I just wonder why flutter application using node.js?? I make mine only flutter and firestore but so much fcm in flutter docs teach me using node.js! so I want to know what is node.js and why need to nodes in flutter. I think just server is firebase // view and backend is flutter


Question answered by Albert (source).

You need node to communicate to your firebase server, forming an API endpoint you can call in your flutter app. So technically node.js is more of backend environment code.
