Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly enhance the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it is submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site expands and there are a lot of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or live chat programs, for example, and lots of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
