Key Points – Node.JS

  • Open Source
  • Cross Platform
  • Javascript Runtime Environment
  • Execute in Server Side
  • Runs on V8 Engine
  • Written in (JS) + (C++)

Version History

Why Node.JS Special?

Let’s get Idea of Why we use Node.JS

Javascript Everywhere

Allowing web application development to unify around a single programming language, rather than rely on a different language for writing server side scripts

Server Side JS

Javascript used primarily for client-side scripting, Node.js enables JavaScript to be used for server-side scripting

Key Features


Node.js operates on a single thread, using non-blocking I/O calls, allowing it to support tens of thousands of concurrent connections without incurring the cost of thread context switching.


V8 is the JavaScript execution engine built for Google Chrome and open-sourced by Google in 2008. Written in C++, V8 compiles JavaScript source code to native machine code instead of interpreting it in real time.

Package management

npm is the pre-installed package manager for the Node.js server platform. It is used to install Node.js programs from the npm registry, organizing the installation and management of third-party Node.js programs.


Unified API

Node.js can be combined with a browser, a database supporting JSON data. With the adaptation of what were essentially server-side development patterns such as MVC, MVP, MVVM, etc

Event loop

Node.js registers itself with the operating system in order to be notified when a connection is made, and the operating system will issue a callback.


Who Uses Node.JS?

PHP Way & Node.JS Way

What Node.JS Can Do?

  • Node.js can generate dynamic page content

  • Node.js can collect form data
  • Node.js can add, delete, modify data in your database

Getting Started !

var http = require(‘http’);

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
    res.writeHead(200, {‘Content-Type’: ‘text/html’});
    res.end(‘Hello World!’);

Type This Code and Save it As myfirst.js in Known Location,

Then Open Command Line Tool and Navigate to the Location that we saved our js File.

D:/first>node myfirst.js

Check node version and npm version

Open Note pad and make Hello world application and Run . 

Run on server 8080

    That’s where I constantly battle and also I just wind up looking empty screen for
    very long time.
