But even after…

React (also known as ReactJS) is pretty much similar in functionality & features to AngularJS; which is used to design front-end applications. The JavaScript library and the bunch of predefined APIs and functionalities enable developers to design interactive user interface designs. The key difference between ReactJS and AngularJS is that while AngularJS is predominantly used for designing & implementing web applications; ReactJS can be preferred for single-page applications or even mobile applications as well as it has dedicated libraries suiting the specific purpose.

As opposed to ReactJS, NodeJS focuses on server-side functionality and is used to code JavaScript libraries that…

Angular is an open-source application development framework which is used to design and implement both mobile as well as desktop application. The framework is built using TypeScript. There are many users who tend to use Angular & AngularJS interchangeably. Although they are correlated to each other; Angular is not congruent to AngularJS as the latter is primarily a JavaScript framework which is used specifically for front-end development. Therefore, AngularJS is fundamentally a client-side technology.

Now, coming to Node (interchangeably called as NodeJS); although Node and NodeJS may not be exactly the same thing; but they are related to each other…

Node.js is fundamentally a server-side platform which has been designed using the JavaScript engine of Google Chrome. This is one of the most viral & frequently used frameworks by the developer community in implementing & deploying scalable network applications. The key characteristics of Node.js is that it employs an ‘event driven’ and ‘non-blocking input/output model’ which enhances the performance and efficiency of the application & makes it extremely agile and lightweight. To add to it, Node.js is an open source platform; and is compatible with all operating systems supporting JavaScript.

The subsequent sections would deliberate on the key features and…

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are generally created and executed for input/output applications wherein the data from one application flows to another application in the form of a JSON string. This section would explain the various steps ad logic used to create APIs using the ‘Express’ framework on Node.js.

The most preferred approach to designing an API is the ‘REST’ approach. The key advantage of REST APIs is that it’s resource-based i.e. it forms an interface between two or more application wherein the information can flow via URLs formatting as either a JSON string or an XML quote as well. All…

There are a multitude of frameworks that Node.js brings to the table for developers to implement scalable and agile mobile & web applications. While different frameworks are apt for certain specific use-cases, Express is the most popular and frequently used frameworks by the developer community to implement both web as well as mobile applications. Express is the first-choice framework for applications built on top of Node.js. The framework provides a collection of routing libraries which forms a dynamic layer on the web application allowing developers to include custom features on top of the existing Node.js framework.
