So we can't use NPM modules.

But, on the bright side, we can't use NPM modules.


Actually quite interested in Deno after reading your intro. Thanks!

They are actually working on it!

Deno is not compatible, in general, with Node (NPM) packages. There is a nascent compatibility layer being built at but it is far from complete.
Although Deno has taken a hardline approach to simplifying the module system, ultimately Deno and Node are pretty similar systems with similar goals. Over time, we expect Deno to be able to run more and more Node programs out-of-the-box.
