nodejs killer feature is an event loop,non-blocking IO, async calls, etc. good for reactive systems. useless for CMS. node is just a wrong tool for one, I guess

Is it wrong to expect a shopping app from event driven nodejs?

Check the below website,

This is a fast ecommerce website, built using expressjs. And, so far, it was made from scratch using custom solutions.

It's just that people did not make any good open source cms that can be said, "Oh, you don't like Magento? Well, you are free to try X which is based on nodejs".

So, it's not the wrong tool but the community needs more solutions made for consumers _^ .
