Future of Node.js?

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment that runs on a JavaScript Engine and executes JavaScript code outside a web browser, which was designed to build scalable network applications.

What is NodeJS used for?

5 Core Features of Node.js

  1. ASYNC hook is a main module in Node.js that has an API to track asynchronous resources — objects with a callback — in a Node’s app.
  2. Node Package Manager (NPM) is the instrument that publishes the open-source projects written in Node.js. Also, it ensures package installation, dependency and version management.
  3. NODE_Report contains a diagnostic summary about development and testing to store data for problem determination. It has native stack and JavaScript traces, resource usage, heap statistics, and other components.
  4. Single-threaded model is the system that processes, prioritizes multiple tasks and executes them in the asynchronous way.
  5. NODE_OPTION ensures that command lines can be implemented in the environment variable — a dependency that runs a code.
