The Usual Suspects

The Javascript eco-system is varied these days and JSR is attempting to be a package registry up for the challenge. I wanted to share my experience of taking the middleware framework I originally wrote for Deno and making it work under Node.js, Bun and Cloudflare Workers.

JSR first impressions

JSR is a new package repository being introduced by the team at Deno that aims to solve many problems in the Javascript eco-system. I was invited to take part in very early access to it and want to share my impressions.
