Deno 1.28 Released (Now with 1.3 Million New Modules..?) — Yes, we know Deno isn’t Node (it is an anagram of it, though 😏) but given its shared provenance and now that Deno now officially supports using npm modules in a ‘stable’ way, this is newsworthy. If you are heavily attached to the npm ecosystem, experimenting with Deno is easier than ever (plus there’s no node_modules, package.json or npm install involved either..)

Wireit: Upgrades Your npm Scripts to Make Them Smarter and More Efficient — Google seems keen to make Node tooling better (see zx) and so it goes with this mechanism for extending npm/pnpm/yarn to make existing scripts more efficient and support things like parallelism, cascades, result caching (essentially memoization for npm run!) and more.


Node v19.1.0 (Current) Released — Node’s new built-in node:test module now supports mocking during testing via a top-level mock object (example in post). fs.watch also gets recursive watching support on Linux. There’s no more ‘experimental feature’ warning for the Fetch API either 🎉
