Node.js, Python has a sophisticated web development environment comparable to Rails and Grails: Django. To me this suggests that you don’t need something that glues together front and backend code, as you have in JavaScript. Client and server side code is developed in the same framework.

My personal favorite for web development is Grails, which has been used to build nderground. Currently nderground is approaching 20K lines of Groovy/Java code. I have not looked at the side of the client HTML/CSS/JavaScript/jQuery, etc…

Like what you read? Give nderground a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
