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.
