There has been a lot talk lately about the rising popularity of Node.js, but no one expected it would grow this quickly. According to Module Counts, there were about 30,000 NPM (Node Packaged Modules) just a year ago. For comparison’s sake, that’s exactly half of what Maven Central, the fastest growing and most successful of all Java repositories, had at the same time. A huge difference.
Today, NPM modules surpassed Maven Central modules, putting its stake in the ground as the top repository in the world. If you weren’t convinced of the exponential growth of the Node community yet, this news should prove it to you. Node.js has a bright future ahead both inside and outside the enterprise.
What’s interesting to us is that several of the attributes that are making Node so popular also set the stage for enterprise use for managing and exploiting the power of Internet of Things. For example, Node.js can manage the floods of requests from IoT devices and wearables via “streams” which can be processed and monitored efficiently. Node.js also has very low resource requirements, a feature that developers are already looking to exploit in an IoT setting.
From wearables to M2M, Node.js sets itself up as an ideal pairing for IoT. We’re excited to see what’s in store for this growing and passionate community!
