Node News TLDR / Table of Contents

  • Introduction to Node.js
    • Learn how to install Node and run a basic Node application. We will talk about what Node actually is and why you would ever want to use it.
    • node, node command, Node process, Node application, new Node process
  • IoT With HTML5 Game Engine And Node.JS
    • In this article, I will tell you how to use node.js as a bridge between an HTML 5 game and IoT by using Johnnyfive.io and Phaser.io.
    • new coming IoT, x-y coordinates, Node.js Web services, IoT world, small node.js application
  • The Fall of the House of Node – JavaScript Non Grata –
    • TJ Holowaychuk, a long-time Nodist (from a Nodist colony?) who has contributed much to Node, finally abandoned Node in favour of Go. TJ writes: TJ is right, Go generally does outperform Node in terms…
    • node, Node’s direction, outperform Node, sufficiently good reason, best tool
  • To get started with Node we only need two things a web browser and the terminal, also known as the command line on Linux or the command prompt on Windows.
  • Node was created when developers took JavaScript, something you could usually only run inside a web browser, and they made it run on our machine as a standalone process.
  • Both Node and JavaScript inside of a web browser are running on the exact same engine called Chrome V8.
  • This is the communication between our Node application and other things like reading or writing to a database or making an HTTP request to another web server.
  • Once we are there we can run the node command and pass in the file name as an argument to run our application.

  • Using IoT and Machine learning technologies, a distributed system is created which is called industry 4.0.
  • I will show how to develop industry 4.0 system by using IoT, NoSQL, and Node.js Web services.
  • A distributed system is a model in which components located on networked computers communicate and coordinate their actions by passing messages.
  • Arduino can be burned or you can decide to change Arduino because of the new coming IoTtechnologies.
  • Maybe your boss can decide to keep the road with Raspberry PI so new things can be inserted in the above system.

  • In the past week Ive rewritten a relatively large distributed system in Go, and its robust, performs better, its easier to maintain, and has better test coverage since synchronous code is generally nicer and simpler to work with.TJ is right, Go generally does outperform Node in terms of JSON serialization…
  • In particular, Eric points out two reasons why front-end developers use Node: – The frontend devs can work on the backend!
  • Node by itself is not a sufficiently good reason.
  • People have been creating fast, powerful server solutions for decades in languages other than JS.
  • They need to be written in powerful languages that afford you solid engineering capabilities, such as sophisticated debugging and testing, and economical maintainability (i.e., producing a code base imbued with clarity and readability and the ability to reason easily).
