Every client has technical requirements, and HTML vs. Node JS has been one that has been a subject matter for a long time. In 2018, yes, this frontend language debate becomes more and more heated as we quickly go through the small differences.
So should you use Node.js or HTML? Well the answer is a little bit of both, use HTML for markup and Node.js for top of the line products. If you are just calling content and have both a time and budget concern, PHP and HTML seems to be a framework that simply works and is dependable. Advancing to dynamic applications means Node.js with HTML and Mongo DB (or other SQLs) seems to be the way of the future. Node.jsis a great package repository and the bottom line will win if you're looking for modern features.
Our advice is to leave this Node.js to complex problems. Node.js does provide abstractions so that a lot of the code already under the covers. That's a great thing if you're just starting, but if you’re an expert and need simple level functions, it won't be your first choice. Our advice is to also understand that the product will evolve and there are many other frameworks out there too, such as Wordpress, Ruby or going entirely Native.
