PHP with databases (help)

Is there anyway to have databases with php and html/css/js in Repl.it. I understand I wouldn't be secure so no important passwords would be sent but I think it would be handy for testing.

I don't think repl.it can do it. I would recommend using node.js or python or similar languages for making the back end.

@TheDrone7 So can you do it with Node.Js/ python?

You can build a simple HTTP database on replit.

I've explored the concept with Sinatra and I'm sure it's possible with other languages.

@Zavexeon Have you got a link to any http databases?

@AS4 Sorry for late response, but no.

Once I finish my database's backend (it's called Pipe) I can try to make a NodeJS interface for it. I'll share instructions with how to use if I ever get around to it.
