I have decided to build the web application using JavaScript and React on the frontend and Node.js on the backend. Node.js has a smaller learning curve than Python after learning Javascript for the frontend. In addition, my project is more of a web application than a script tool making Python less optimized for my purpose.

That said, I will likely be picking up Python later as scripting and automation is important to other projects I am working on. That will allow me the flexibility to switch between Node.js and Python based on what future projects demand.

node.js vs python is not really the question. The question is which to learn first.
