Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live interaction between a server and the online users and can substantially accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there are a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based games or instant messaging programs, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
