Express is an excellent Node JS framework for web backend. It’s Fast, unopinionated, and minimalist. See the basic setup of the express server in the following example.

const express = require('express')

const app = express()

// Home Route
app.get('/', (req, res) => {
    res.send('Hello from express...')

// Port
const PORT = 5000 || process.env.PORT

app.listen(PORT, () => console.log(`Server running on port ${PORT}`))
