How JavaScript is becoming more and more prominent

JavaScript is one of the most popular programming languages in the digital sphere and it has been incorporated into every browser. With advances in browser tools, JavaScript has moved into the server with NodeJS, which is now capable of so much more than it was just a few years ago. Here’s a quick glimpse of what one can do with JavaScript-

Websites

JavaScript has grown much better and keep on evolving with new features rolling out in it. So, a webpage created by HTML is a static one and by inducing JavaScript one can make a web page dynamic. It also allows to create special effects like rollover, graphics, roll out and animations that can entice website visitors to stay and explore more on the website. Mainly JavaScript is used in all the websites for authentication purposes. Further client side, rather user side validation / authentication could be done with JavaScript other than server-side scripting languages.

Web Applications

As the technologies continue to progress enabling to create robust web applications, JavaScript is also working behind to make it more interactive and user-friendly. For example think about the applications like Google Maps how it automatically loads the location and other details the user search for. So what works behind that? The answer is JavaScript. JavaScript also supports various external applications like PDF, running widgets, Flash applications etc.

Presentations

The usage of JavaScript is not limited to programming or building websites but it can be used to create compelling web-based presentations.  Traditionally PowerPoint is used to create presentations but with Reveal JS library it becomes easy to create elegant slides that can run in any browser either online or offline.  To build this web-based deck, one needs to have a little knowledge of basic HTML and CSS. 

Web Servers

The basic functionality of the NodeJS framework is to build server-based applications, which in turn can serve content to users. It’s easy to build web server in about ten lines of code using Node’s Hello World application. There are a range of modules like “HTTP” and “request” module, which helps in processing server related queries in the web server space. 

Mobile Apps

One of the most powerful things JavaScript can do is to build applications for mobile phones. The mobile applications are written in two completely different languages to make it work on Android and iOS devices. But with React Native, the recently launched cross-platform framework, it is going to be ‘write-in-one- solution’ for these two platforms. The most commonly used apps that are using React Native are Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Pinterest and many more.

These are just a few starters mentioned in this blog; the application of JavaScript is vast in all aspects. One can deploy JavaScript in Robots or AI and expand the technological opportunities in this digital domain.
