Choosing which language to code in, for project using DO API?
Hi, I am planning to create a web app which allows users to create game servers from the web and monitor them through the app. I am experienced in scripting for servers so I wanted to automate the process for myself and make it into the app if others find it useful.
Anyway I was going to write it in PHP using the DO API, but I am unsure of whether this would be inefficient. I then thought I could use PHP to execute shell scripts using curl to connect to the API. I have not seen much documentation on using PHP to execute scripts so I'm assuming it isn't very secure.
I would like the system to be fast and be able to code extra functionality into. So I am wondering whether I should look into a different approach, maybe in Go, Ruby, Python , Node, Java, Perl etc or another strong backend language.
If you need any more info, please ask.
