  • Node.js can reduce the complexity of app development 
  • It uses a unified language in both front-end and back-end development
  • Only requires installation on the server-side
  • Better reflects the separation of concerns and lower coupling
  • It uses the Apache/Nginx proxy
  • Makes it easier to find a suitable package
