One of the most widely used programming languages worldwide is JavaScript. Today, it powers millions of websites, and it has drawn hordes of programmers and designers to create new web features. 

For the first 20 years of its existence, client-side scripting was the dominant use of JavaScript. Between the front-end and back-end components, developers had to work in several languages and frameworks because JavaScript could only be utilised within the script tag. Later emerged Node.js, a run-time environment that has all the components needed to run a JavaScript programme.

What is Node.js?

Node.js is an open-source, single-threaded, cross-platform runtime environment for creating networking and server-side applications that are quick and scalable.
