You could be a hobby programmer or a professional and in a struggle with JavaScript taking much space in your RAM? Taking advantage of low.js you can make use of Node.js and lesser system requirements. Keep reading to know how a low.js helps the programmers.

Node.js, created by Ryan Dahl in 2009 has been revolutionizing the capacities of JavaScript. Now, there is another way that you can use Node.js with impressively low space requirements.

How it helps?

Using low.js: enables you to create JavaScript with very less system requirements. It depends on the embeddable JavaScript engine DukTape, whose main focus is port and a lesser memory footprint.

At times, JavaScript might also use little more space for memory than needed or anticipates. Anyway, Low.js makes use of lesser than 2 MB of space in disk and about 1.5 MB in RAM.

Both the professionals and hobbyist find the low cost as a better solution mainly if you have to use it as a factor in the unit cost production, keeping them as affordable key material.

Getting Node.js and IoT together

Why these low requirements are essential? It’s not that the computers are working on such less RAM. Only if there are yet plenty of cases wherein low.js works well like the IoT devices.

And with much lesser requirements, IoT devices don’t require any expensive modules. They help in running Node.js scripts in a smaller, and a gadget at reasonable price. Low system requirements help the devices to utilize low power and store limited resources to perform work other the JavaScript code.

With this, you can develop new devices with IoT capabilities without limitation of any RAM or system memory. Due to this, JavaScript can be integrated on more and more IoT devices. All advantages of Node.js comes with.

Due to its various advantages, many mobile app development company in Lithuania are integrating it in their various products.

The low.js websites offer more thoughts on its capacities in a professional ecosystem:

Low.js in ESP32 gives another benefit of the faster development of software and its maintenance. The entire stack of software IoT products like websites, servers and microcontrollers can be made based on the same software. You don’t need any expert software developers for software for microcontroller.

Based on your needs, there are available two low.js versions. The community of app developers in Lithuania works on systems based on POSIX  like uClinux, Linux or Mac OS X. This takes mild simple programming concept to make it run.

The ESP32 version which is used for the ESP32 microcontroller is purchasable. This version can be used just as it is, but others are similar to the free and open source editions.

So what project are you working?
