Category: NodeJS

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript runtime environment built on the V8 JavaScript engine. It allows developers to run JavaScript code on the server-side, rather than just in web browsers, enabling the creation of highly scalable and performant web applications. Node.js provides a set of built-in modules, such as HTTP, File System, and Stream, that allow for easy creation of server-side functionality, such as web servers, file systems, and real-time communication applications. It also has a large ecosystem of third-party packages and libraries available through the Node Package Manager (NPM), which makes it easy for developers to extend and customize Node.js applications. Node.js is widely used in building modern web applications, including real-time chat applications, streaming services, and collaborative editing tools, among others.
