“Developers are asking Node.js for more interoperability with APIs defined by Web standards,” said Matteo Collina Ph.D., Chief Software Architect, NearForm and Node.js Technical Steering Committee member. “However, those APIs have not been designed with servers in mind and might require some adaptations. The WinterCG group’s goal is to define how those APIs would behave on servers, paving the way for better interoperability between runtimes.”
The Web-interoperable Runtimes Community Group is collaborating with industry leaders such as NearForm and Vercel to guarantee that developers’ voices are heard in the formation of a new community group that will work inside current standards bodies. Developers can use the API Standards to:
– Use the best tool or framework for the job: Developers will be able to utilise community-developed tools and integrations across runtimes, allowing them to use the best tool for the job.
– Write server-side code in a consistent manner: Developers can ship better code by reducing platform-specific subtleties and the requirement to master numerous platforms and focusing on functionality.
– Move applications when technology requirements change: As application requirements evolve and change over time, there is no need for large-scale rewrites or vendor changes.4
