The world of developing applications can be a stressful one with many options to choose from on a daily basis. How will your application interact with your devices? How usable will your application be to your user base? And most importantly, how will your application do in terms of interaction and dealing with thousands of user requests via the internet? This is where a good runtime environment can help make things easier on the interaction side of things.
NodeJS works best with SPAs (Single Page Applications) because it’s single-threaded and runs in an asynchronous event loop which runs in the background and it won’t affect event loops. You can also use NodeJS for real-time applications such as chat applications that require WebSocket support. The speed and performance of NodeJS are ideal for micro-services architecture and the ability to write independent APIs code without the need for a server (cloud-based services) can also be achieved with this runtime environment.
