Therefore, let’s not waste any more time and get into it right away.
Combine the Two Sides
The most obvious and common way to use this language is to use it where the server-side code serves data needed for the client’s work and the client-side to build but also be able to update user interfaces.
If you are making a mobile or a desktop application, the client-side is no longer exclusive to the web browser since these apps are also titled as client-side. This aspect happens since modern apps typically depend on external data. They summon data from a server and process it in various ways, where the server is usually a JSON API.
For instance, if you decide to build a mobile app for a social network with React Native, which is a framework that is actually owned by Facebook, and the app allows people to comment, post, chat, like, and so on, then you will most likely be in need of an API in order to allow storage, data retrieval, etc.
That’s why using Node.js for this situation is a compelling advantage since, thanks to the Node.js event-driven non-blocking runtime environment, it is impressively fast. Therefore, all of your clients will have an excellent experience and a genuinely fast response. Furthermore, Node.js can support HTTP requests, but what is even more impressive is that it can support WebSockets for bi-directional connections and communications in real time between people.
