The popularity of NODE.JS for developing the web application in last few years has reached tremendous heights. This open-source cross-platform runtime environment that has been written in JavaScript makes it an exceptional choice for real-time applications.

Node.JS has not only just proved to be an extensive landmark in IT market but has also become one of the most preferred choices of developers for web application development. Be it the faster development cycles, greater agility, and multi-platform compatible codes, NODE.JS is here to stand fresh and is surely a game changer.

NODE.JS has been enjoying developer’s attention ever since its launch. Some of the benefits of choosing NODE.JS for web application development are:

It is fast:

Node.js makes use of V8 engine by Google that uses JavaScript into native machine code and has exceptional running speed. Major actions in web application development including reading and writing to the database, network connection or the file system can be performed quickly using Node.js that too at a very fast speed.

Single Codebase:

Node.js is a game-changing technology as it allows developers to write JavaScript for both the server and the client thus making it convenient to transfer data between the server and the client to coordinate the working simultaneously which consequently saves the time. Developers can use the run-time environment to write both front-end and back-end of a web application in JavaScript, without using a server-side programming language.

No Sync Issues:

Node.js is efficient in managing asynchronous I/O from the root and is competent enough to solve the common web and network development problems. The Event loop is the heart of Node.js. All I/O rigorous tasks in Node.js are undertaken together to handle numerous clients.

Supports Caching:

Node.js further supports catching of individual modules. Each time the module is requested, it is cached in application memory. The caching feature enables the application to load web pages and respond to user request more quickly.
