Node.JS Server on Ubuntu Server 20.04

Node.js® is a JavaScript runtime built on Chromes V8 JavaScript engine. As an asynchronous event-driven JavaScript runtime, Nodejs is designed to build scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

Node.js is an open source, cross-platform runtime environment for developing server-side and networking applications. Node.js applications are written in JavaScript, and can be run within the Node.js runtime on Linux.

Over 6,000 open source packages on NPM. The Node community has many open source projects available to help you save time. These libraries range from simple helpers and charts to full blown frameworks. The idea of NPM modules is quite similar to that of Ruby Gems: a set of publicly available, reusable components, available through easy installation via an online repository, with version and dependency management.

NodeJS Features:

  • Asynchronous and Event Driven: All APIs of Node.js library are asynchronous, that is, non-blocking. It essentially means a Node.js based server never waits for an API to return data. The server moves to the next API after calling it and a notification mechanism of Events of Node.js helps the server to get a response from the previous API call.
  • Very Fast: Being built on Google Chromes V8 JavaScript Engine, Nodejs library is very fast in code execution..
  • Single Threaded but Highly Scalable: Node.js uses a single threaded model with event looping. Event mechanism helps the server to respond in a non-blocking way and makes the server highly scalable as opposed to traditional servers which create limited threads to handle requests. Node.js uses a single threaded program and the same program can provide service to a much larger number of requests than traditional servers like Apache HTTP Server.
  • No Buffering: Node js applications never buffer any data. These applications simply output the data in chunks.
  • Node.JS Support
