Node.js vs Python: What to Choose for Backend Development

Node.js and Python both are great languages. Choosing which language for back-end development depends on the developer experience and use cases. Node.js is faster than Python, but JavaScript is more complicated to work in the backend. Nevertheless, Node.js has a serious advantage over Python because it allows you to code in JavaScript on both the client and the server side. Let’s go shortly through the main advantages and disadvantages of both compared languages:

Advantages of Python

  • Fast Development and Deployment
  • Simple Syntax
  • Large Ecosystem
  • Large Community

Disadvantages of Python

  • Lower Performance Speed
  • Low Performance Quality in Mobile Versions

Advantages of Node.js

  • Fast Performance
  • Full-Stack Development
  • It’s Great for Microservice Development

Disadvantages of Node.js

  • Node.js is Poor at Processing Large Data Volumes
  • Messy Syntax

Each project has different needs and specifications. In our article, we are neutral about choosing the best language for backend development. We are just trying to show you all the advantages and disadvantages to make a decision on which one is more preferable according to your project goals.
