What is NestJS?
NestJS is an open-source, extensible, versatile, progressive Node.Js framework for creating compelling and demanding backend systems. It`s currently the fastest-growing Node.Js framework in TypeScript.
NestJS is employed for writing scalable, testable, and loosely coupled applications. It brings scalable Node.Js servers to a whole new level. It supports databases like PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL. NestJS is heavily influenced by Angular, React, and Vue and offers dependency injection right out of the box.
Key features of NestJS
Recently, the NestJS framework has been gaining extreme popularity thanks to its incredible features, which includes:
- Easy to use, learn, and master
- Powerful CLI for productivity-boosting and facilitate development with ease
- Detailed and well-maintained documentation
- Active codebase development and maintenance
- It is open-source (MIT license)
- Support for dozens of nest-specific modules that facilitate easy integration with common technologies and concepts such as GraphQL, TypeORM, Mongoose, Logging, Caching, Validation, Web So let`s, etc.
- Easy unit-testing applications
- Created for Monoliths and Microservices
- Highly scalable applications,
- Fastest growing Node.js framework for the past three years with a large community and network.
- Great documentation.
- Easy unit testing.
- Built for giant-scale enterprise applications.
- With NestJS, you’ll build Rest APIs, MVC applications, microservices, GraphQL applications, Web Sockets or CLI`s, and CRON jobs.
- It uses the simplest of Node.js, TypeScript, and bullet-proof architectural patterns.
- The structure of the application in Nest is heavily supported by Angular. (The structure is extremely simple and allows more attention to be paid to the planning of endpoints and their consumers, rather than the appliance structure)
