It is also comparable to Java's JBang, but I don't see JBang as getting very popular.
Of course, you can also use Python for this as well.
Surprisingly, Golang or Kotlin is just not yet ready for scripting with heavy external dependencies.
Node.js might not be good enough for scripting, because
/node_modulesare required. You cannot simply use global filesystem's.
eslint, and probably also
typescript, are often recommendly installed. You don't need these in Deno.
In short, I will kill other scripting languages.
It probably cannot kill Node.js
It cannot replace Node mainly because it can only replace frontend libraries just as fast as other non-Node.js frontend libs. (Such as Golang's esbuild, and the associated Hugo.)
Node.js is just too popular. And Deno is not yet ready for front-end compilers.

The cons of Deno is not available for Termux. I usually coding in smartphone than desktop
have you tried building it yourself
This should work
Thanks. I'll try this
You can use PNPM
The problem is not size, but ease of use. Why do I always need
/package.json? Why cannot be exactly single file?
As well as, this is still required.
It's not bug. It's feature 😂
