The chrome extension uses a V8 engine, and Node.js also uses the same engine. When programmers build chrome extensions do they use node.js and experss.js?
A typo, presumably. This should be:
The Chrome browser uses the V8 engine.
This is correct.
Nope. These are two entirely different contexts. The V8 engine is integrated into a number of independent projects which have nothing to do with each other.
The Chrome browser knows nothing of Node or express. And likewise, your node/express app knows nothing of the Chrome browser.
Does that make sense?
If you are a bit confused as to what Node is, you can check out the first couple of paragraphs of this article:
Thanks for the help.
If someone wants to want to build a chrome extension in Node+Express+MongoDB, would that be possible?
Not really. Those technologies run on a server, not in your browser (as a Chrome extension does).
You could of course make an API using Node, Express & MongoDB, which runs on a server somewhere, then have your Chrome extension fetch data from that.
Got it, Thank you so much.
