A local development environment is where all the development happens, after which devs push it to a live production server. In this article, you will set up a local web development environment on your computer for building modern web apps in Node.js and React. This setup is also suitable for other frontend frameworks like Vue, Angular, and Svelte.
Node JS is the first backend platform I learned and it helped me build full-stack applications. In this article, I will talk a little about Node and the concepts that go around this runtime environment. So to answer your question in simple terms,
Right out of the bat you must have figured it out what open-source and cross-platform means.
Today I am going to help you pick the correct version of Node JS to use. When you are just getting started and about to download Node JS, you will be presented with 2 confusing versions to choose from. It’s not a big of a deal but for public service here’s my simple answer:
Which Node JS version to use? 20 LTS. You should always use even-numbered versions marked LTS that says “Recommended for Most Users” on the download page. An even number Node version is 16.x.x LTS, 18.x.x LTS, 20.x.x LTS and so on that you should use when learning or deploying your project to a production environment.
Whenever you go out and try to learn how to configure a web server with Node JS, you will see that the first thing the instructor does is to install Express. Just like you, I always wondered why most people use Express JS and is there another way to build a server without it?
Why Express JS is used in Node JS? Express JS is a minimal framework for building web applications in Node JS. It makes the process of creating a server simple with built-in methods that’s why Express JS is widely used and is the de facto framework for Node.
You are just getting started with web development and wondering how much time it takes to learn Node JS to be able to build something, like a social network, a chat application, or a SaaS to put it out there. Or maybe you are just wondering what are the skills you will need to become job-ready within a few months time. Well, my friend, you are in luck because today I am going to tell you exactly how long it takes to become a full-stack developer using Node JS sharing my own learning experience.
How much time does it take to learn Node JS? It takes around 3 months to fully learn Node JS and be able to build a functional full-stack application. If you already know some other programming, you can get the basics down within a few week’s time.
Node is often compared with other backend languages such as PHP and Python, but is it actually a language? Today I am going to answer that question once and for all.
Today I am going to tell you what programming language you should learn if you want to build a social networking site like Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, or Instagram.
I started learning how to work with pure Node webserver (without Express or any other packages) The best way to solidify the learning is to build something with the knowledge. However, with the limited scope of the lesson, I couldn’t find a project to build.
I’m playing Fruit Ninja these days. After every round, it shows interesting fruit facts. I got an idea to make an API that will display random fruit facts in JSON format. This way I can put my knowledge to use while building something fun.
What do you do with your user’s password? Do you store it into the database?
You should never store the raw password into your application.
Some badly coded websites store the raw password into their database.
They store the actual password and even send you via email:
This means your password is at risk.
(by the way, I didn’t code that website, I used a plugin called DAP in WordPress)
