Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform designed for sites which offer real-time interaction. Several instances of such sites are online browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. Node.js handles the info sent between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the loading speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. When a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for example, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then submitted as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively in comparison to any traditional system, which can exert a great effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
