Issue #116

The biggest news of the week is the official announcement of Rome’s beta release.

Rome is a tool created by Sebastian McKenzie (the creator of Babel) to handle common front-end development tasks.

The current tooling eco-system is very fragmented, each task has its own tools, for example:

  • Formatting with Prettier
  • Linting with ESLint
  • Building with Webpack, Parcel or Rollup
  • Testing with Jest, Mocha or Ava…

However Rome aims to provide a unified set of tools to handle JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS, HTML or markdown files, leading to a much simpler developer experience.

Rome may be the success-story of 2020, this is why we have included it in a short timeline we released this week: https://bestofjs.org/timeline.
