  • For the guy with 87 vulnerabilities, I present my horror:
    While I personally haven't used it, just-js actually beats out a bunch of Rust frameworks, including Actix, on TechEmpower.

    Looking at the repository, it seems that just-js is a full on Node replacement, but at a very low level. It's basically a thin wrapper over Linux APIs and doesn't implement many abstractions; you're essentially writing C in JS. V8 is well optimized, so this result is not exactly surprising to me. The speed comes at the cost of maintainability (no zero cost abstractions), ecosystem (no Node.js compatibility) and possibly safety (very low level APIs and no sandboxing).

    just.js (#9) looks interesting


    It seems to be a much tinier JavaScript runtime than Node.js (still using v8), but linux only

    The benchmark is probably unrealistically optimized code but even so, it implies Node.js itself has a large performance overhead

    I was surpised to see javascript framework called, just-js show up at rank 9. In case, people are wondering, it looks like a new V8 runtime environment. https://github.com/just-js/just
