Why do most people here hate php? Just asking

    Caveat: most my work is php, and I don't hate it.
    1. The syntax is inconsistent which sucks
    2. A Lot of people use it as a templating language (which is an intended use) which is messy
    3. Lack of good and practical industry accepted style guide means every does things differently which makes it hard to read (see point 1)

    Other than that it's really not much different than other languages and if you are using something like Laravel my points don't really hold water.

    For one, debugging it sucks. This is probably my biggest issue with it. Also, it's slow and everything somehow feels like a hack, but maybe that's just me. lol My other reasons for disliking PHP are probably more matters of preference than anything else..
