I’ve heard it said that “Software is eating the world.” If that is true, than Node.js is eating software.
The following link is to the Node.js Standard Library project that has an emphasis on numerical computation.
I’d be interested in any thoughts from the expert scientific programmers here on what is lacking. I think the statistics portion leaves a lot to be desired, but it is a decent start.
It is interesting that to build native numerical libraries, they still need gfortran.
- 35+ probability distributions, with support for evaluating probability density functions (PDFs), cumulative distribution functions (CDFs), quantiles, moments, and more.
- 200+ general utilities for data transformation, functional programming, and asynchronous control flow.
- A plot API for data visualization and exploratory data analysis.
- REPL environment with integrated help and examples.
Thanks @R_cubed. What they have is my vision what
stdlib should become.
CC @milancurcic, what do you think?
Yes, same here.
