No, I'm not talking about npm v7! 🙀
Just 3 cool devs with Kat Matchán included!
And what do we know about Kat? Well, they were working for npm some time ago, and were a member of the team who released the major improvements to npm v6 after the Yarn 🧶 release. So, Kat knows about caching and how to improve the package system.
Yarn was a rough competitor in that time, 🥵 many of us switched to yarn and now we're back into npm.
Kat works for Microsoft's NuGet nowadays.
Rust 🦀 is a powerful language: thread-safe and memory safe without using a garbage collector. We can expect better speed than that of a statically typed language with a performance similar to C++.
A benchmark here:
Orogene removes the necessity for the
node_modules folder using a similar approach to
You can use this in wrapper shell too:

It seems the JSON format is too strict for some people. It's a bit scary to think about leaving the
package.json behind to embrace a new format for defining dependencies in Orogene. Even-though this hasn't been confirmed, the team is considering it.
We can expect the standard commands in Orogene, like create:

$ rm -rf node_modules
$ oro start00:07 AM - 09 Aug 2020
rm -rf won't be needed when
oro as a known package manager.

Kat wants to build a collaborative and healthy community around this project where each member can express their ideas in a safe and free environment.
There is no company behind this, just FOSS enthusiasts working in their free time. Kat said we can expect a beta coming for March 2021. We can see this project growing in public in their repository and help with ideas and feature requests.
Any open source project is welcome and we've the best wishes for this team! And if this comes alive, npm, yarn and other package managers could find improvement opportunities.
