    Node.js JavaScript runtime :sparkles::turtle::rocket::sparkles:

    If you want to build a command line tool or a server, then Node is what you need.

  • deno

    A modern runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    Would recommend Deno to you. Does the same thing as NodeJS and is actually developed by the same creator of NodeJS.

  • 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.
