    Ayyy fellow C++ programmer ;)

    My Favorite Language is C++ as you can do almost anything with it, you have so much power and control.

    Within reason.. yes.. C++ is a powerful programming language, although it does lack the simplicity and support for GUI's like .NET or JavaScript support.. (wpf, wf, electron, node etc)

    C++ have really simple GUI frameworks? Why would C++ ever support javascript?....

    When did I ever say it would support Javascript? I just said Javascript and C# had BETTER gui support that's why I prefered them.. thanks to the .NET framework and electron. lots more but yeah..

    You're also talking about C++ as if its multiple things, its one thing..

    Ah the way you wrote it sounded like you were saying the language sucked because it doesn't support JavaScript, i was so confused lol.

    PHP because I love the way it can be structured.

    JavaScript or Python probably. Both are very flexible. A JS stack with Typescript is similar to Java without all the old clunkiness, which is great!

    That doesn't really make sense, any language can be structured in any way. Did you mean the design pattern or syntax?

    I must say I do love JavaScript, I've never really got into Python majorly but I know the basics.

    I personally love Java and I haven't actually used it much, but I've fallen in love with Kotlin. I'll definitely be using it whenever I next work in Java.

    I would really like to learn Python, but the problem is that I seriously can't withstand that ugly syntax (just my opinion, but I really think it's just ugly, even worse than Ruby)

    JavaScript > *

    Anything any of you can do in PHP or any other language you know, can be done in JS.

    JS (I think) is also the only language to support all platforms aswell as React as a library without having to use different languages/libraries for each platform.

    I'd say JS is the superior language for mobile and app development.

    Yeah, that's why I wrote I thought so.
    But I'd rather do front-end in JS than in any other language.

    Sorry I never expanded on that... I mean the way the design is structured.

    JavaScript and C++.

    WHY:
    Node.js is JavaScript and C++ and you can write code in both languages interchangeably and the module system will handle in a more organized approach than other languages imo. So that's support for both high and low level programming on one platform.

    The same goes for the inverse. Anything that can be done in JS can be done in C, Python, Ruby, PHP, and much more. All of these languages are Turing Complete. So I'm not understanding your argument as to why this classifies as Javascript being greater than anything else?

    Not entirely true @Buu, some language features aren't simple enough to be mocked in other languages without a lot of unnecessary coding to back it (without the guarantee of a performance advantage) and your implementation wouldn't only be redundant, it'd probably wouldn't perform as well as the original implemented maintained by professionals.

    JavaScript has a lot of language features (even just in theory) that make other languages look inferior, the only thing I would say JavaScript needs is more OOP and low-level coding support.

    EDIT:
    I'd also say, JavaScript the programming and scripting language is superior to PHP which is just a scripting language. Comparing just JavaScript the scripting language and PHP the scripting language is futile because they're both made for different jobs.

    Also @Seriosk on your original post you said you like C++ and C because of the design patterns? Software design patterns are pretty similar (if not the same) in every major programming language.
