Leading Trends of node.js Development in 2021

node.js Development

The new year has started to roll down and as we move from a pandemic stuck year the hopes are high for 2021. In the domain of web development, the talks are incomplete without the mention of JavaScript. JavaScript has made a popular space for it in the web development world and many websites that are running live on the internet have JavaScript programming supporting them. It is one of the favorite tools of developers and in this case, it is the same for the newbie budding developers and the wholesome professional ones. Talking of JavaScript or commonly known as JS we can’t ignore the node.js. For those of you who are budding developers, and are not much aware of node.js let us explain what it exactly is.

Basically, it is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast and scalable network applications. In technical terms, Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment. It runs on the V8 engine and executes JavaScript code outside a web browser. Since the platform uses JS which is a language known to most developers what we see is a high demand for node.js development company, node.js developer, programmers, etc in the market. Now as you know the basics of it let’s get along with the topic for the day. 

What are going to be the trends in node.js development this year? To find the answer just carry on reading till last. 

Real-Time App Development 

The rise of real-time apps has been quite evident these days. Well, it’s not restricted to the domain of short videos rather other domains have started to ask for real-time apps to interact with the users. That is where the efficacy of the node.js comes into play. An app based on node.js serves thousands of servers for data-intensive and real-time IoT device apps as well. 

Further, as the work from home, online classes, gaming culture is growing amidst the pandemic video conferencing, document sharing, and of course the gaming apps have got a huge demand. Since node.js can power all such apps it would be the go-to choice for the developers. 


Internet of Things (IoT) is the future and has already made roads in the technological domain. From Google Assistant to Alexa and the concept of smart homes is nothing but the manifestations of the IoT. Node.js fits in that frame nicely. The platform is a feature-rich runtime environment that allows developers to implement data-oriented, on-time capabilities, and microservices. Thus with IoT being the future, you can easily develop such apps with node.js.


GraphQL is basically a data query and manipulation language developed by the social media giant Facebook for APIs, and a runtime for fulfilling queries with existing data. The ability of GraphQL to streamline the workflow on multiple platforms has made it a choice of many. The estimates of Facebook show that the trend for GraphQL which has been growing for the past 2 years would only be increasing in 2021. 


The two popular technologies MEAN (dubbed as MongoDB, Express, Angular, Node.JS) and MERN (MongoDB, Express, React, Node.JS) have seen a quick rise and popularity in the recent past. Basically, the MERN is a Javascript Stack that is used for easier and faster deployment of full-stack web applications. Popular OTT platforms like Netflix are also using this one which highlights the efficacy of the thing. 

Apart from being an open-source web and app development framework, it enables a developer to develop complex applications and frontend web apps with relative ease. Thus, we can expect to see a rise in their popularity this year. 

The Scalability 

One of the key demands for an app these days is its ability to handle an increase in users and load, without disrupting the end-users. This is what we called the scalability of the app. Node.js provides an advantage to the developer by providing ease of scaling the applications in horizontal as well as vertical directions. Further, the framework can easily be used by multiple applications as it reduces the logic replication highly enhancing reusability. 

Maientenace Reduction 

While we have been talking about the node.js it is important to mention that it cut-offs factors like hardware and server maintenance. Thus with cost reduction, it adds to the productivity and efficiency of the development. Well, cost reduction is something every project aims at and when tools like node.js can offer that then it’s obvious that they are going to be popular in trend and in demand.

Big Community 

Another major advantage of node.js that has kept it in trend and would add to it this year is the presence of a large community. This means that you don’t have to worry much about any glitch or error as the community adds on their knowledge and improves the framework regularly. Thus, it’s like a place where you add some value you take some knowledge and the overall system thrives on the support and contributions of the members. 

The Full-stack

The framework has the advantage of being a full-stack performer. That is it can serve both the client and server-side which means there is a cost-cutting in face of not going to hire a separate developer for the back and front end.

Ease Of Learning 

Well talking from the perspective of a budding developer this is something that makes the node.js platform a trend as not only it is efficacy but its ease of learning and understanding adds it to the preference of new developers. 

Thus it’s very obvious that node.js has its own advantages over the other frameworks. These add to its efficacy and as a result, we see that a node.js development company and node.js developers are in demand and are occupied with work.

Now as we conclude our discussion we hope by now you have got a nice idea that how the node.js trend would carry on this year and would add on to its usage and popularity amongst the developer community.
