How Node.js Works ?

Node.js contains everything needed to run a program written in JavaScript. If you have coded with the Java programming language before, here is a visually easier explanation.



Node.js; It arose out of wanting to use a JavaScript code as an application that will run independently not only in browsers but also on your computer.


Thus, JavaScript has ceased to be a technology used only for web applications, and has reached the same capacities as programming languages such as Python and Java. Because the V8 engine converts JavaScript code to machine code, applications can achieve very fast performances.
