Finally a JS runtime made to perform — running circles around both Deno and Node.js
Ever since I published uWS for Node.js 7 years ago, my main point and what I have been trying to explain has been:
Of course in this day and age, any criticism in whatever form, immediately gets classified as “hate speech” and goes censored/banned. The trigger squad cannot comprehend any such thing as honest feedback for the betterment of a project. Criticism is good — it has a purpose — to make things better. If you aren’t open to criticism you aren’t going to overcome problems and improve. And that’s why Bun sweeps the floor compared with Deno/Node.js.
Instead of bitching about feelings (I would assume?), Jarred Sumner the creator of Bun, took up the challenge to design a foundation that would perform — and it does. That’s how real progress is made — you take negative feedback and you flip it around to your advantage.
This is awesome — to be able to write business logic in simple script, yet have the platform it runs on perform close to native. It’s the best of both worlds. Sure the project is experimental, and will require time and effort to mature, but it already shows some incredible potential.
