space (optional): A String or Number object that's used to insert white space into the output JSON string for readability purposes.

Question: Give example of JSON.stringify()?
JSON.stringify({});                    // '{}'
JSON.stringify(true);                  // 'true'
JSON.stringify('foo');                 // '"foo"'
JSON.stringify([1, 'false', false]);   // '[1,"false",false]'
JSON.stringify([NaN, null, Infinity]); // '[null,null,null]'
JSON.stringify({ x: 5 });              // '{"x":5}'

Question: What is JSON.parse()?
JSON.parse() method converts JSON string to JavaScript object.

Question: What is arrow function?
An arrow function expression has a shorter syntax than a regarular function and does not have its own this, arguments, super, or

Question: Give example of arrow function?
var materials = [
console.log( => material.length));// expected output: Array [8, 6, 9]

Question: What is Handlebars view engine in nodejs?
Handlebars.js is templating engine in NodeJS. We give the data from node and same used in the handlebar template.

Question: How to configure handlebar?
const hbs = require('hbs');
app.set('view engine', 'hbs');

Now you can place the html files in view folder with extension of .hbs

Question: How to pass the data to handlebar engine and used in view file?
Pass parameter
app.get('/aboutus', (req, res) => {
  res.render('home.hbs', {
    pageTitle: 'About Page Title',
    welcomeMessage: 'Welcome'

aboutus.hbs (Use with variable name enclosed with double curly braces)
{{pageTitle}} //About Page Title
{{welcomeMessage}} //Welcome

Question: How to create element(partial) file in handlerbar ?
In node server file, set the following
hbs.registerPartials(__dirname + '/views/partials');

You can call a comman file from another file with following system
{{> header}}

Here header file path is /views/partials/header.hbs

Question: What is an error-first callback?
Error-first callbacks are used to pass errors and data. You have to pass the error as the first parameter, and it has to be checked to see if something went wrong.
fs.readFile(filePath, function(err, data) {  
  if (err) {
    // handle the error, the return is important here
    // so execution stops here
    return console.log(err)
  // use the data object

Question: What are Promises?
The Promise object represents the event completion or failure of an asynchronous operation, and its resulting value.
function readFile(filename, enc){
  return new Promise(function (resolve, reject){
    fs.readFile(filename, enc, function (err, res){
      if (err) reject(err);
      else resolve(res);

Question: What's a stub? Name a use case?
Stubs are functions that simulate the behaviors of components/modules.
Stubs provide canned answers to function calls made during test cases.
var fs = require('fs')

var writeFileStub = sinon.stub(fs, 'writeFile', function (path, data, cb) {  
  return cb(null)


Question: What is callback hell in Node.js?
Callback hell is the result of heavily nested callbacks that make the code not only unreadable but also difficult to maintain.

Question: What is the role of REPL in Node.js?
Full form of REPL is REPL Read Eval print Loop.
The REPL in Node.js is used to execute ad-hoc Javascript statements.

Question: Name the types of API functions in Node.js?
Blocking functions In a blocking operation, all other code is blocked from executing until an I/O event that is being waited on occurs. Blocking functions execute synchronously.

Non-Blocking functions
In a non-blocking operation, multiple I/O calls can be performed without the execution of the program being halted.

Question: Explain chaining in Node.js?
Chaining is a mechanism whereby the output of one stream is connected to another stream creating a chain of multiple stream operations.

Question: How to get the node version?
node -v

Question: How to access the GET parameters after ? in Express?

Express JS Interview Questions and Answer for experienced

Express JS Interview Questions and Answer for experienced

Question: What is meaning of app.get(*) in express js?
app.get(*) means that for any GET request not already handled yet, will come in this route.
Note: this must be at the end of all route handling (Last route).

See example below:
//Login route
app.get('/login', function(req,res){ /*Login code */ });

//Register route
app.get('/register', function(req,res){/*Register code */});

//Route which is not handled yet
app.get('*', function(req, res, next) {
  var err = new Error();
  err.status = 404;

As we know, last route is for not found route, So in this we have set the status 404.
and pass the error object to the next.
When we call next() without parameter, then it run next middleware.
When we call next() with parameter, then it run differently.

Question: What is use of next() in express JS?
next is an argument provided by Express.js as a way to "pass along" control to the next middleware (or route).

Question: What is Middleware?
Middleware are functions that have access to the request object (req), the response object (res), and the next middleware function in the application's request-response cycle.
The next middleware function is commonly denoted by a variable named next.

Question: What are benefits of Middleware?
  1. Execute any code.
  2. Make changes to the request and the response objects.
  3. End the request-response cycle.
  4. Call the next middleware function in the stack.

Question: What are different Middleware?
  1. Application-level middleware
    app.use(function (req, res, next) {
  2. Router-level middleware
  3. Error-handling middleware
  4. Built-in middleware
  5. Third-party middleware

Question: How to setup log4js?
Install log4js
npm install log4js

Include log4js
//include the log4js file
var log4js = require('log4js');

Configure log4js
//Configure the log4js
  appenders: { 
      display: { type: 'stdout' },
      file: { type: 'file', filename: './data/chat_logs.log' }
  categories: { 
      display: { appenders: ['display'], level: 'debug' },      
      file: { appenders: ['file'], level: 'debug' },
      default: { appenders: ['display'], level: 'debug' }

Display log4js in console
var Logger = log4js.getLogger('display'); 

Logger.trace('this is message1');'this is message2');
Logger.warn('this is message3');
Logger.error('this is message4');
Logger.debug('this is message5');
All the data will display in console

Question: How to store the logs in file?
var Logger = log4js.getLogger('file'); 

Logger.trace('this is message1');'this is message2');
Logger.warn('this is message3');

Question: What is a promise?
A promise is an abstraction for asynchronous programming.
It's an object that proxies for the return value thrown by a function that has to do some asynchronous processing.

Question: How does promise work?
The Promise constructor takes a function (an executor) that will be executed immediately and passes in two functions: resolve , which must be called when the Promise is resolved (passing a result), and reject , when it is rejected (passing an error)

Question: Give example of promise work in mongoose?
User.update({id: 100}, {$inc: { views: 1 }}).limit(1).exec();
Here execute multiple function in one line is promise.

Question: How to setup mongoose with promise?
var mongoose = require('mongoose');
mongoose.Promise = require('bluebird');
var db = mongoose.connection;
db.on('error', console.error.bind(console, 'connection error:'));
db.once('open', function() {
    console.log("MongoDB connected Successfully.!");

Question: How to Add the data in mongoDb with mongoose?
//Ajax chat messages
var AjaxChatMessageSchema = mongoose.Schema({
    id: Number,
    userID: Number,
    userName: String,
    userRole: String,
    channel: String,
    dateTime: String,
    ip: String,
    text: String,
    status: String,
    vid: Number
}, {collection: 'ajax_chat_messages'});
var AjaxChatMessage = mongoose.model('ajax_chat_messages', AjaxChatMessageSchema);

var saveData={id:11, userName:'testuser',text:'hello user'}
var AjaxChatMessageDtls = new AjaxChatMessage(saveData); {
    if (err) {
        console.log("Error while saving the details");
        response.success = 0;
    } else {
        response.success = 1;        

Question: How to do decrement the value by 1?
AjaxChatMessage.update({id: 100}, {$inc: { views: -1 }}).limit(1).exec();
