Features Of NodeJS Development

Asynchronous & Event-Driven

NodeJs is built to handle asynchronous I/O from the group and is an ideal solution for common web and network development issues. In addition to quick JavaScript execution, the real magic behind Node.js is known as the Event Loop. To meet big volumes demanded by clients, all I/O intensive operations in Node.js perform asynchronously.

Rapid Development

NodeJs application can be scaled in two ways– Horizontal Scaling and Vertical Scaling which further helps improve the application’s performance. In Horizontal Scaling, you can add more nodes to your current system whereas in Vertical scaling you can add more resources to a single node.

Lightweight And Extensible

NodeJs is based on JavaScript which can be executed on the client-side and server-side as well. Additionally, it supports the exchange of data using JSON which is easily consumed by JavaScript. This makes it lightweight as compared to other frameworks. This is the reason why most businesses choose Node JS development services to build their applications.

Blazingly Fast

NodeJs uses the V8 engine which is developed by Google for Chrome. V8 compiles JavaScript into native machine code directly which increases the speed and efficient implementation of the code. This empowers a Node JS development company to build quality web apps at a fast pace.

Community Friendly

NodeJs has a wide community of developers worldwide. They are highly active in the development of new packages or modules to support various types of application development.

Nest vs. Express

As a backend developer when you start planning to build a backend application using NodeJs and want to use some framework, Express.js is usually the first choice that comes to mind. Express has gained popularity in the last few years among developers. Nowadays Nest (NestJS) is another popular NodeJS framework that can help you to build large-scale applications with the support of typescript and some useful advanced design patterns like dependency injection, event driven development and MVC. As both Nest and Express are used as frameworks for Node.js applications, there’s lots of discussion about which option is better for developers to start a new Node project. In this blog post, we’ll be comparing NestJS and ExpressJS to help developers make informed decisions. So let’s start with the introduction of both frameworks and check key features. 1. Nest Introduction Nest is a MIT-licensed open source framework for building efficient, scalable and enterprise-grade Node.js server-side applications. It uses progressive JavaScript, is built with and fully supports TypeScript but still enables developers to code in pure JavaScript (ES6, ES7, ES8). Nest combines elements of OOP (Object Oriented Programming), FP (Functional Programming), and FRP (Functional Reactive Programming). In the background, Nest uses Express as the default http server and optionally can be configured to use Fastify as well. Many superb libraries, helpers, and tools exist for NodeJS, but none of them effectively solve the main problem of - Architecture. Nest provides an out-of-the-box application architecture which allows developers and teams to create highly testable, scalable, loosely coupled, and easily maintainable applications. 2. Nest Introduction Express is a flexible Node.js web application framework that provides a set of features for web and mobile applications. Express provides many HTTP utility methods and middleware that can be helpful in creating REST APIs that are quick and easy. Many popular frameworks use Express like Feathers, LoopBack, Sails, Hydra-Express, Blueprint, graphql-yoga, NestJs etc. 3. Key features of Nest * TypeScript - A strongly typed language that is a superset of JavaScript, Nest is compatible with both TypeScript and pure JavaScript. * CLI - The Nest CLI is a command-line interface tool that helps you to initialise, develop, and maintain your Nest applications. * Organizing code: Nest supports two types of mode standard and mono-repo for code organization. * Modules: Lazy Loading modules that load things when necessary. * Dependency Injection: Contains a built-in DI container which makes applications modular and more efficient. * Exception filters, pipes, guards and interceptors available to handle and transform incoming requests and return response after applying your business or security logic. * Lifecycle Events - Nest provides lifecycle hooks that give visibility into key lifecycle events, and the ability to act (run registered code on your module, injectable or controller) when they occur. * Integration: Offers support for dozens of Nest-specific modules that help you easily integrate with common technologies and concepts like TypeORM, Mongoose, GraphQL, Logging, Validation, Caching, WebSockets, and much more * GraphQL - Nest support out of the box support for GraphQL it offers two ways of building GraphQL applications, the code first and the schema first methods using Apollo server and Mercurius. * Websockets - There are two WS platforms supported out-of-the-box socket.io and ws. You can choose the one that best suits your needs. * Serverless - Nest supports serverless development using @vendia/serverless-express and AWS-lambda modules to deploy your micro apps on lambda. There is also support for other platforms like azure and google cloud. * Testing: You can write test suites to automate testing of your application. It supports both unit and e2e testing with help of its module and it supports many testing framework integration of your choice. * Microservices: Nest supports several built-in transport layer implementations, called transporters, which are responsible for transmitting messages between different microservice instances.Provides easy to understand and detailed documentation & official courses to learn everything you need to master Nest and tackle modern backend applications at any scale. 4. Key features of Nest * Flexible and Speedy - Express.js is very easy-to-use and flexible, and it’s faster than any other Node.js framework. * Express is a part of MEAN stack, a full stack JavaScript solution used in building fast, robust, and maintainable production web applications. * Easy to integrate with different template engines like Jade, Vash, EJS etc. * Powerful Routing System - The framework has the most powerful and robust routing system built out of the box that responds to a client request via a particular endpoint. * Middleware - Express is a routing and middleware web framework that has minimal functionality of its own: An Express application is essentially a series of middleware function calls. * Error Handling - Express catches and processes errors that occur both synchronously and asynchronously. It comes with a built-in error handler that takes care of any errors that might be encountered in the app. * Database integration - Adding the capability to connect databases to Express apps is just a matter of loading an appropriate Node.js driver for the database in your app. 5. Nest vs. Express (a) Opinionated & unopinionated: The main difference between both frameworks is that Nest is opinionated while ExpressJS is un-opinionated. An opinionated framework means that it has a proper style or way of doing things. It has a proper structure and is less diverse. An un-opinionated framework gives complete freedom to the developers and is very diverse but less structured. (b) Architecture: Another difference between the two is their architecture. Nest provides ready-to-use components like controllers, providers, and modules with which you can easily implement UI and control logic and data. As ExpressJS doesn’t follow proper structure. As a result, your application might end up being inefficient and less optimized. (c) Typescript: Nest is written in and supports TypeScript. As TypeScript follows status typing and includes a “type” feature, Nest is more reliable and suitable to develop large-scale applications. Express doesn’t support TypeScript by default but you can use some type modules and configure typescript to use with express. (d) Performance: Performance is a key point while choosing a framework, Nest+Fastify gives great performance with structured code. Have a look at some benchmarks of Express, Nest with "@nestjs/platform-express", Fastify, Nest with "@nestjs/platform-fastify". Ref. https://github.com/nestjs/nest/blob/master/benchmarks/all_output.txt (e) Unit Testing: Unit Testing is pretty easy and faster with Nest as its CLI includes a default testing environment configured in Jest. In ExpressJS, you need to configure the assertion library and test runner to write testing. (f) Core Components: Nest’s core components are Modules, Controllers & Services while in Express we have Routes, Middleware and Templates. (g) Popularity: ExpressJS is the older framework, it is the most popular and has a bigger user base. There are thousands of companies that use this framework. However, Nest is slowly gaining popularity as more and more people are shifting from Express to Nest. In fact, it ranks second among the top Node.js frameworks on GitHub with Express taking first place. 6. Nest vs. Express (a). Bootstrap application Nest // File: src/main.ts import { NestFactory } from '@nestjs/core'; import { ValidationPipe } from '@nestjs/common'; import { ApiCatsModule } from './api-cats.module'; async function bootstrap() { const app = await NestFactory.create(ApiCatsModule); const port = 3000; console.log(`Cats app listening on port ${port}`); await app.listen(port); } bootstrap(); // File: src/api-cats.module.ts import { Module } from '@nestjs/common'; import { ApiCatsController } from './controllers/api-cats.controller'; @Module({ imports: [], controllers: [ApiCatsController], providers: [], }) export class ApiCatsModule { } // File: src/controllers/api-cats.controller.ts import { Controller, Get } from '@nestjs/common'; @Controller('cats') export class ApiCatsController { @Get() async getCats(): string[] { return ['Cat 1', 'Cat 2', 'Cat 3']; } } Express const express = require('express'); const app = express(); const port = 3000; app.get('/cats', (req, res) => { res.json(['Cat 1', 'Cat 2', 'Cat 3']); }); app.listen(port, () => { console.log(`Cats app listening on port ${port}`); }); (b) Routes Nest import { Controller, Post, Get } from '@nestjs/common'; @Controller('cats') export class CatsController { @Post() create(): string { return 'Cat created'; } @Get() findAll(): string { return ['Cat 1', 'Cat 2', 'Cat 3']; } } Express app.post('/cats', (req, res) => { res.send('Cat created'); }); app.get('/cats', (req, res) => { res.json(['Cat 1', 'Cat 2', 'Cat 3']); }); (c) Middleware Nest // File: src/common/middleware/logger.middleware.ts import { Injectable, NestMiddleware } from '@nestjs/common'; import { Request, Response, NextFunction } from 'express'; @Injectable() export class LoggerMiddleware implements NestMiddleware { use(req: Request, res: Response, next: NextFunction) { console.log('LOGGED'); next(); } } // File: src/app.module.ts import { Module, NestModule, MiddlewareConsumer } from '@nestjs/common'; import { LoggerMiddleware } from './common/middleware/logger.middleware'; import { CatsModule } from './cats/cats.module'; @Module({ imports: [CatsModule], }) export class AppModule implements NestModule { configure(consumer: MiddlewareConsumer) { // apply middleware consumer .apply(LoggerMiddleware) .forRoutes('cats'); } } Express // File: main.js const express = require('express') const app = express() const myLogger = function (req, res, next) { console.log('LOGGED'); next(); } // apply middleware app.use(myLogger); app.get('/', (req, res) => { res.send('Hello World!'); }) app.listen(3000); Conclusion Both Nest and Express are popular NodeJS frameworks that are easy to learn and get started. They both have their pros and cons. I personally suggest Nest for more manageable and structured code with microservice architecture that supports a variety of transport layers. Share your experience with both frameworks and don’t forget to share the framework for the next NodeJS project.

