  • Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform runtime environment that is built on Google Chrome’s JavaScript Engine.
  • Applications are written in JavaScript and operate seamlessly in the Node.js runtime environment on Mac OS, Windows and Linux.
  • By using Node.js as a runtime environment for the backend of a web application, JavaScript becomes the primary language for the entire web stack for development purpose.
  • Node.js possesses many attractive features, including a library rich in JavaScript modules, as well as an event-driven and asynchronous model that makes Node.js light and efficient, which is optimal for data intensive real-time applications that need to run flawlessly on different devices.

Using ES modules natively in Node.js

Using ES modules natively in @nodejs:  by @rauschma #ReactJS #Javascript

  • Tip: if you don’t switch on any of the unlockables (extra features), you’ll stay 100% compatible with native ES modules on Node.js.
  • The current plan is to make ES modules available by default in Node.js 10 LTS.
  • Node.js has to be able to detect whether a file contains a CJS module or an ES module.
  • You can read about the alternatives in a separate blog post.
  • More information on ES modules in Node.js and browsers:

Starting with version 8.5.0, Node.js supports ES modules natively, behind a command line option. Most of the credit for this new functionality goes to Bradley Farias.

What is the best editor for my needs? – arkulpa – Medium

What is the best editor for my needs?  #php #javascript #emberjs #react #atom #reactjs

  • What is the best editor for my needs?In 2013 we started our company arkulpa, most of the time I spent with coding PHP and some simple JavaScript.
  • All I needed that time…But then I slowly switched from PHP to do more and more JavaScript.
  • But often I wasn’t very happy with the JavaScript performance of PhpStorm so I tried other editors and the editor carousel started.the editor carouselAtom, Visual Studio Code, vim and PhpStormReally important for me is good formatted code, lint support, autocompletion and I want to use the same editor for all languages.All of my needs should be combined with good performance ;)First I tried Atom → then I switched to Visual Studio Code → then I tried to use vim → went back to Atom → switched to PhpStorm → tried to get PHP support running for Visual Studio Code → gave vim another try→ went back to Atom …Currently I am fine with Atom,…I went away from Atom first and second time because of not really working code formatting with JS and JSX.
  • Then two weeks ago I read a pull request from create react app that was the first time I read about prettier.
  • Now I’m using the prettier-atom plugin in combination with ESLint, also disabled all formatting from language-babel and it works really great!The list of plugins I useI use Atom for developing new stuff with React, Node.js and Ember.js and for maintaining older projects with PHP/Symfony.
