We very rarely use NodeJS features for backend development, as we deliberately prefer to develop this part of web applications in Ruby on Rails. But we actively use NodeJS in the creation of applications for the desktop. They make much more simple he work with the frontend. All the pros are available with node js development services by Fireart.
Main characteristics of Node.JS
Node.js is platform of open source type. As a result the copyright holder has granted various rights to study, edit, and distribute the software to anyone for any purpose.
Because of the reason that here is used the event engine, it’s the best variant in a non-blocking response.
The libraries are very advanced and therefore can produce code at a higher speed.
Node.js is characterised with a special feature, which means it doesn’t buffer any data.
Since it uses an event looping process, with it can be followed a single threaded model. This helps a single user handle more than one request.
There are async libraries. This is very useful because no need to wait for the API to carry out the sending of a response.
Node.Js modules represent multiple functions grouped into one or more JS files. All of these modules have a unique context and do not interfere with the work of other modules. These modules enable code reuse and improve usability.
Basically they are are created locally by the user or software developer. All such modules can have several functions, grouped into different files and folders. And all the information can be shared across special community. The use is simple and convenient.
The modules without any problem can be used by downloading them through the Node Package Manager. Moreover, as a rule, these modules are developed by other developers and anyone can use them for free.
The programming of some applications is simplified with such approach, especially when implementing a convenient input-output (I / O) interface, like in Node.js. According to legend, the idea of creating Node.js came to the author when he saw the file upload bar on Flickr, which did not understand the real percentage of file uploads, that is, it did not have feedback from the browser.
With the proliferation of social networks and other “interactive” sites on the Internet, the demand for Node.js has grown sharply as a platform for applications that respond to user actions: chats, games, collaboration tools. Nowadays the process is simple and the result of use if guaranteed.
The development of the language is coordinated by the Node.js Foundation, which is funded by the Linux Foundation’s free projects support program. This is a free distributed project, in the creation of which thousands of developers from all over the world participate at no cost.
