I have a personal project that I would like to start building sometime this year. In essence, I want to build a website to take user-submitted content (exclusively text) and use it to build a story, which is accessible for viewing from that same site. While I have no idea how long these stories will become, or how much interaction the site will ultimately receive, I can imagine that the amount of memory required could become very large very quickly. As such, I would like to save all content of each story, both that from the user and that from the site, to a text file. The goal would be to have the story’s content easily accessible, both by me and by the site, but also to ensure that site isn’t bogged down by strings and strings of text and takes unbearably long to load.
I’m not currently in any rush to get this project started; I’m just curious which one would be best whenever I do start. If I had to sum up the question in one sentence it would be this: what language/system is best for building interactions between front end development and external files, especially for saving and accessing content?
Thank you very much!
