The year 2024 marks a crucial juncture in the Node.js ecosystem, where developers face different choices when it comes to selecting the right package manager for their projects. npm, Yarn, and pnpm stand out as the frontrunners, as they are the most widely used in the Node.js ecosystem. Each package offers unique features and capabilities tailored to address the challenges of modern development environments.

Two months into 2024, I’ve decided to summarize the achievements in the Node.js space from 2023. As always, this list is curated by me, so I may overlook some pull requests due to the vast amount of work completed by Node.js collaborators and areas where I need more context, such as WASI. Node.js is rapidly evolving, and it can be challenging for regular users to stay updated with the latest changes. Even as someone who works on the project, it’s possible to overlook certain commits.

We just shared big news about the open-sourcing of our Node.js Runtime and the release of our AI Copilot for Node, both requiring a big role from our infrastructure (Infra) team. They are the team behind the scenes, dedicated to delivering top performance, and have been instrumental in maintaining our reputation for fast, stable, and secure delivery of our SaaS product and Binary Distributions–which generate over 100 million annual downloads a year.

In November of 2014, when NodeSource was still a small consulting group, my teammates Dan Shaw, Rod Vagg, and I were having dinner after a customer engagement, discussing how to bring Node.js production deployments to the same level of polish and tooling capability of the other runtimes our customers were already employing.

We are excited to share the release of our new Cost Calculator to showcase just how much the wrong APM provider can add to your cloud hosting costs (try it now). Observability is vital, but it comes with computational overhead that shares the same infrastructure as your application. This is compounded in typical Node.js APM tooling due to the internal workings of Node.js itself.

NodeSource developed a GitHub Action that can be used as a lightweight CI workflow. Whenever a PR is submitted, NodeSource's 'Node Certified Modules' (NCM) uses the NCM pipeline to check and evaluate the project. The PR then fails or passes depending on the project’s risk profile. The integration delivers detailed code annotations to reflect where certain risk factors occurred in your project.

Analysts Jeffrey Hammond, Diego Lo Giudice, and Christopher Condo explain in this Forrester report why digital and software development leaders should take a customer-focused approach to software development to support digital transformation. Organizations often think of modernization in terms of technology choices-and as NodeSource has seen firsthand, Node.js is a key part of the tool set for application modernization. However, this report indicates that most IT organizations don't have the right operational models to develop and deliver great digital experiences.

While startups rarely enjoy the resources of a large organization, they usually enjoy a comparative "easy-mode" when it comes to technology adoption. Once a company has reached a certain size, or has existed for long enough, technical debt builds up, organizational ossification sets in, and bureaucratic creep becomes pervasive. This white paper covers our findings from over the last four years of engaging deeply with our enterprise customers: advising, training, and supporting them with our products and expertise through their Node.js adoption journeys.

You've written the next great application, in Node-and you're ready to unleash it upon the world! Which means you can no longer run it on your laptop, you're going to actually have to put it up on some server somewhere and connect it to the real Internet. There has probably never been a better or easier time to learn basic Linux system administration. This tutorial will take you through the steps to deploy and run your application on a Linux server using systemd, which is the replacement to init and upstart in older Linux systems.
