Ease Of Use:-
Python is a powerful, portable, open-source and is (compared to other things) easy to learn and fun to use. It has many features that other programming languages do not support. The set of rules for forming language is simpler and code is more readable in Python compared to other programming languages like PHP, C, and C++.
PHP is not used for general-purpose programming and is only used for creating energetic/changing web content with HTML. The only reason to stick with PHP is its ease of use.
PHP vs PYTHON:-
Learning Python is better than PHP in a long term project. PHP has a low learning curve, it is easy to get started with PHP.
(solid basic structure on which bigger things can be built).Compare to PHP, Python has a lower number of solid basic structures on which bigger things can be built. Popular ones are Django, Flask.PHP has a huge number of (solid basic structure on which bigger things can be built). Popular ones are Laravel, Slim.
The set of rules for forming language i.e. Syntax is easy to remember almost the same as human language. The syntax is a little bit unusual/amazing compare to Python, it has a wide range of common ways of putting a name on something. Key Features is having less line no of code, Fast use/military service and energetic/changing typing. Open Source and easy use/military service.Language type. It is a general-purpose programing language. It is a web development programing language. Popular Field is the Machine Learning, Data Science, (not made by nature/fake) Intelligence and Automation job. Choice of language in web development. Compare to PHP, Python is more easy to maintain. A little bit difficult to maintain.
After 2016 Python's (quality of being liked a lot or done a lot) is increasing quickly. At the same time PHP losing its (quality of being liked a lot or done a lot) on StackOverflow.
Python has grown in the field of CGI scripting and in few years it has become one of the most widely used programming languages for Web Development.
Whereas web scripting is new in PHP. Though PHP is a powerful programming language when it was (at first/before other things happened) released, it would provide the same extensibility features.
Both PHP and Python without any doubt are the most preferred programming languages for backend web development, but their own distinguishing points. PHP is based on object-oriented programming whereas Python is both object-oriented and procedure-oriented programming. Python is a general-purpose programming language used for backend web development. On the other hand, PHP is not designed for general-purpose programming it is only used for backend web development. The only reason for sticking with PHP is its ease of use and strength and health.
