Should I use JavaScript for my project?

Javascript (not to be confused with Java) is a high-level programming language, which is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web. It has been standardized in the ECMAScript specification, and it is natively supported by all modern web browsers.

Due to the part it plays in web programming, Javascript is one of the most prolific programming languages of all time. But programming for the web is not all it is used for. Over the years, it has also found a place in

Frontend development with modern web framework Vuejs, Reactjs, ... Backend development with nodejs and exresspjs, ... Mobile development with React Native browser extension development for Chrome, Opera, Safari… Apple Dashboard Widgets, Microsoft Gadgets, Yahoo! Widgets, Google Desktop Gadgets… some NoSQL databases like MongoDB scripting for the Adobe Creative Suite, OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Unity… And this is not even an exhaustive list.

It is undeniable that Javascript has made a great impact, and it is still on the rise. Github statistics show it to be the language with the most active repositories and total pushes, and with new standards being continuously developed and adopted (ES2015, ES2016, and the currently in-progress ES2017), Javascript is shaping up to be a strong contender for the place of the most versatile language of the future.

So, is Javascript the right thing for you?

As mentioned before, Javascript can satisfy virtually all needs of a modern web application. The most commonly known Javascript stack is MEAN — MongoDB, Express, Vuejs, Reactjs, Node.js —, but there are, of course, many other options.

Our developers are highly proficient in several stack configurations, but the one that is most commonly requested by our clients and which has shown to have great potential and flexibility is:

Back-end — Node.js + Express

Node.js is a Javasript runtime based on Chrome’s V8 Javascript Engine, which brings Javascript from the browser to the server. It is event-driven and non-blocking. Node.js, does not support threads, but can make use of multiple processors by spawning child processes and with its clustering support.

It is most commonly used with Express, which is a fast and efficient routing solution with an incredible number of existing middlewares for just about anything you might ever need to include in your application.

Front-end — React + Next.js and Vuejs + Nuxt

React is a Javascript library created by Facebook, which is used for building graphical user interfaces for the web. It takes the place of the V — View — in the common Model-View-Controller pattern, and can work very well combined with the Redux state manager, or even coupled with a front-end framework like AngularJS.

Mobile — React Native

React Native is a way for building full-fledged mobile apps in Javascript. It works on both Android devices and iPhones, and even offers some benefits over platform-native languages, like absence of constant recompiling of code, instant reloading, and hot reloading which includes new code but preserves the current state in the application. While not perfect for applications that require every last atom of device power for maximum performance, like power-hungry games, it is well-suited for most common uses.

Database — MongoDB

MongoDB is a NoSQL database system that uses JSON-like documents with schemas. Javascript can be used in its queries, which, together with the document format, means that it plays very well with any Javascript application. MongoDB can run over multiple servers, as it uses sharding for horizontal load balancing, and has built-in replication systems, which provide automatic fall-back to replicas in case of primary source failure.

Technology

Main differences from other languages Prototypal inheritance While the ES2015 standard brought the class keyword to Javascript, these classes are not an implementation of the classical inheritance, but rather just syntactic sugar for Javascript’s actual inheritance model — prototypal inheritance.

Simply put, prototypal inheritance differs from classical inheritance in the sense that while classical inheritance uses “blueprints”, i.e. classes, from which objects are instantiated, in prototypal inheritance, such blueprints do not exists. In Javascript, objects inherit directly from other objects, which thus become prototypes of the former.

This also means that Javascript uses prototype chains instead of extended classes, and that it does not support multiple inheritance at the same hierarchical level of the parent. A very common pattern to achieve most benefits of multiple inheritance while avoiding some pitfalls thereof, however, is concatenative inheritance.

Functional

Javascript is a multi-paradigm language. It can be used to write both Object-Oriented or Functional code. This is possible because functions are 1st class citizens in Javascript, which means they can be used and passed around as any other value could be. This is aided by the concepts of lexical scope and lexical closures, which enable internal function state preservation even after execution of the outer scope(s) finishes.

Asynchronous

Where most other mainstream languages rely on multi-threading, Javascript instead relies on the internal Event-Loop and uses web workers and child processes to make use of multiprocessor systems. This allows Javascript to avoid many common problems arising from bad thread handling without major performance sacrifice. The asynchronicity also prevents IO-blocking, which is especially crucial in web browsers, where a blocked UI thread could completely ruin the UX.

Variadic functions

Where most languages demand one specify the exact number and often type of function parameters, Javascript allows for passing a smaller or greater number of parameters to functions than explicitly specified. This is highly useful when needing to “pre-load” a function with e.g. just the first two parameters, which binds back to Functional Programming concepts.

Conclusion

Javascript is one of the most widespread programming languages on the planet and will definitely remain so for quite some time. With its domination of the web and rising popularity in mobile development, we would be remiss to not advise you to take it under serious consideration as the language for your project. Our Javascript experts will be happy to talk to you and are certain to alleviate your doubts about it, as they are veterans honed by “Javascripting” at household names like Fox, Twitter, Riot Games etc. We are looking forward to helping you bridge the gap between your plans and the future reality, so do not hesitate and let us know, how we can be of assistance!

Wrapping up

To wrap up, here are a few hints to help you even more: To identify a good JavaScript developer, you have to know JavaScript yourself and know what questions to ask. Otherwise, you won’t understand what applicants present and may end up embarrassing yourself. I recommend getting help from someone who knows JavaScript. Developers aren’t all the same. A reasonable question depends on the candidate’s expertness. Discourse is important. So, find a way to engage a conversation. Finally, the developer’s personality is just as important as their professionalism, because one bad egg can destroy an entire team forever.
