The wait is finally over! Ryan Dahl made a big announcement which caused everyone to wonder about the future of Node JS. Hundreds of blogs and videos have thousands of opinions and predictions about the upcoming technology.
I have even read comments where people are already planning to revamp their software with the new technology as they believe it covers all the flaws that existed in NodeJS.
To give a little perspective about the DenoJS for readers who do not know much about it, DenoJS is created by Ryan Dahl. Ryan Dahl is also the creator of NodeJS and announced in his talk, “10 Things I Regret About Node.js” about the present issues in NodeJS.
He talked about the changes that he has made in the new technology and that NodeJS has finally covered all those issues.
Although it is too early to comment on the future of both Deno and NodeJS, in this post, I will enlighten you all about the changes made in DenoJS and its benefits.
I will also talk about my opinion and the way things might shape up in the future.
For everyone worried about the developments, it is time to calm down! As stated by Ryan and apparent conclusions, NodeJS will continue to empower software, and you do not have to think about revamping your software anytime soon.
But just like every other technology, change is inevitable, and in the case of DenoJS, change is coming for good.
Without any wait, let’s discuss teh benefits –
1. Security – This is my favourite part of Deno. It comes with inbuilt security features. You won’t have to check most of the files before loading manually.
If in case you try to load a file which is not secure, you will encounter an error sign which will automatically prevent you from any harm. You can define permissions on your own.
2. It uses the ES modules instead of the CommonJS system. We see a pretty significant change there as well.
3. You can directly load URLs just as you would do with a browser.
5. The Deno team has a standard Library. It is maintained internally and continuously evaluated. The team monitors everything, and you won’t have to worry about any 3rd party code. Well let’s all admit, no external dependencies are what we all were looking for!
6. You can easily find the broadest range of web APIs, which makes it extremely compatible with most of the Web browsers.
I am sure that these six reasons are more than enough to convince you to try it yourself. Talking about its future, it is too early to say anything, but in my opinion, I am sure that no significant disruption will surface in another year or so.
Things will get to change when we start hearing companies talk about the challenges they have solved using the technology. This is, therefore, a great time to experiment and learn everything about it!
