Node.js download and install

Node.js is a cross-platform JavaScript runtime environment based on Chrome‘s V8 JavaScript engine. It can be used to program JavaScript code that can be executed outside the web browser.

Most importantly, it’s open-source and released under an MIT license.

What is Node.js used for?

Developers and programmers use it to write command-line tools in JavaScript and perform server-side scripting. If this is all confusing to you, allow us to reiterate.

Server-side scripting helps run scripts server-side in order to generate dynamic content on the web page before actually sending the page to your web browser.

Node.js also unifies web app development by using a single programming language (JavaScript). This saves programmers from a lot of hassle by avoiding using different languages for client- and server-side scripts.

  • Operating system: Windows 10
