Tips and Best Practices for Node.js Development Services
Find few tips on Node.js development and its best practices
Start your project with NPM init
Stop writing bash scripts and start organizing your project with NPM scripts. Developers have been looking at NPM simply as a method of installing dependency however it has a lot more to offer than this. Node Package Manager allows you to add metadata; this proves to be useful for those who work on the same project as everyone will have the same setup.
Use environment variables
Take advantage of the environment variables right from the beginning of the project to make sure all the data is secured. Node.js advises to use environment variables and look up the values in your code from process.env.
Try using a style guide
Using a style guide will make you an even more productive developer as it is easy to understand code on a code base when it has consistency.
Node.js is a single-threaded programming language hence there are possibilities that synchronous components will lock the entire application and will not allow any other code to run before they are complete. Therefore this makes the flow of the application logic much easier to understand.
Thought you might be avoiding the use of synchronous methods there are possibilities that unknowingly external library might block call and reduce the performance.
The most recommended way is to use asynchronous APIs for critical sections. This is an essential tip to keep in mind especially while choosing a third party module to ensure the security.
We hope you find these tips useful and would like to implement while developing new projects. Technostacks being a leading NodeJS development company provides an extensive array of application development services.
