A Beginner’s Guide to npm: The Node Package Manager

Node.js allows you to write applications in JavaScript on the server. It has been written in C++ and built on V8 JavaScript runtime, which makes it fast and reliable. It was initially invented for the better server environment, but now developers use it to build tools to aid them in local task automation. After that, a new network of Node-based tools starts growing to alter the face of front-end development.
Node.js also has a vast ecosystem of libraries that are known as NPM (Node Package Manager) modules. It is considered as the most extensive software packages library in the world having over 600,000 packages. The npm allows users to install the packages that they want to use with a user-friendly interface. The Node.js installation comes with Command Line Interface that allows users to interact with the packages on their local machine.

How to Use Node.js for Your Website and Application

Node.js is built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine and one of the popular open-source JavaScript runtime environments, which can be used to create a website, upload files, and create a TCP App on ECS. In this article, you will get some useful information on these.
How to Build a TCP Application With Node.js on ECS
Before you start the process, you will need a machine running a Linux/Unix distribution such as Ubuntu or macOS, a code editor/IDE with Node.js installed on it, and a basic working knowledge of Node.js.

Node.js and Yarn for Happy Local Package Development

This is not another praise piece for npm package management with Yarn, but rather a concise recipe for working with locally developed packages.
npm modules begin their lives when you init them on your local dev machine, but there comes a point when you want to test them out or simply use them with other Node.js projects you have.

Full-Stack Vue App With Node, Express, and MongoDB

Much of application development, including web applications, has to do with CRUD – creating, reading, updating, and deleting data. Today, we will be building a full stack Vue note-taking application and showing you how to perform the aforementioned processes, using Node.js running the Express.js framework for the backend, and MongoDB to store our data.
Below is a preview of the application we will be building:

How to Create a Simple Application With Redis Cloud and Node.js

Sometimes I “think" in Redis. It’s a bit hard to describe, but I tend to think of real-life problems in terms of how I would solve them in Redis (I… think it might be a sickness). I’ve been renovating my house for a couple of years now and one of the most unexpected challenges is dealing with how long it takes to plaster, paint, apply adhesive and the like to dry and cure. Some things take weeks to cure before you can move on to the next step. I had a minor annoyance/disaster this weekend and I told myself that I’m not going to let it happen again. So… off to Redis to do an application speedrun.
In this post, I’m going to build a small application that uses Node.js and Redis Enterprise Cloud to keep track of when things are "dry" or cured. You can record when you applied "paint" (we just use this as a generalized "material" but it could be anything) and it won’t let you paint again if it’s not dry. Finally, you can also check on the status of a coat of paint by finding out how long it’s got left. I know, it’s elegant, yet way over-engineered — I’ll have VC funding in no time!

Node.js Tutorial for Beginners (Part 4): Making an App Responsive With Bootstrap

Introduction and Project Refresh
Throughout this series, we’ve been building an application to keep track of the National Parks we’ve visited. In the last article, we looked at how to transfer data between two Express-based web pages using the body-parser middleware. In this post, we’ll look at how to style our pages and make them responsive using the open source Bootstrap framework.
Quick PSA: If you’re smart, you’ll do what I didn’t and wait to make any CSS tweaks until after Bootstrap has been properly integrated and all our elements are responsive.

Node.js Tutorial for Beginners (Part 3): Transferring Data Between Pages

In the previous article in this Node.js for beginners series, we went over the three popular templating engines for working with Node/Express-based applications: Pug, Mustache, and EJS. After choosing EJS, we set about creating the basic HTML make-up of the application. It wasn’t anything super fancy, but we created two web pages that rendered basic HTML. In this post, we’ll examine how to connect these two EJS pages and transfer data between them.
Project Recap
I’ll be basing the app I work on in this series of a project from a Udemy course (found here) that I’ve been using on-and-off for a while. I love to travel, and the US National Parks are some of my favorite places to go. To teach myself Node.js, Express.js, templating engines, and Bootrap, I’m going to design an application to keep track of my park travels. In this edition of the series, we’ll learn how to transfer data between to EJS pages, allowing us to add our park pictures and names to our app.

Node.js Tutorial for Beginners (Part 2): Working With Templating Engines

Welcome back to our series on Node.js for beginners! Last time, we went over the advantages of using Node.js and Express, got our environment set up, and coded up some basic web pages. In today’s post, we’ll go over the roles of templating engines in Node.js applications and figure out how to use them to get some basic HTML markup onto our pages.

Node.js Tutorial for Beginners (Part 1): Intro to Node and Express

Over the course of the past year and a half, I’ve been slowly, and a bit sporadically, teaching myself web development technologies. I’ve had some success with HTML, CSS, and basic, vanilla JavaScript (you can see some of my Fiddles here). But now I’m interested in diving into Node.js, and I’m using this series to chronicle my journey. Hopefully, I’m not in over my head, but, even if I am, I hope this will help fellow novices or experienced devs new to Node and JavaScript. 
Node.js is a fascinating technology with a quickly growing user base. Though it’s often referred to as a framework, Node actually functions as a JavaScript runtime, powered by Google’s V8 engine — the same engine used to power the Chrome browser. Thus, Node essentially takes the place of the browser in the execution of JavaScript code. This allows developers to use JavaScript, a language designed to be compiled and run on the client-side, on the server-side, making a full-stack JavaScript application possible. In addition to that, Node is a pretty scalable solution, as proven by its adoption by several large-scale organizations, including Netflix, Uber, PayPal, and NASA.
