Node.js development services - what is node.js?

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime environment that allows you to use the same programming language—one of the most popular out there—to write the backend and frontend of your app. It’s the optimal choice for launching your project and building your MVP quickly through efficient full-stack development.

What’s more, the shorter time-to-market doesn’t mean you sacrifice on quality. Node.js developers have a great understanding of product technologies because they’re close to JS, and JS is known for being dynamic yet managed so well that it’s also stable. This unique blend of features makes it easy to scale your teams and get to work right away.

Powered by Google Chrome’s V8 engine and modeled after systems like Python’s Twisted or Ruby’s EventMachine, Node.js is often considered a natural replacement for PHP. The technology is maintained by the OpenJS Foundation, which is part of the Linux Foundation, and enjoys very strong support from the JavaScript development community.

Node.js development - benefits and advantages of node.js
High dynamic and stability

These are the two top features of Node.js that allow you to work very fast without compromising the quality of the software developed.

Fast MVP building with short time-to-market

Leveraging the potential of full-stack development made easy by using the same engineers, you’ll launch your project, build your MVP, and get your product to the market in no time.

Credible and reliable solution for big projects

The OpenJS Foundation is run by the same people as the Linux Foundation, and Linux is the largest open-source resource out there. Thanks to this robust management and maintenance, both Linux and Node.js are known to be trustworthy and dependable.

Perfect fit for team extension and scaling up

Because you can engage your frontend JavaScript developers to work on the backend with Node.js, scaling your team up is both quick and easy.

Top technology choice for the cloud

Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform all have very high integration with Node.js. Many cloud platforms recommend growing with the technology.

Great connectivity and smart device support

There is no better fit for supporting many connections than Node.js. Thanks to this excellent connectivity and dynamic combination of frontend and backend, you’ll also find that it’s the go-to tech choice for connecting your smart devices, for instance, with the Internet of Things.

Deeply integrated developer workflow

Node.js is used somewhere under the hood in one way or another across all of the frontend work focused on JavaScript. Whenever web apps are being built, Node.js can be found there.

Versatility and simple tech stack combination

The V8 engine can work on the server alongside additional Node.js components like libuv that are perfect for creating sockets. Also, this isn’t limited only to HTTP.

Friendly community of passionate developers

While technologies like PHP seem to be going the way of the dodo, building software with Node.js gives developers immense satisfaction and the support for it keeps on growing.

One development team—all the benefits

By having the same people write your backend and frontend, you only need to work with one team of engineers. All you need is JS developers who are also Node.js experts—like ours.

Which Node.js technologies

do we have the most experience in?
  • icon-type-script TypeScript
  • icon_graphql GraphQL
  • icon_express@2x Express
  • icon_serverless@2x Serverless

Simply put, TypeScript is JavaScript that scales. We prefer to use TS for our projects to make up for the common problems of plain JS: scalability issues, weak readability, low maintainability, and lack of static typing. We can also gradually rewrite your codebase from JavaScript to TypeScript.

Because TypeScript provides better auto-completion, we’re able to write code in it much faster, avoiding typos and various errors before we even run the code. Debugging is also made easier in TS, which is a big reason why its popularity continues to steadily grow.

GraphQL is a query language for your API that provides a complete and understandable description of the data. It also gives you the ability to ask exactly for what you need and nothing more, makes it easier to grow APIs over time, and enables powerful development tools.

Growing your API in GraphQL allows you to dynamically adjust to changes in the project and helps you maintain comprehensive documentation. Notably, more and more large companies are adopting GraphQL as their public API, allowing other services to integrate with it.

Express is the go-to framework for Node.js that facilitates connecting with the largest number of middlewares and plugins. When it comes to creating REST APIs in Node.js, Express has the best documentation of them all.

Express has been around for virtually as long as Node.js itself and no other framework is more popular among Node.js projects. While trendy and flashy frameworks keep coming and going, Express remains on top and continues to serve as a reference point to develop new tools.