Express JS vs Node JS: What’s the Best Backend Technology?

Hold your breath and sit tight, as we’re setting out to declare the one-true winner for the most popular technologies for back-end development. Yes, you guessed it right! It’s the ultimate battle between Express js vs Node js. But the all-important question - which one is it? Let's jump in and find out. Introduction Today, all you need is an all-inclusive, modern, and scalable backend technology that performs efficiently and gives a tough fight to your competitors. In the world of web development, JavaScript is undoubtedly the champion. It’s the most popular and versatile programming language. While its power can be found on the client side, it has also gained prominence on the server side thanks to our protagonist's Node js and Express js. Popular is an understatement when it comes to NodeJS and Express JS both of which feature great performance, robust support (more than 1 million downloads), and a dazzling list of features. Let’s find out more about web development with node and express leveraging the javascript stack. What is Node JS? –  A Quick Overview Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on the Google Chrome V8 engine. An open-source, cross-platform application framework that was designed to run on single-threaded processes and accomplish real-time tasks. The JavaScript engine built on the platform makes it possible to build high-performance apps that have an express response time. The idea behind Node.js was to create an open-source platform that allows you to write your app in JavaScript without having to go through the hassle of compilation and installation. Basically, it acts as an "interface" for your nodes which helps you consume server-side APIs from within your scripts. Features of Node JS ✅ Lightweight and effective ✅ Supremely adaptable & versatile ✅ Zero buffering ✅Event-driven ✅Uses non-blocking I/O model The popularity of Node JS in the Development Kingdom 🔥Node.js is used by at least 30 million websites. 🔥Over the last few years, Node.js has had a positive impact on developer productivity and business operations. 🔥 As per the Stack Overflow reported in 2021, Node.js took 6th position on the list of the most widely used web technologies. 🔥In another survey conducted by Statista, Node.js ranked second, being preferred by 26.73 percent of respondents. Use Cases of Node JS ✅Server Side rendering for Single Page Applications (SPAs) ✅Data Streaming Apps ✅Chatbots ✅Video & audio conferencing apps ✅ IoT-based applications ✅Rest APIs ✅Real-time applications ✅ Online Gaming ✅Drawing/editing apps, ✅Backends and servers Apps Built With Node JS that Prove Its Awesomeness 1.

The payment giant PayPal witnessed a mammoth decrease of 35% in average response time after the change from Java to Node.js. Is Node JS used for frontend or backend? And how to connect frontend and backend in Node.js? These are a few questions that come to the minds of many. Let’s dig deep and figure it out. Node.js is 100% a versatile tool when it comes to web development. It’s used for both front-end and back-end development, but it has the ability to fulfill these roles whenever necessary. This is why so many CTOs and business owners love working with Node.js. It’s not limited to just dealing with websites or apps though — you can put Node.js to good use in areas like automation, data storage and analysis, real-time communication, and various other areas of IT and technology Since it's built on top of native JavaScript, its task is to look after the backend while extensions like React and Angular step in to handle the frontend. To answer the question to connect the frontend and backend in Node.js you simply need to create an Express backend and create a React frontend. Next, prepare to fetch the data from the backend and show it on the  React app, and voila you’re done. What is Express JS? –  A Quick Overview Express JS or express is an open-source framework that was built especially for Node JS. It's used to build web applications, APIs, and other services on top of the MEAN stack. The Express framework allows third-party integrations with many different packages/features that can be easily customized. Express is by far one of the most popular Node.js frameworks. It is developed by the same team that created JSON, making it a robust option for any application needing a lot of routes and data processing logic on the server-side. Features of Express JS ✅Faster server-side development ✅Highly advanced routing mechanism ✅Templating ✅Debugging ✅Easy error fixing The popularity of Express js in the Development Kingdom 🔥A study showed that Express ranked no.9 in market position for Web Application Frameworks. 🔥Express was awarded 6th most popular in .io in the Frameworks category. 🔥It also bagged the 14th position among the most popular in the Top 10k sites in Frameworks category. 🔥Express secured its place as the 4th most popular in .me in Frameworks category.

