What is Node.js?
The npm modules idea is a publicly available set of reusable components, which are available through simple installation via an online repository, with both version and dependency management.
The architecture of Node.js work
Node.js has a limited set of thread pools of requests processing.Node.js queues requests as they come in.Then comes the Single-Threaded Event Loop – the core component that waits indefinitely for requests.The loop picks up the request in the queue as it arrives and verifies if it requires an I/O blocking operation. If the request doesn’t have a blocking I/O operation, the loop processes it and sends a response.If the request appears to have a blocking operation, the loop creates a thread from the internal thread pool to control the request. As soon as the blocking task is handled, the event loop continues monitoring blocking requests and queues them. That’s called a non-blocking nature.
