What is the use of Node.js?
The runtime environment is used in server-side programming, especially for building high-performance cross-platform applications. Node.js comes with an array of open-source frameworks, packages, and tools to streamline development, enabling e.g. reusing code for faster implementations. The NPM (Node Package Manager) is constantly growing and provides solutions for faster development. The runtime environment allows for the time-efficient development of fast web applications capable of handling large traffic in real-time.
