A very popular logger for Node based applications. I have used it quite a lot for Node+Express based projects to build REST APIs with nice logging mechanisms. Morgan is an absolute delight to work with for such projects, however, with the recent advent of GraphQL, Morgan nowadays seems to be lagging behind a bit. Some enhancements in log formatting for GraphQL would be awesome in the future.
One of the most mature open-source CLI for a front-end framework out there. The amount of flexibility that the CLI provides users in terms of availability of framework choices for not just different versions of Vue but also other frameworks for testing, styling, etc. is just amazing. Having come from a background of having been a developer on the likes of frameworks like Backbone, Angular and React, the Vue CLI simply feels like a breath of fresh air where you can simply focus on implementing what you want to implement without having to spend an enormous amount of time configuring and bootstrapping the base framework. If you are a web developer looking to start a new project, I would highly recommend using Vue along with the Vue CLI.
LDAPjs is a great option for folks who want to implement LDAP based authentication and authorization systems within their Node js applications. Overall it's a great package, however, it's functioning is highly dependent on network bandwidth and request response times. In case of high latency networks I have encountered issues wherein the connection is terminated if a heavy payload takes time to return its response.
The easiest and lightest node module for loading environment variables into the running process. Highly useful when toggling between multiple environments and deploying cross platform applications. The documentation is great and the amount of configuration options that are available is a great plus for developers sing dotenv.
History is a nice little module that makes session history management easy for web applications. I have been using it in developing stateful SPAs with history related use cases for sometime now and have been happy with it for the most part. The only thing that is a bit bothersome for this module is the lack of quality documentation. That is one area that could use some more love and care from the maintainers of the module.
labelmake is one of the more interesting libraries that I have recently tried out. I tried it out to generating PDF files containing barcodes for products in an e-commerce website. From my personal experience I would say that it's a nice little module for generating PDFs however, the documentation is seemed a bit lacking to me. Also, there are quite a few nice alternatives available out there which might be worth checking out.
Lit is simply lit! :D A very simple and lightweight frontend library that makes it easy to develop component based modular front-end UIs. Also the documentation is great. In fact, lit is so awesome that my team has nowadays started rewriting a lot of SPAs that were previously implemented in Angular or React in Lit because of the performance and long-term maintenance improvements that it offers for simple single page applications.
This is perhaps the single most useful package aimed more towards SPAship developers, maintainers and contributors. The common package bundles in a consolidated set of useful methods that can be extended and reused throughout all SPAship packages, be it the cli, the manager, sync service or recently the orchestrator. The documentation however is a bit lacking and could use some more love and attention.
