Both iOS and Android app developers find Node.js app development very interesting with easy code and modular design. Also, the platform needs fewer lines of code as compared to other frameworks. Node.js is a robust platform to make apps that can manage many requests a second. It can reduce the response time by thirty-five percent as well.
Modular design enables the mobile app developers to build Node.js apps within 30 days (basic app). Chat, games, and other real-time apps can get a great support from a modular design. In a way, the modular design makes the entire Node.js ecosystem more interesting, scalable, and flexible.

NodeSource is a rich source of information like what HortonWorks is to Hadoop. It can give an instant support, provide resources, and resolve Node.js problems for the developers. Even entrepreneurs can get useful information from NodeSource.
- Dynamic NPM (Node Package Manager)
One of the biggest advantages of Node.js is its dynamic Node Package Manager. It is the main ecosystem that currently manages over 300,000 packages. It is about to surpass the RoR (Ruby on Rails) platform. Every day, over 300 new packages have been added to this platform. This number is at least three times more than any other ecosystems.
The super fast NPM also assists app developers to handle the dependency management. Dependencies can make the apps easier to utilize and embrace the changes and features.
