There is a two-way data exchange between client and the server by means of Push method thereby replacing the Web Sockets. This has enabled real time data flow between the client and the server.
Node.Js has been backed by good number of developers and contributors from the open source community. It is also getting traction from big tech giants in the field of E-Commerce and has a growing number of adopters in the industry.
Let’s have a high-level overview of the features that makes Node.Js so popular among the development community;
1. Fast Performance
This way many organizations are moving to Node.Js as back end for not just the Web UI but also to Mobile Apps to do I/O intensive operation concurrently on distributed systems.
This way a Web application developer has access to and visibility of all the layers of the application. Also, the amount of developers needed with different competencies has been reduced.
3. Suitable for Real Time Applications
Any application that has real time data exchange between client and the server is a perfect fit for Node.Js. In such applications, there is a need to event based server that is non-blocking and asynchronous.
4. Community Support through NPM
Node.Js has a large and every growing community of developers that are delivering open source packages. Node Package Manager (NPM) is an online archive for all these Node.JS packages published. NPM provides reusable code as a package that can be used for the application development. With this strong backing of the community, NPM hosts one of the largest collection of open source Node.Js projects in the world.
Angular, ReactJS uses NPM Node Modules such as react, gulp etc. Some of these packages are available in the links below.
