Node.js has revolutionized web development and the Express framework must share much of the credit.

5 Easy Performance Tweaks for Node.js Express

Express may not be the fastest or most advanced server option, but it’s almost certainly the most-used with more than 3 million downloads per month. NodeJS Cheat Sheet. Express.js – Logging Access and Errors. Scaling Node.js Applications. Scaling Node.js applications can be a challenge.

Scaling Node.js Applications

JavaScript’s single threaded nature prevents Node from taking advantage of modern multi-core machines. For example, the following code implements a bare bones HTTP server, which listens on the port number passed in from the command line. This code will execute in a single thread, whether it’s run on a single core machine or a 1,000 core machine. Taking Advantage of Multiple Cores With a little work, the previous code can be modified to utilize all of the available cores on a machine. Scaling Across Machines. Node Cluster and Express. Posted by Rowan Manning () Tagged with Express, JS, Node, Cluster Over the last couple of evenings, I’ve been playing with the Node.js Cluster module and using it to dramatically improve the amount of load Express apps can handle.

Node Cluster and Express

The results have been amazing. The Cluster module is fairly easy to pick up if you’re used to working with Node, but I thought I’d blog about my experience – hopefully it will help you either understand or see the benefit of clustering!

Mastering MEAN: Introducing the MEAN stack

Start your free trial In his 2002 book, David Weinberger described the burgeoning web's content as a collection of Small Pieces Loosely Joined. That metaphor stuck with me, because it's easy to get tricked into thinking of the web as a monolithic technology stack. Actually, every website you visit is the product of a unique mixture of libraries, languages, and web frameworks. One of the earliest collections of open source web technologies to gain prominence is the LAMP stack: Linux® for the operating system, Apache for the web server, MySQL for the database, and Perl (or Python, or PHP) for the programming language used to generate the HTML-based web pages.

An emerging stack that's gaining much attention and excitement in the web community is the MEAN stack: MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, Node.js. “Every website you visit is the product of a unique mixture of libraries, languages, and web frameworks.” From LAMP to MEAN. MEAN Stack: Using with Node.


Express. About this Documentation Node.js v0.12.0 Manual & Documentation. The goal of this documentation is to comprehensively explain the Node.js API, both from a reference as well as a conceptual point of view.

About this Documentation Node.js v0.12.0 Manual & Documentation

Each section describes a built-in module or high-level concept. Where appropriate, property types, method arguments, and the arguments provided to event handlers are detailed in a list underneath the topic heading. Every .html document has a corresponding .json document presenting the same information in a structured manner. This feature is experimental, and added for the benefit of IDEs and other utilities that wish to do programmatic things with the documentation. Node.js v0.12.0 Manual & Documentation. Using Node.js To Create Real-Time Web Applications. In case you haven't heard, Node.js is the hottest new technology that is revolutionizing the web.

Using Node.js To Create Real-Time Web Applications

Some of you don't seem convinced. After all, Ruby on Rails failed to achieve global domination, so why should server-side JavaScript be any different? The biggest distinction is that Node.js is not a server-side language; it is the server. Secondly, it's an incredibly fast and efficient server that scales well. If you've configured Apache's httpd.conf file, you've no doubt seen the StartServers and MinSpareServers settings which keep a specified number of idle Apache servers running in order to bypass the time required to start servers for new connections. Node tells the operating system (through epoll, kqueue, /dev/poll, or select) that it should be notified when a new connection is made, and then it goes to sleep.

Creating RESTful APIs With NodeJS and MongoDB Tutorial (Part II) - Adrian Mejia’s Blog. Welcome to this RESTful API using Node.js (Express.js) and MongoDB (mongoose) tutorial. You can follow alone to make a stand alone API endpoint, or you could also check out our AngularJS or BackboneJS tutorials to build a javascript-client that connects with the endpoint we are going to built.

What RESTful API really means? REST stands for Representational State Transfer. It is an architecture that allows client-server communication through a uniform interface. They are also stateless, cachable and has property called idempotence, which means that the side effect of multiple identical requests have the same effect as the same single request. HTTP RESTful API’s are compose of:
