easy-peasyVegetarian friendly state for React
Used it in my workplace, as a replacement for redux. It was really refreshing to use, less boilerplate, full support for hooks, and easy API. That being said, it doesn't scale well. When project grows beyond a certain point, it becomes cumbersome, and "boilerplatey", not that different from redux. So, to sum up: great state management lib for smaller projects.

ccxtA JavaScript / Python / PHP cryptocurrency trading API with support for more than 100 bitcoin/altcoin exchanges
Used it in a personal project. Despite the huge API, the extensive docs make it very easy to find your way around it. Built in rate limiter, and the fact that it returns the original market API response together with its own, uniform response make it a prime choice, especially if you need to interact with multiple marketplaces at once.

react-query⚛️ Hooks for fetching, caching and updating asynchronous data in React
I recently stumbled on the idea of "separating ui and server state" in react apps. This library was suggested as the "server state" handler. The whole concept takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do, it makes perfect sense. React query provides hooks that hold your server state (anything you fetch over the network), handle updating, caching, and pagination (among other features). It is also very configurable, and it works pretty well with typescript. A definite recommendation for mid to large react apps.

mdx-deck♠️ React MDX-based presentation decks
Wow, I was blown away when I discovered that you don't need PowerPoint or Google slides to build presentations anymore. Especially for people with developer background, this library is a life saver. I was able to build a pretty decent presentation for my talk in a couple of hours, all using code (markdown and react), version controlled and hosted on the web. It supports live code snippets, a separate presenter screen, keyboard shortcuts, and you style it with css!
react-routerDeclarative routing for React
More or less standard router for react apps, and that is covered extensively on the web, but maybe a lesser known feature is its `MemoryRouter` component which allows you to use it in for example desktop apps with node-gui or electron with almost identical component-based API. It can also carry state over the routes, so it makes page switching in those kind of apps really easy.
single-spaThe router for easy microfrontends
We were introduced to the concept of micro frontends a couple of months ago in my team, and single-spa seemed like a good starting point for trying it out. After a bit of setup and getting used to a new type of workflow, it works like a breeze. There's a rich ecosystem around it, and the creator/maintainer is really working hard on issues and fixing edge cases.
dot
dotenvLoads environment variables from .env for nodejs projects.
Ever since I learned about it, this library is a part of my starting template, both in frontend and backend. Makes working with the team way easier, as you can commit something like .env.example file, and have your .env file ignored by git, so there's no danger of accidentally exposing sensitive data by hardcoding it in your project.
mobx-state-treeFull-featured reactive state management without the boilerplate
MST is great if you want to move away from redux, and mobx is too "free form". It allows for a great organisation of your state, and handles async actions really well (no need for thunk middleware). On bigger projects, you can modularise the store so the simplicity is preserved.
date-fns⏳ Modern JavaScript date utility library ⌛️
I use this almost daily, both in frontend (mostly React apps) and backend with node. It features helper functions for almost every date/time manipulation you can think of. Additional pluses for modular imports (only import functions you need) and immutability.
lerna:dragon: A tool for managing JavaScript projects with multiple packages.
Makes using a monorepo way easier. In my experience, it is best suited for a library-type repo, with codependent packages. It handles versioning and change logs extremely well. Personal recommendation is to use it along side yarn workspaces.

commandernode.js command-line interfaces made easy
Easy to Use
Great Documentation
Highly Customizable

Thanks to a great, functional API, it takes away all the manual checking and parsing of arguments and prompts, and allows you to create great interactive CLI apps. It works great with async/await too.

snowpackESM-powered frontend build tool. Instant, lightweight, unbundled development. ✌️
Buggy
Responsive Maintainers

Works really well on all the example projects I've tried, even if it needs a bit of getting used to. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to migrate any of my projects with a large webpack or rollup configuration. Docs are still pretty slim on the edgecases.

single-spa-reacta single-spa plugin for react applications
Easy to Use

A natural extension of single-spa micro frontend framework if you're using react. The workflow is almost the same, except this exports a top level object with it's lifecycles instead of rendering to DOM directly.

Easiest way to add git hooks to your node.js project, especially since v5 config changes (those changes are supported in v6 with an MIT licence, so be sure to get at least v6)
