  • Why I'm donating $150/month (10% of my income) to the musl Libc project | 2021-10-07
    A year and half ago kesor was able to get deno to build without glibc (so it would work on stock alpine). It seems to be gn args/configs that need fiddling.

    Unfortunately this work has never been brought into main (a couple of attempts have been made subsequently).

  • Release v1.14.3 | 2021-10-05
  • Show HN: A Lightweight Alternative to React | 2021-10-04
    This is very much a work in progress, but I've used it to ship an internal application at Netflix already. With today's unfortunate events for React's primary maintainer, I figure it may be a timely moment to get some early feedback from anyone that wants to play with it.

    Full disclosure, the latest zip file is buggy and has a ton of WIP files.

    I haven't published an official bundle, build, or npm package yet as I'm still exploring and finding the rough edges of this approach. If you'd like a bundle to play with locally, follow these instructions:

    1. download

  • What scripting language and what implementation would you use with your program written in Rust? | 2021-10-03
    Deno. Typescript, JS engine written in rust by maker of Node. WASM friendly
  • Boa release v0.13 | 2021-09-30
    I think Deno might be what you want. It's Typescript rather than JavaScript, but other than that it sounds pretty close.
  • What are some programs that are written better in Rust than any other language? (in terms of support / libraries / frameworks) | 2021-09-28
    About your topics: Backend: Rust is a great option for it. You develop faster in node but Rust has some benefits: - Safety - Type safe, explicit optional values, explicit ownership - Performance - It's almost unfair to compare - You should check, it's a node replacement in Rust. I think by the creator of node.
  • Ignore files when publishing packages for Deno | 2021-09-22
    Deno doesn't download anything that isn't imported, so "publishing" isn't like it is on npm where the whole packages is downloaded. The README will be on, but it wont get downloaded because it won't be imported.
  • Rome will be written in Rust | 2021-09-21
    I'd argue the JS engine in browsers is _also_ built for JS developers, and even though we are definitely a minority compared to all the internet users it's important to underline that most of the stuff currently available online, for better or for worse, wouldn't exist without developers writing it. Like the average user in fact couldn't care less about what languages websites are written in, but if browsers shipped only a brainfuck compiler I'm sure there would be a lot less development happening on the web, in some sense JS developers are the target users of JS engines.

    I think this is literally the first time that I hear anybody saying that TypeScript is very fast. It's no coincidence that the top open issue in Deno's repo is literally titled "TypeScript compiler in Rust" [0]. The developer behind swc is even rewriting the whole type checker in TypeScript [1]. A lot of people, myself included, think that TS can get excruciatingly slow, in a large-enough but not really huge codebase, in a way that probably wouldn't happen if it were written in something like Rust with a big focus on performance.


  • Parameterized testing in Deno | 2021-09-20
    Hopefully this can be helpful to someone, at least until more comprehensive testing features are added to the Deno runtime. You can read some of the ongoing discussion around a new test related api here.
  • We really need an ARM build. | 2021-09-17

    > NodeJS compatibility, what is our high-level strategy, goals, next steps?

    > Do we see Node and Deno co-existing, or do we want to think of Node as "legacy"? (Note, there was no clear decision on this question, it was just a conversation)

    > If we could say "you can run your Express server under Deno faster than Node" would that encourage adoption? No clear answer

    I really wish they go for a better compatibility with Node and sell themselves as a replacement that is strictly better. | 2021-09-16
    If you have all code already, just paste into a file and run that file…

    Otherwise you might want to check out piping support Something like `echo "yourcodehere" | deno run -`

  • How to Render React SSR with Deno and Deno Deploy | 2021-09-08
    This article will show you how to replace Node.js with Deno, a new JavaScript and TypeScript runtime by the original creator of Node.js, Ryan Dahl. Deno introduces plenty of new features not available in Node, but the biggest is out-of-the-box support for TypeScript and ES Modules.
  • Should I take a Node.JS job?
    Typescript is growing in popularity to the point where the "supposed" NodeJS replacement (Deno) supports Typescript out of the box. This popularity will stay for a while as the other "javascript-transpiler" languages aren't gaining any tractions.
  • Essential JavaScript Tooling | 2021-09-03
    Setting up Linters can be tedious and tiring but it brings great results once you adopt it and start using it properly in your team. I personally believe that linters and such tools should come with the language itself and developers shouldn't have to worry about setting one up. This experience is much more improved with deno (A secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript) which ships with a built-in linter and formatter for JavaScript and TypeScript.
