Introduction to Node.JS

Node.js is an open source, cross-platform environment built on Chrome’s JavaScript runtime for fast and scalable server-side as well as networking applications.  It runs on various platforms and uses JavaScript on the server. As Node.js is an interface to the V8 JavaScript runtime, it enables event-driven programming to the web servers through a JavaScript interpreter that runs in the Chrome browser. The core advantage of Node.js is that it works on a non-blocking I/O model that makes it clean and usable. These features are apt for developing data-intensive real-time applications that have to perform in varied environments.

Some popular web applications that have been built with Node.js include:

Reasons for this popularity are:

Speed: It runs on the V8 engine developed by Google that uses JavaScript into native machine code and operates at a super speed. Node.js uses a single thread which is the event loop that takes care of all the asynchronous I/O operations. Major actions involved in web applications such as reading or writing in the database, network connections or file system can be performed speedily with the help of Node.js.

Data Streaming: This feature can be utilized to its fullest with Node.js to develop great functionalities such as processing files at the time of uploading time as this can reduce the overall processing duration when data comes in the form of streams. Moreover, the data streaming feature of Node.js can be deployed at the time of real-time video or audio recording.

Real-Time Web Applications: Node.js helps build real-time web applications at a lighting speed just in the same time required to make a simple blog in PHP. It will be a clear choice for multi-user real-time web apps such as games and chat apps. Node.js caters to both the client-side and the server-side that is written in JavaScript and thus the synchronization process is fast and orderly.

Easy Coding:  Web development companies such as SGS Technologie are enabled by Node.js to write JavaScript for both the server and the client. This makes it convenient to transport as well as coordinate the working of data between both the sides simultaneously.

Increased Productivity:  With Node.js, inter-silo dependencies are removed and work of the front-end and back-end teams are combined for smooth functioning.

Good Synchronization:  Node.js is very efficient in managing different forms of input/output from the root. It also has great competency in solving usual web and network development problems. In addition, the Event Loop is Node.js handles numerous clients; that is all massive tasks in Node.js are undertaken together.
