- Here come the results of our mini-survey: – – According to our survey, Node.js is a great option for developers who like to get their apps into production as fast as possible.
- To understand why developers love & use Node.js, let me just show you a sample of the responses we got: – – When we asked developers about what they actually build with Node, the answers gave a pretty clear picture.
- The answers were pretty hard to synthesise into coherent subgroups, but I tried my best in categorizing them: – – Although these answers are hard to categorize, I think they still provide useful insights into the problems & minds of Node.js developers.
- The results were not surprising, the hegemony of AWS is clear: – – It looks like that React leads the front-end framework war – when it comes to Node.js developers who need to pick one: – – In case you’d like to learn more about it, read 8 Tips to…

- With Node.JS Build process simplified by using the same Language – – Complicated build tools like Ant and Maven have revolutionized Java programming.
- Java for Solid Engineering – – It’s a bit hard to quantify, but many of the complex packages for serious scientific work are written in Java because Java has strong mathematical foundations.

- It provides an async validation function that follows the common Node.js callback style: taking a (err, value) = … function as the last argument.
- Using callbacks is the preferred Node way to deal with async code, however I’d rather use promises and the new async/await syntax.To solve my problem I wrote a custom function that wraps the library and uses Promises.This version can be used in async functions with ease.After an extraction I got…
- After some self-punishment I refactored and removed all my code.Node’s promisify is slightly different from my custom version: it has a way to deal with functions that do not follow the common Node.js callback style.
- For example, there are functions that have separated success and callback errors: (arg, onSuccess, onError) = …. To handle this cases, Node provides a special symbol promisify.custom to set a factory in the source function.It’s possible to bake this into our custom version with little effort.Node also provides a complementary callbackify…
- If you are using an older version you can backport this function with little effort.
