Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. The Node.js package ecosystem, npm, is the largest ecosystem of open source libraries in the world.

Commercial support for Node.js on ARM is provided by NodeSource which announced supported package releases of Node.JS for ARM on March 31, 2017. They write:

We here at NodeSource are big fans of ARM. If ARM chips could talk, I’m sure they would be looking at several of us and saying “Why are you so obsessed with me?” on a regular basis.

The Node.JS build and release cycle includes nightly builds for developers as well as current and long term support (LTS) releases for production use. Refer to the Node.JS release schedule for detailed information about release planning. As an example, an active release in the “Carbon” series is v8.12.0 as of September 10, 2018.
