What is NPM

What is NPM, and what is Nodejs? We assume they are the same, but it’s not the case. Let’s dive into the difference.

What is Nodejs

Node or Nodejs is a runtime environment for JavaScript based on Google’s V8 interpreter that executes JavaScript code outside of a web browser. It allows Javascript code to run on servers without a web browser. When we talk about Javascript (or even Typescript), we think of web development, primarily front-end. Before Nodejs, there was no solution to run Javascript outside a web browser.

What is NPM

NPM is the acronym for Node Package Manager. What it does is help to organize the dependencies of a project using Nodejs. It lets you install and update all your dependencies. For example, go to the package.json file of React boilerplate you will see that there is a lot of dependencies for the built environment as well as the dev environment. NPM help developers to manage all those dependencies.
