    Discontinued Package your Node.js project into an executable

    You can also compile node scripts (including bundling the NPM packages you're using) into a binary with https://github.com/vercel/pkg ... so you don't even need to have Node installed on the target systems.

    A tool for writing better scripts

    Personally I seldom write bash scripts so when I do usually have to google how to do everything, and I usually have shellcheck in my editor to catch obvious bad practices. I write js much more often so I’ve used Shelljs to avoid such headaches, though it has its own set of conventions to wrap your head around. Zx looks neat too https://github.com/google/zx . If the scripts are going to be maintained by devs without node experience I’d stick with bash.
