Displaying server-side information without reloading page

I know you can use res.render or res.send to send information to the client. However, this always forces the page to reload. Is there any way to have info appear without making a page reload?

You could try WebSockets and/or WebRTC

If you’re planning to do this on Glitch I recommend using AJAX (JavaScript Fetch API) to fetch resources from the server every now and then as websockets will disconnected after a couple of minutes.
