Why Use Node.js for Building eCommerce Applications?

YEREVAN, Armenia - Feb. 4, 2022 - PRLog -- Node.js is a cross-platform runtime environment, built on V8, high-performance open-source JavaScript engine. The technology was first introduced back in 2009 by Ryan Dahl at the annual European JSConf. It is a popular tool for almost any kind of project! Paypal, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Netflix, Uber, eBay used Node.js for their apps.

Node.js is also an ideal platform for building e-Commerce applications. Here are the main reasons to use Node.js for building your e-Commerce application.

It's a Cross-Platform Solution

Node.js is cross-platform compatible which means it runs on various platforms such as Linux and Microsoft Windows. Thus coders save time and build apps quicker with Node.

Frontend and Backend development

As already mentioned, Node.js is a JavaScript-based environment and most of the front-end frameworks such as React, Angular, and Ember are using the same language. Therefore, you don't need to hire an app developer for front-end and backend, as a Node.js app developer can easily understand both sides of the code-base. In other words, with Node.js you can create an e-commerce application, written in one language.

Excellent App Performance

Performance is crucial in e-Commerce platforms where buyers perform multiple tasks such as adding products to the cart, changing product features, choosing payment methods, etc.

Node.js guarantees optimum performance for apps compared to other technologies. The secret is that the code of Node.js is interpreted by the V8 JavaScript engine from Google, which translates JS code to more powerful machine code quickly and easily.


One of the key advantages of Node.js is that it enables quick scalability. In a short period, your e-commerce store can grow substantially. Thus it is an important factor to consider when choosing the technology. Node.js has an inbuilt mechanism that helps manage scalability and adjust it to your individual needs.

An Active Node.js Community

There are a lot of expert developers and product owners in the Node.js community who contribute to the constant improvement of Node.js and can help you with most of your questions. Thanks to this contribution, the framework is well-documented, up-to-date, and continuously supported, which makes the development of an e-Commerce application much easier and faster.

Various Plugins & Packages in NPM

Node's package ecosystem (aka NPM or a node package manager) is the largest and the fastest growing software registry in the world. Developers don't need to write everything from scratch as NPM provides numerous libraries and reusable templates developers can incorporate into their code. This will significantly speed up the development of an e-commerce application.
