7 scenarios when ignoring Node.js is a crime

7 scenarios when ignoring Node.js is a crime

Node.js went on heading the list of the most commonly used technologies in 2018, according to the Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2018. Apparently, the technology remains a matter of heated debate in terms of the most efficient use. Hard-hitting developers add more fuel to the fire reviewing Node.js’s shortcomings on forums like Quora.

Let us look at Node.js behind the scenes and discover some cases when the headline JavaScript technology shines.

  1. Test Node.js as a picture-perfect case for real-time applications.

If a customer wants the app ASAP, a lower Node.js learning curve is worth mentioning as a benefit. The process of chat app development in Node.js from scratch will be much faster, so in case speed is top priority, the Node.js tech races to the rescue.

  1. Need a single-page application? Engage Node.js capabilities.

Single-page applications often use a third-party API and transfer most of processing to the client side written in JS. Here Node.js acts as a proxy and is involved in the single-page app creation as a local development server.

  1. Node.js is designed to simplify data-heavy web applications.

Stages of data streaming or data mapping are a piece of cake for Node.js. Still, don’t forget about safety in numbers related to big data tasks — they are not solved with only one language or technology.

  1. Rapid handling of simple requests becomes the least labor-intensive process with Node.js.

Node.js is really second to none at handling simple requests because of V8 single-threaded multiplexing that doesn’t have the overheads on threads or processes spawning at each request. It is far less time-consuming than multithreading.

Speaking about specific cases, Node.js is brilliant in infrastructure issues, e.g., for writing custom gateway parts or custom proxies.

  1. A Node.js standard library gives a head start over other languages.

The Node.js standard library is highly competitive as it fully covers the execution of all essential tasks solved with the Node.js technology, including file reading, socket creation, memory sharing, etc. When any specific issues, like object-relational mapping, occur, npm, a Node.js package manager, is used to find the external libraries that meet the requirements.

  1. Node.js for creating complex web applications and qualified developers make a perfect tandem.

Particular cases provide the best evidence. The Emerline Node.js experts work on the app that scales across two continents and is currently available in the USA and Europe, which is just the beginning. Asia is yet to come, and the audience involved is going to cover from 10,000 to over 100,000 people. In short, our team is moving steadily forward towards the enterprise-level app written in Node.js.

As for the project details, the Emerline team actively utilizes the Google tech stack for the app’s implementation and plans to add billing systems and backup services in the near future.

  1. Using Node.js for both backend and frontend is the icing on the cake.

Node.js runs JavaScript, which allows using the same language for backend and frontend. To put this Node.js’s superpower to good use, you should not underestimate the role of an experienced specialist who is skilled at full-stack development and has backend experience.
