    Performance comparison of WebAssembly, C++ Addon, and native implementations of various algorithms in Node.js.

    WASM has its moments, as you can see in this[1] benchmark it outperforms JS and native addons on certain tasks.

    Since the bottleneck with native addons is usually data copying/marshalling, and we have direct access to WebAssembly memory from the JavaScript side, using WebAssembly on this "shared" memory might become the best approach for computationally heavy tasks. I wrote about it a bit here[2].


  • public-roadmap

    Checkly public roadmap. All planned features, updates and tweaks.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Coral

    A better commenting experience from Vox Media (by coralproject)

    Yup! We do a Typescript/Node.js/GraphQL back-end with React/Relay/Typescript on the front end.

    It's pretty nice having the whole code base share types, syntax, structure, etc.

  • neon

    Rust bindings for writing safe and fast native Node.js modules.

  • proposal-regexp-match-indices

    ECMAScript RegExp Match Indices
