With Node.js you can not only quickly build stable and scalable web applications using modules and packages, but also customising each element with it is easier than with any other backend technology available.
Even if you don't plan it, your app should be ready for customization
However, if your web app gains traction, you can be almost sure that sooner or later you will need to customise it to meet the particular needs of the stakeholders. The good news is that if you choose Node.js as your backend technology any modifications shouldn’t be a problem.
In the long term, it’s a significant advantage. When you plan to create an app, you have to take many stakeholders into consideration: end users (customers), business partners, investors, your own (or your client's) vision, regulators (there’s alwaysanother GDPR surprise waiting around the corner), and finally, what the software developers think.
Each of these groups has its impact on the application you are building. Furthermore, each one of them can most likely be divided into subgroups. What’s more, their impact will change with time and the growth of your project.
The dynamic interactions between the stakeholders over time make the application environment a complex system that will evolve unpredictably over time. That is why it is essential for the software you will create to be able to adapt to changes that are impossible to foresee. While your business plan should be flexible, the technical side of your project should adapt to future pivots even more efficiently.
Taking all of the above into consideration, Node.js seems to be the best backend technology choice. First of all, Node.js is modular. The framework doesn't have strict rules for development or a given architecture you have to stick to when planning your web application’s functionalities.
It's so much easier to customise independent modules
Developers can build each module ("node") with a different set of tools (web services, packages, programmes, frameworks, etc.), which makes Node.js conveniently adaptive to change. When you come up with an idea for a functionality, your software engineers can respond by choosing the best solution to build it. Moreover, they can adjust the way they code to the situation.Modular structure gives you much room to act. That is why you will have no problem making a unique product.
Node.js allows developers to customise the project’s structure so that your application can meet the needs of stakeholders and the technical requirements. Decentralized architecture solves the most significant challenge that customisation brings: software stability. Since you are modifying just a single module, it is much easier to control its interactions with other elements of your app’s environment and the code behind it.
Just remember that customisation is a bit more challenging
