- Developers want to be able to work on any code, from front-end to back-end, in the same language, with the same paradigms
- Developers want a performant language that is good at asynchronous coding
- Developers want a suite of available libraries, plugins and addons
- Developers want a good support community
The open-source community around Node also has a thriving suite of modules and libraries that can be managed through the
yarn package managers.
Currently, our standard is to use Node 8, and we will always strive to use the most recent Node LTS (aka "long term support") version. We are about to trial Node 10.
Check out the Node compatability table to see which features are supported by the current version.
