Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can considerably boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small bits of info. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the second any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the site expands and there are a lot of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat portals, for instance, and lots of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
