    I’ve been writing a small service in Deno for the past couple months, and I really like it. By far the nicest experience writing Typescript for the backend. Hard to express what a relief it is not having to deal with bundlers and transpiling.

    The stdlib is quite excellent, I would highly recommend being as minimal with npm as you can.

      Thanks for this comment, it’s just been an inspiration - I started writing a small CLI tool yesterday, and didn’t feel like messing with setup and linting and everything, but I haven’t considered Deno. I think I will give it a try.

        Deno is especially interesting for CLI tooling, because it supports compiling your tool into a standalone binary.
