Language aside (others covered the topic), it's good to discuss the userland. Npm packages are a chaotic mess, hobbyist programs written by semi professionals or professionals during their weekend free time, often abandoned and unmaintained. When you try to get help or support, people will tell you "it's OSS what did you expect" and you'll spend days and days to solve issues diving into code you didn't writ desperately looking for help in discord, github issue trackers, stack overflow etc.
