Best Practices to Master Node JS for Ecommerce Development:

Best Practices to Master Node JS for Ecommerce Development So, if you think Node JS for ecommerce development is a wise choice then take no time in adopting this future tech for your project. It is indeed a striking tech to give your project some enhanced features with up-to-date UI and user experience to your users.


DON’T WASTE & RESOURCES ON PROTOTYPAL INHERITANCE Prototypal inheritance is faster and more flexible, that is why the urge to implement it in your code is completely understandable. However, on the other side, is the functional inheritance that is simpler and realizes a trap-free system. Though prototypical inheritance is relatively faster, you cannot implement it easily in the actual execution. You need to call both the ancestor constructor and the inherit function up front. Moreover, it is more prone to error, since you cannot pass an object’s method as a callback parameter without explicitly wrapping it in a function. Therefore, prototypal inheritance is meaningfully not as much of motivating when you are binding the methods to their instances. To attain a significantly better performance you can utilize functional inheritance and avoid many methods calling after the initialization phase.

Start your development with npm init:

Start your development with npm init Node Package Manager ( nmp ) is a combination of two aspects: one, it is an online repository of open-source Node.js projects; two, it offers a command-line interface for interacting with the repository and request resources for package installation, version update management, and dependency management. For example, you can install vows testing framework directly from git and handle the eyes dependency automatically without any extra work: git clone cd vows npm install Therefore, it is always a good practice to create a new Node JS project in using npm init. It will create a new package.json , allowing you to add as much metadata to help other collaborators in the project. $ mkdir my-new-project $ cd my-new-project $ npm init

The modular approach is a lifesaver:

The modular approach is a lifesaver When working on a huge project like an ecommerce site, you need to break your code into modules. This will allow you to have a track of your project with as many tables you want to create. The modular approach is best applied with an intention to make debugging and error recovery easy in the later stages of the project. For example, there are several modules in a hospital management database. Many patients involve the in-patient department and many come from the outpatient department. Hence, you can structure your project in four modules. Patient Department In-patient Outpatient.


USE SYNCHRONOUS CODING As explained earlier, Node JS is famous for its asynchronous programming. This is what that makes it faster and stable as compared to its competitors like PHP and .Net . Utilize node js’s non-blocking and asynchronous runtime to process requests fasters without waiting for the previous requests to be processed first. Trust me, if you are not leveraging its event-driven non-blocking I/O, you are not making a full use of Node JS. So, do not re-invent the wheel, use what Node JS has in its chest to offer, as there is no good feature like asynchronous coding in Node JS. Utilize the promise proxy value to call asynchronous processes like resolve or reject. Call then function through the promise code by taking two async functions as parameters. Execute the first function if condition is fulfilled otherwise call the second function reject if not fulfilled.


GENERIC BUT CRUCIAL – TESTING & MONITORING While in development phase, you would be getting many errors and would be handling it on the go. You would also be testing it in the most strained environments over a simulator. However, you cannot always calculate the strains over a simulator until your application is live for the actual users. Trust me; you do not want to deal with thousands of angry customers telling your server went down during a sale campaign. The best way to deal with such a situation is to test your application and prepare a disaster recovery plan in advance. Utilize both manual and automated testing to check your application in its most strained conditions. Moreover, always keep a track on how your application is behaving in those conditions when using Node JS for ecommerce. You can use the Load monitoring tools like Apache JMeter, Artillery and loadtest – npm etc.


EMBRACE STANDARD CODE FORMATTING An ecommerce site is a huge project and requires a whole lot of people to work on on the Node JS for ecommerce. In order to avoid any complications in the development or post-development phase, experts always recommend using a universal code format. One of the best formats used by the coders is organizing a big program into small modules. Doing this makes the code familiar for the new developers who join an existing project in the latter stages. Moreover, it also makes sure that maintenance coders can debug the errors speedily without crashing down the whole project.

Calculate and mitigate the losses due to the worst-case scenario – Application crash:

Calculate and mitigate the losses due to the worst-case scenario – Application crash There are strong chances that even with the best practices and error handling, your application might crash due to uncalculated reasons. In this event, you must always prepare your application for the worst-case scenario. Node JS lets you do that by using process manager and programming the application for crash recovery from any runtime error. It just restarts the application. Probably, it is one of the best benefits of having an asynchronous code structure. Not just for coding mistakes, but your application may also go down when your server crashes. In this event, the process manager can be a boon as it restarts the application as soon as the server is alive again.
