Node.js vs. C++ library

This documentation is for the LEGACY version of Blynk platform which is no longer supported and will be shut down.

You can sign up for the current version of Blynk platform here.

The new mobile apps can be downloaded from App Store and Google Play.

The actual Blynk documentation is here.

Use Blynk with Node.js

Node.js is easy to write scripts, update, and prototype. It also supports secure SSL connection out-of-the-box.

Node.js has lots of modules for Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Desktop Ubuntu etc - which makes integration very easy.

Node.js has timers, asynchronous operations, etc - this is important when you start building more complex applications.

Use Blynk with C++

If you want just to toggle a pin, it will simply work out-of-the-box. But if you want to add more functionality, it will require some Linux, threading, sockets knowledge, modifying Makefile, etc. So, C++ is generally for advanced developers.
