Popular Website MilkandCookies.com Runs on Node.js
SEATTLE, Washington—August 16, 2013
MilkandCookies.com is a website of “Awesome videos and memes”, coming up on it’s 13th anniversary on January 3rd, 2014.
Beginning in December of 2012, founder and developer Jaxon Brooks began the process of replacing the existing code. The new application was to be built on Node.js utilizing popular modules available at the NPM repository. Today that vision is realized.
Advantages in using Node.js over other solutions include: flexible modularity, greater performance, and a shared client-server codebase.
The site also uses Responsive Web Design techniques, allowing it to display and operate on smartphones and tablets as easily as desktop computers.
Tools based on the experience of writing MilkandCookies.com in Node.js will be available soon at Oingle.com, including a content sharing platform.
Jaxon Brooks is a full stack web developer, working exclusively in Node.js since discovering it in the Spring of 2012. He owns and operates several websites, including a Node.js focused Twitter feed: @jifasnif.