Python vs. Node js: Which backend technology to choose in 2022?

Its cornerstone is the backend of an app plication, whether mobile app or web. You could have the best-looking frontend, but if the backend or server-side is not robust, the application will fall flat. Therefore, it is necessary to choose the best backend technology to increase the app’s longevity in the market. Over the years, Pythons vs. Node JS have emerged as two of the leading web app development technologies. There has been a vast difference since the inception of these two technologies, as Python was first developed in 1991 and Node JS in 2009. Since both the technologies are at par when it comes to comparison, as a CTO of a firm, you might be wondering what to choose from Python vs. Node JS. Therefore, in this blog, we will put both these back-end development technologies in a similar situation and see how they fare against each other. But before that, let us begin with the basics. What is Python: In brief? Python is an object-oriented, high-level programming language that has been around for more than three decades and has a lot of APIs, libraries, and ancillary tools available. Moreover, learning Python from JavaScript is easier for developers, and the language has several programming paradigms. In addition, the language has its community, libraries, and supporting platforms that are ideal for businesses to develop apps for uncorrelated use cases. What is Node JS: In brief? Node JS is scalable and an event-driven programming language that brings a lot of efficiency to the project if used in it. Also, due to its asynchronous nature, it is easier for the developers to work on concurrent requests without changing the I/O operations. Due to this quality, the future of Node JS becomes bright as most organizations prefer to use JavaScript for both front and backend. Python Vs. Node JS: A detailed side-by-side comparison To better understand our readers, we have divided this comparison into different paradigms to understand the clear usability of back-end technologies. Let’s dive deep and understand the server-side languages in detail. 1.   Speed in Python vs Node JS Python: Speed is not the greatest attribute of Python as a server-side language. It is a single flow, interpreted language and is not the correct choice if speed is your priority. Moreover, Python is not ideal for applications that involve a lot of complex calculations. Node JS: The performance of Node JS is remarkable as it is interpreted with the V8 engine along with the JavaScript code. Moreover, Node JS performs better and is more resource-efficient as it executes the code outside the web browser. Also, to increase the speed of code execution, Node JS has an event non-blocking architecture. This architecture also helps in simultaneous action against multiple requests at one time. Node JS has single-mode caching that helps in reducing the app loading time, making it more responsive. Third Rock Teckhno’s verdict: Node JS is the winner. See More:  https://www.thirdrocktechkno.com/blog/how-is-python-used-in-business/ 2.  Scalability in Python vs. Node JS Python: Multithreading is the essential virtue that helps in scaling the application. But as a server-side language, Python does not support multi-threading as it uses Global Interpreter Lock (GIL). Moreover, even if Python has multiple threads, GIL will not let the interpreter perform tasks simultaneously, negatively affecting the application’s overall performance. In addition, Python is more dynamically typed. Therefore, it is unsuitable for large projects with rapidly evolving teams. Also, with growing teams after a point of time, it becomes tough to maintain the high-demanding and complex situations. Node JS: It is easier for developers to scale Node JS horizontally and vertically. Unlike Python vs. Java for microservices, that will help them to communicate with lightweight mechanisms and run their process. Moreover, as far as typing is concerned, there are more options in Node JS than in Python. The developers can use both weakly or strongly-typed TypeScript. Also, there is space to add extra modules and microservice in Node JS, making the backend development process more flexible. Third Rock Teckhno’s verdict: Node JS is the winner See More: https://www.thirdrocktechkno.com/blog/how-to-build-an-ecommerce-web-application-using-node-js/ 3.  Syntax in Python vs. Node JS Python: The syntax of Python is straightforward and is often deemed its most significant advantage. Python developers need to write fewer lines to code as the syntax is devoid of curly brackets. If the developers use Flutter front end and Python backend, it will become easier for them to read and debug the code. Moreover, code readability in Python is so simple that clients with an essential technical background can easily understand it. Also, with a more straightforward syntax, Python becomes the perfect backend language to work on for aspiring developers as well. Node JS: Node JS has a JavaScript-based environment. Therefore, for the developers, it is necessary to know the basics of Java to work on Node JS. On the other hand, Node JS has a shallow threshold for developers therefore there are chances that a lot of incompetent developers get in. So, it is necessary to follow the right tips to hire Node JS developers. Third Rock Techno’s verdict: Python is the winner 4.  