All this while when you were busy implementing PHP codes in your server applications, you just forgot that time flies by. There is a buzz that has taken over the entire world, and everybody is either talking about it or has already implemented it. Yes, that’s node.js. Let’s not get into the minor details, here are the five reasons why you should take a look?
If you thought your server was fast
The ever-growing NPM
Being an open-source technology, node.js has a shared repository of good-to-go tools and modules. The number of modules in the Node Package Manager (NPM) has increased at a considerable pace, just on the verge of overtaking the RoR (Ruby on Rails) gems. And, there are many at a nascent stage. Dealing with the external dependencies is quite simple. The best part is that you can even work on the core applications without knowing what’s around it, and the built-in modules will take care of the rest. Needless to say, the NPM is ultra-fast and robust.
When data streaming is the real deal
I/O bound applications are at a greater advantage with the way streams are managed in node.js. Data Streaming is one of the most powerful applications of node.js given that there are very few to choose from. As a majority of the data that come into the systems are in the form of streams, a lot of time can be saved during the process. The ultimate aim is to utilize the time during another operation, and node.js facilitates just that.
Real-time web apps? No problem!!
If you want better productivity…
The productivity of a web app increases several folds with node.js because a lot of time is saved in between the lines. Merging the front-end and back-end into a single entity makes it efficient. That also implies a lesser number of employees and more profit on your side. PayPal reported 2 times increase in developer productivity after using node.js. What’s your say on that?
Node.js is the present trend. With the top guns like Microsoft and Yahoo switching to node is quite an inspiration for you to choose it, a lot of things are yet to be tested. But that should not stop you from trying it out!!