Our Node.js specialists are well-versed in Express. They know not only how to maintain and support the framework, but also migrate it to other platforms.

Serverless is both a computing model and web framework for creating scalable solutions if you want your product to grow indefinitely and need variable computing power during the day or week. Rest assured, though—we have strong competencies in both.

Serverless computing is becoming the standard for cloud services and competition to microservices. All of the main cloud service providers have their own approaches to code deployment and we can adjust your custom solutions to the specific services you’re using.

The Serverless Framework, on the other hand, is a great choice for developing proofs of concept and avoiding vendor lock-in. It allows you to grow your product quickly when you haven’t decided on the provider yet—you can do that later—and launch your project fast by deploying to any cloud service.

Comparison
of Node.js
and Python

STX Next is Europe’s largest Python software house—so why wouldn’t we just pitch you Python instead of Node.js for backend development?

That’s because for all of Python’s amazing qualities—and we do believe in the language wholeheartedly—there are certain aspects where Node.js gives it a run for its money.

Most of all, the fact that Node.js allows you to use JavaScript on both the frontend and backend is a big deal.

Node.js developers need to be JS developers, which makes it really easy to scale your team and save precious development time.

While we’re on the subject of developers, Node.js enjoys an incredibly strong community of enthusiasts that contributes to an exponential growth of JavaScript packages.

Node.js is also a great solution for the Internet of Things and boasts the world’s largest package manager: npm.

Ultimately, though, the choice between the two languages should come down to the strength and preference of your developers.

Python may be superior to Node.js in a lot of ways, but it can’t be said that there’s a clear winner in this contest.

Credit Rubric
Industry: Fintech

Credit Rubric

Credit Rubric is a platform that helps traders make better business decisions by collecting and displaying data regarding high-yield bonds and performing complex calculations.

A UK-based data analytics tool for European debt securities, Credit Rubric offers independent quantitative analysis combining financial performance, credit metrics, and market pricing. Their main goal is to store and share information regarding high-yield bonds, the issuing companies, all details of the bonds, as well as up-to-date information.

Credit Rubric tasked STX Next with building an MVP of their system that will display yield calculation details and financial performance statistics to users searching for high-yield bonds. We succeeded by delivering Node.js REST services, implementing Angular for the backend and React for the frontend, as well as using ElasticSearch for efficient indexing and data searching.

KeyIngredient
Industry: Food & Beverages

KeyIngredient

KeyIngredient is a social platform built around cooking, where every food enthusiast will find something to enjoy. Their website features over 2.2 million recipes from cooks worldwide that can be added, shared, and collected into cookbooks.

Based in Austin, Texas and founded in 2005, KeyIngredient has over 3 million unique visitors every month. They’re part of Groupe SEB, with their largest demographic segment consisting of millennial home cooks.

When KeyIngredient first approached us for development support, their website had poor SEO optimization, insufficient loading speed, as well as unused features and outdated libraries with a lot of legacy code.

Our development team optimized KeyIngredient’s website for SEO, implemented an ElasticSearch cluster to make their product more reliable, and refactored their most frequently used APIs to increase performance on the most viewed subpages.

We were looking to move our Python & Django development out of London, to save money but also to find a good quality Agile team approach that included some product ownership. STX Next was able to provide the high quality dev team alongside project management. This fact combined with the costs savings from moving away from London made it a simple decision.

It was a pleasure working with the team at STX Next. Collaboration and communication worked like a charm and made our first foray into hiring outside help a big success. The developed tool included technology we were able to extract as a library and made the effort even more worthwhile. Looking forward to our next endeavor.

Sebastian Kral
Global Head of Pipeline @ Pixomondo

The team is very product oriented - they try to understand the product and its end users. This means that there are more sets of eyes looking after potential User Experience issues, which results in a better product.

We were able to scale up instantly, adding developers with the specific technical expertise that we needed and then rotating them out when the problem had been solved. At a much smaller firm that would have been very difficult. So far there hasn’t been any challenge that STX Next hasn’t been able to overcome.
