crafting (and) JavaScript

Deno 1.0, TypeScript 3.9

TypeScript 3.9 was released. Since I am basically a fan of making code safer and better to understand, that's what I use types for, I see nothing interesting to me in this release. But I also use TypeScript in a much simpler way than the cracks and fans. https://devblogs.microsoft.com/typescript/announcing-typescript-3-9/

The PR for 1.0.0 got merged https://github.com/denoland/deno/pull/5273

Deno is a simple, modern and secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript that uses V8 and is built in Rust.

  • Secure by default. No file, network, or environment access, unless explicitly enabled.
  • Supports TypeScript out of the box.
  • Ships only a single executable file.
  • Has built-in utilities like a dependency inspector (deno info) and a code formatter (deno fmt).
  • Has a set of reviewed (audited) standard modules that are guaranteed to work with Deno: deno.land/std
