Node.js is an open-source server environment compatible with many platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It is free to use and utilised by many companies, from small businesses to huge multi-national conglomerates such as PayPal, Netflix, and LinkedIn.
There are many uses for Node.js, including the generation of dynamic web content, collection of form data, and modifications to a database. It is mainly used to develop server-based applications that need an ongoing connection to a server. Examples of this include news feeds, chat boxes, and push notifications.
Of course, Node.js isn’t suitable for everything – like most other technologies, it has its limits. At Orthogonality, we’ll work with you to decide on the most appropriate way forward for your project, whether this is Node.js or another of the technologies we’re adept at using.
