Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require live communication between a server and the online users and can substantially speed up the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s delivered to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are many persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based games or live chat platforms, for example, and lots of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
