Zig is a significant improvement over C++

...To be honest...

Even C is a significant improvement over C++

Phew! An update of my past 2 days: 964 changed files with 23,240 additions and 24,273 deletions (~6600 individual cases in ~1220 tests)...

Almost all tests are now using and its test runner which executes everything in 23 seconds now vs. the previous 10-15 mins on GitHub CI. Only a small 25-35x(!) speed up... 🤯🤩

This is also great (if small fry for now) for saving energy! Right now, the main build step for all 184 packages is still using Yarn & Typescript and still taking ~23 mins on the Github CI (vs. ~4 mins on my MBA M1). This is because for each package Yarn also launches a new TS instance, which has huge overhead... Once this issue[1] with Bun will be fixed, I'm sure I can get this time _drastically_ down too!

“I’d been frustrated for years of just how slow everything in JavaScript is. Why does it take so long to install dependencies? Why is it so hard to just run a JSX file, or a TypeScript file?”

@jarredsumner on why he created #bunjs

JavaScript with Bun is actually nice. Great performance (built with Zig), gradual typing, Go-like all-in-one tooling (no npm, no bundler). No compile times. Code hot-reloading.

If JS had checked exceptions, that would make it very convincing as a suitable Go replacement for my work.

I'd love to connect with any folks out there using #BunJS - my team is very interested in the promised functionality but initial experiments hit some road blocks - anyone successfully migrated a #Node app to #Bun and has stories to tell? #Typescript

🔥 New episode of JS Party!

Fresh off Bun’s big 1.0 launch, Jarred Sumner goes one-on-one with @jerod to discuss the all-in-one JavaScript runtime that’s captured the interest of many.

We get into it all: what problem he’s solving, how it’s so fast, why no Windows support, answering the critics, the (not real) beef between Bun and Node, how the VC-backed startup will sustain & more.

I've been moving all our #Jest tests to #NodeJS’s test runner as some sort of a wind-down task before I sign off for a few days. Learned about it while playing around with #BunJS. Finally got to the last test today and was able to remove Jest entirely from our dependency tree. It shaved off ~7% of our lock file:

🚢 New episode of JS Party!

Amal, KBall & @boneskull convene to discuss the recent (deserved) hype over Bun and what it all means for the @nodejs community, maintainers & users.

They’re joined by @mcollina & @jasnell who are here to dispel Bun antagonism rumors, discuss the pros/cons of each runtime, explain how Node continues to thrive & even announce a VERY big upcoming feature!

#bunjs seems to be taking off 👀 Their 1.0 marketing video made quite the splash! I guess I'll try it on a toy project soon, I'm still a bit skeptical.

This is actually a pretty awesome (but lengthy) post about Bun and why you probably shouldn't jump on the train already.

Bun hype. How we learned nothing from Yarn

I guess I will give #bun a try... these numbers aren't that bad, considering that in my test, the server handles 100 parallel requests for ~10 minutes and converts a big XML to JSON....
#ebay wants a response within 3000ms... when handing thousands of incoming notifications, this is getting tough.... this needs more testing 🤓 🔍 🕵️

This is ridiculous. How the fuck is #BunJS so fast? What sorcery is this?

If #BunJS really is that fast, it should make #JavaScript development on low-end #Celeron/#Pentium machines much more bearable, correct?

I just did a bunch of reading on #zig (it’s what #bunjs is written in, and I love bun) and now I’m wondering whether I should spend time learning #zig or #rust (which is more mature, and has similar goals but more emphasis on safety).

I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts. It seems like in a nutshell, zig is an rethinking of C and rust is a rethinking of C++ but maybe I’m wrong on that too. Both seem better than go.

@heiseonline Habe selbst schon bun getestet. Kommt einem teilweise so vor als wäre es "zu schön um wahr zu sein", aber irgendwie funktioniert es einfach 😅
