Drupal is a popular enterprise grade Content Management System (CMS) that has traditionally been built around the PHP server side programming language. In addition Drupal also adopted jQuery and Backbone JavaScript libraries relatively early. With Drupal 8 finally bringing Drupal up-to-par on heavyweight Object Oriented Programming methodologies, it is now a more worthy contender to systems built with enterprise grade tools written in Java and .NET.

This is called Isomorphic or Universal Javascript. The jury is still out on what title is the best. But Isomorphic JavaScript, introduced way back in 2013 by AirBNB and others holds some advantages.
