@jorge_rockr amazing article, i learned a lot about nodejs.
Question: I am building a mobile-responsive website, and my stack has Nuxt.js (vue.js framework) for the front end, talking to back-end APIs in Laravel (php framework). Nuxt.js is built on top of node (I think?) and I am using it for server-side-rendering. What are your thoughts on this architecture, versus using something purely in node.js?

Hi! Thanks you so much for reading my article.

Yeah, Nuxt.js and Next.js (React) are built on top of Node.js and it's cool since you can use your Frontend knowledge adding some Backend code.

In fact, using pure Node.js could have a better performance but it could be more complex and hard to maintain.

@jorge_rockr it was a phenomenal article, thank you for writing it.

Thanks for the recommendation. Sounds like I should stick with back-end APIs in Laravel, and use Nuxt for my front end. Hopefully I should see a lot of the user-benefits one can get from using Node with server-side-rendering for SEO.
