What is Vanilla JS versus Node JS?
written by S Rifana, edited by Julia H
It’s advantages are that VanillaJS allows for cross-compilation and supports interfaces, modules, and classes. It can be used for both frontend and backend development so that it may run on different devices.
Some of its disadvantages are that:
-It makes use of limited libraries.
-A single error may destroy the entire website.
Some of its advantages are:
-The Node.js library’s APIs are all asynchronous or non-blocking. It simply means that a Node.js based server never waits to return data from an API. After calling an API, the server passes on to the next one, and a Node.js notification mechanism assists the server in receiving a response from the previous API call.
However, everything has its own disadvantages.
-One of the big disadvantages of Node.js is its lack of consistency. The API changes regularly, which increases the developers’ problems because they’ll have to make changes to their current code base to maintain compatibility.
-It doesn’t support multi-threading programming, and it is not with the development of heavy computing applications.
In conclusion, there is no real answer as to choosing between VanillaJS versus NodeJS — it all depends on what your project is all about, and what you need to make it successful.
