Why Choose Node.js for your Project?

Like all technologies, Node.js isn't always the right tool for the job. But it is extremely versatile. Here are some reasons why you might choose Node.js as the foundation for your project.

Reason 1: JavaScript is the Language of the Web

Choosing Node.js as the platform for your web application means that you can use JavaScript on both the frontend and the backend.

This can make for extremely powerful setups because code can easily be shared between the UI and the server.

Also, there are soooo many JavaScript developers out there, which will make it a lot easier to add more people to your team, should you need to.

Reason 2: Node.js is Huge!

Node.js is used by at least 20 million websites and is the most-used framework in the world.

Node.js' package manager npm has over 1.6 million packages that can be used in your own project.

Node.js' gigantic ecosystem is unparalleled and a great reason to choose it as your platform. If there's a problem, you can bet that there's a package or developer out there that can help!

Reason 3: It's Quick to Get Started

In Node.js it's famously possible to create an entire web server in just a few lines of code. Need to connect to a database? No problem, it just takes an npm install and 10 lines of code.

Now of course, real production-ready applications need a bit more than that but it's really quick to get a project started in Node.js. Perfect if you've got no time to lose and want to start building!

Reason 4: Rapid Feedback Loops

When writing a web application for Node.js, there are no long compilation times to wait for. Changes to the code are refelected in the development environment almost instantly which makes the feedback loops insanely fast which keeps the developers in the zone and is great for productivity.

Reason 5: It Scales to the Billions

Node.js is adopted by pretty much all the big tech companies in the world. Amazon, Netflix, eBay, Reddit, LinkedIn and PayPal are just a few of the companies that use Node.js – each of them with millions and even billions of users.

Node.js scales so nicely because apps written for it are meant to be run in multiple processes in parallel. This is very similar to how web servers, VMs and containers scale. Basically, you can run a well-architected Node.js app on just a single machine or on 1000s of machines.

And code written for Node.js stays maintainable as your project evolves because of great tooling such as yarn, ESLint and TypeScript.
