node.js forum category?

Recommended Posts

Has a node.js forum category been considered? I have found a node.js specific forum, but the

traffic there appears to be mostly nil.

 

As I read the Apress text about it, it does not appear to be to usable accept as a local

application server that would be intalled on 'localhost' and used with a localhost browser

interface. I don't see how it would be used with a registered domain name, accept via a

non standard, high numbered port.

 

Someone did not like my last posts on stackoverflow and I don't know why, so I can't go there.

 

Thanks

Until popularity increases (as measured by the number of posts about it), it's probably sufficient to put those in the Javascript forum.

Where is that forum?

 

There is a JavaScript forum. Isn't that enough?

Agree.

Is there a JQuery sub forum?

Do you know the new Norwegian web browser Vivalidi? Vivaldi use node.js.

Node.js has increased dramatically in popularity and is supported with a tutorial on W3Schools: https://www.w3schools.com/nodejs/default.asp

It has a wide range of real world uses and can serve as the main server in lighter applications with low to medium traffic (depends on hardware, etc.)

It is also used in real heavy applications in fact - but in that context not as the primary server.

In heavy applications, it is very popular to use Node.js for "microservices". 

With microservices: Another server like Apache HTTPD, Tomcat or the newer Glassfish can serve as the primary server dealing with the heavy load.

The microservice approach can among other things, take a variety of lighter sub-applications off the primary server - to be handled on other machines using Node.js.

An easy way to get started is with JavaScript Servlets. http://hll.nu/achieve
