This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

The growth in popularity of Node.js and trends such as Node overload have led to the application of Node.js for developing business applications. We often see problems, such as scalability and maintainability, with large JavaScript-based applications. NestJS is a TypeScript-first framework that makes the development of Node.js applications safer and less error prone. NestJS is opinionated and comes with SOLID principles and an Angular-inspired architecture out of the box. When building Node.js microservices, NestJS is one of the frameworks that our teams commonly use to empower developers to create testable, scalable, loosely coupled and easily maintainable applications.

NestJS is a server-side Node.js framework written in TypeScript. By integrating the rich ecology of the Node.js community, NestJS provides an out-of-the-box application architecture. The mental model to develop NestJS is similar to the server-side version of Angular or the TypeScript version of Spring Boot, so the learning curve for developers is low. NestJS supports protocols such as GraphQL, Websocket and ORM libraries.
