What is NestJS?
Who uses NestJS?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose NestJS in their tech stack.
Hello everyone! I'm interested in building a Tinder-like application using NestJS with TypeScript. I'm currently exploring database options that can best support my application's needs. Can you recommend a suitable database and ORM for this type of project?
Thank you in advance for your help!
Our framework of choice for backend at Superface is NestJS. We also use AppSignal for APM and error tracking. While AppSignal provides some basic integration for Node.js, getting the monitoring to work with Nest was a bit tricky. Check out our blog post on Integrating AppSignal APM with NestJS how we made it work.
I'm using AdonisJS and NestJS in two projects! both frameworks are good!
I would choose Next.js / Nuxt.js or SvelteKit as they're implemented to support the backend that manages cookies/sessions/API/reactive components and props.
The good thing about them is that if ever your app grows with a ton of traffic, you can easily migrate your SSR app and use other programming languages such as Golang or Rust to serve the API.
NestJS is only used for the backend side, however, the backend side of this is already offered from these big 3 (Next/Nuxt/SvelteKit), as these 3 major SSR Frameworks were able to connect from RDB / MongoDB / GraphQL / 3rd Party APIs, you name it!
Regarding websocket / service-worker (PWA) / wasm, those big 3 can do it too
TL;DR: NodeJS is so big, don't complicate your life, make a single route to handle the frontend and backend, migrating to performant environment such as Go/Rust can be done over an api call inside those big 3 Next/Nuxt/SvelteKit.
- Extensible - Gives you true flexibility by allowing use of any other libraries thanks to modular architecture.
- Versatile - An adaptable ecosystem that is a fully-fledged backbone for all kinds of server-side applications.
