  • GitHub repo volta

    Volta: JS Toolchains as Code. ⚡

    Project mention: Volta | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-03

    > you will incur into a slightly performance cost because of the bash/zsh/fish shell you need to spawn before running your code

    While Volta does have a shim, it’s written in a sensible systems language (Rust)[0], so it does not spawn a shell. It only determines the correct process and arguments to run and launches it as a subprocess. There will be overhead to read from disk and determine which version of node/npm to run and a syscall to actually launch the subprocess, but that should be very minimal and nowhere near the cost of initializing a shell.

    The result is that Volta feels faster than similar tools that are written in scripting/shell languages. It also enables better Windows support since there’s no reliance on a system having a POSIX shell.
