Node.js v16.17.0 'Gallium' (LTS) is now supported on MacinCloud Managed Server Plans. Build scalable network applications using a MacinCloud Mac Server with NPM pre-installed by obtaining a Managed Server Plan to quickly get started!


Node.js is an asynchronous event-driven JavaScript runtime and designed to build scalable network applications. Node.js is influenced by and similar design to systems like Ruby's Event Machine and Python's Twisted. However, it has taken the event model a step further and presents an event loop as a runtime construct instead of a library.
