The Napa.js runtime is in development to bring C++-like performance to Node.js
By introducing multithreading to Node.js, the Napa.js runtime can more easily handle computation-intensive tasks, Microsoft said.
npm install napajs.
Napa.js also has:
- A Node.js-compatible module architecture with support for NPM.
- An API for pluggable logging, metric, and memory allocation.
Microsoft’s Napa.js plans include:
- Performance improvement through support of a pluggable memory allocator and minimization of garbage collection impact on execution latency.
- Node compatibility.
- Installation, including complete support for embedded scenarios.
- Debugging tool support.
