Features of Node.JS

 
Node.JS is feature rich JavaScript platform. The main features are as listed here:

  • Node.JS is optimized for use in making Web Servers and networking tools.
  • Node.JS is used to develop many different kinds of modules for file systems I/O, networking (DNS, HTTP, TCP,  TLS/SSL), cryptography, binary data, data streams and many other core functions.
  • Node.JS applications can be developed using alternatives to JavaScript like CoffeeScript, Dart or even TypeScript. These applications can run on several OS like Linux, macOS, Windows, Unix.
  • It has an advantage over PHP where the functions are designed to be non-blocking in the sense the commands execute concurrently or even in parallel.
  • Node.Js uses event-driven programming to develop scripts for web servers. This helps make the web servers faster and more scalable.
  • Node.JS does not use threading. It operates on single thread and uses non-blocking I/O calls. Hence it is possible to support tens of thousands of concurrent connections that do not require threat context switching.
  • Node.JS has a package management that is used to install the Node.JS programs.
  • Node.JS also offers database support with JSON data. It supports databases like, Postgres, MogoDB, CouchDB.
  • Node.JS built on the Google Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine, hence it is very fast.
  • Node.JS does not buffer the data. These applications simply output the data.
  • Node.JS can be used effectively for many different applications like I/O bound, Data Streaming, Data Intensive Real time applications, JSON APIs based applications and even single page applications.
  • Node.Js can be used for applications which are CPU intensive.

Conclusion

 
Node.JS is used by many firms like GoDaddy, Microsoft, Netflix, Groupon, Walmart, Paypal, Yahoo, SAP, Voxer, etc.
