What if JavaScript wins?

Very insightful post from Anil Dash about the impact of network effects on JavaScript and coding culture. Anil writes on his Medium: What this suggests is that JavaScript may be reaching escape velocity as a network, and as an ecosystem of related technologies. To be clear, there’s no winner-takes-all here — domain-specific languages will always have their uniquely valuable areas of focus. But for general-purpose coding? Everything from spreadsheet macros to Internet of Things hardware seems to default to having JavaScript be one of the primary ways to make things programmable.

Making the Node.js REPL more productive

Project-specific REPLs for Node.js I'm a bit surprised this functionality isn't in the box, nonetheless: local-repl saves you from typing out imports every time you open a new Node.js REPL. You specify the modules and objects that you want to automatically import in either package.json or .replrc.js. It also lets you use await in the REPL without wrapping your code in async functions. That sounds quite nice.
