To improve on the system, it was decided to use them on its own and develop it further. Node.js was then developed with the newly created modules which included Mark Cavage’s node restify and Trent Mick’s node bunyan. One can enjoy different functions if played with different devices. Node.js is right model which can be used by the users and is a win for them.