Error handling Python vs Node JS Python: The backend language has a clean and compact code and therefore, troubleshooting is more straightforward in it. In addition, as learning Python from JavaScript is easier along with its lagging parallel processing ability, it is easier to carry out the process of debugging. Moreover, with better error handling capacity, Python renders a better customer experience and aids in enhanced user retention as well. Node JS: As seen earlier, Node JS has multithreading abilities that help in increasing the performance of the application. But in hindsight, it has a disadvantage as well. As multiple requests are processed simultaneously, the error handling capacity reduces. In addition, there is a regular occurrence of runtime exceptions that can become difficult to cope with in the long run. Therefore, as far as error handling is concerned, the future of Node JS looks bleak as compared to Python. Third Rock Techno’s Verdict: Python is the winner. 5.  Use Case in Python vs Node JS Python: Python has been around for more than 30 years now. So, in terms of concise coding and functionalities, it has an upper hand over several backend development languages. The language has massive documentation and a large community, although, in Python vs Node JS, Python lags a little bit in speed. There are several use cases of Python such as science and engineering, Big Data, Testing Automation and DevOps, Technical Projects, and more. In addition, some of the market leaders like Reddit, Facebook, Pixar, Google, Spotify, and more vouch for Python and use this backend development language extensively. Node JS: Unlike if you use Python as a server-side language, Node JS development is great for apps that require data-intensive or real-time information. It can also be used in heavy client-side functionalities as Python's data streaming efficiency is much better than Python. When we compare Python vs. Node JS in terms of use cases, Node JS has chatbots, content management systems (CMS), eCommerce stores, 3D graphics, and gaming, among many others. Moreover, like Python, leading business organizations that prefer Node JS are PayPal, Netflix, Amazon, LinkedIn, and Tumblr. So, in Python vs. Node JS in use cases, both the backend development languages fare equally. Third Rock Techno’s verdict: Both languages are equal. Community in Python Vs. Node JS Python: Apart from being old, Python is an open-source backend development language. Because of this, Python has a large community and has different contributors who have in-depth industry experience. So, a larger developer’s community can help the business owner develop various applications and consult with the community during difficult circumstances. Node JS: Just like Python, Node JS to has a larger developers’ community that is mature and highly experienced. Moreover, Node JS is an open-source platform with over a decade of existence and presence all over the world. As the backend development language has grown rapidly in the past 13 years, the developers have a large community to rely on in face of difficulties. Therefore, the future of Node JS is highly secured as far as the quantity of developers’ community is concerned. Third Rock Techno’s verdict: Both backend development technologies fare equally. See More: https://www.thirdrocktechkno.com/blog/7-reasons-to-use-nodejs-with-react-for-web-development/ Range of app development in Python Vs Node JS Python: Python as a server-side language is capable of handling various backend development projects irrespective of their size. Python is used for the development of 3D development of games and modeling software, data analysis and visualization, voice and face recognition systems, etc. Node JS: If as a business owner, you are thinking to develop an app that can handle numerous concurrent requests, then you don’t need to look beyond Node JS. In Python vs Node JS comparison, the latter can deliver heavy client-side rendering apps, complex single-page applications, and more. Third Rock Techno’s verdict: Both backend development languages fare equally. Concluding remarks Both Python vs Node JS have perks and perils of their own. Therefore, it is according to the requirement of the app and the visualization of the business owner that the selection between Python Vs Node JS is made. Like Python as a server-side language has a great developers’ community and is efficient in error handling requests. While on the other hand, Node JS is highly scalable and has more speed as compared to Python. Thus, the choice of backend development languages is purely based on the requirement of the project at hand. At Third Rock Techno, we boast a team of experienced Node JS and Python developers who after understanding the business owner’s requirements will cater customized services according to their requirements.
