The main reason for using node was that I wanted to use websockets for connection between the app and backend. And that where some nice packages for fetching content to auto-generate lots of questions.

I've heard about Adonis that it would be similar to Laravel (PHP) and since I'm used to write code with Laravel it seemed worth checking out!

Ah gotcha. I guess I'm just used to only seeing Express.js used with Node on the backend but it's cool to see other frameworks with Adonis. I haven't worked much with websockets but if it works well with Adonis, I might have to check it out.

Thanks for sharing!
