In this post we will learn to read a text file synchronously with a blocking code and asynchronously by writing non-blocking code. Node.js provides methods to read a file both synchronously and asynchronously in it's 'fs' module. Synchronously reading a file using blocking methods of Node.js: Asynchronously reading a file using non-blocking methods of Node.js: … [Read more...] about Read File Synchronously and Asynchronously (Blocking and Non-blocking ways)
Here we write a simple web server program in Node.js that serves static text to the client's HTTP requests.
