Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the Internet users and can significantly speed up the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there’re a lot of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser video games or online chat platforms, for example, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
