Deno

Deno is Node done right. Who's fixing it? Ryan Dahl Node's creator who realized several of his mistakes (all of which I strongly agree with). There is no question in my mind that Deno will be outstrip Node within five years (by 2025) if not sooner. It is clearly the future of JavaScript. As new as it is, it is already incredibly useful.

I love that Deno has taken some of the best ideas from Go as well. Dahl wrote Deno originally in Go before discovering Rust and its lack of garbage collection making for a safer and more pure runtime. This is the sweet-spot for Rust systems development.
