Aside from showing statistics of packages, it can also compare authors. Check out these examples:
- enzyme vs react-testing-library,
- the migration from babel-core to @babel/core
- or the total downloads of my packages
Cloudflare Workers are a new technology simliar to AWS lambda which allow running code on demand. As they use V8 isolates instead of node, they start faster than other cloud functions. They are also deployed around the world automatically, so response times are low. I use them to fetch the download statistics.
The project ended up more challening than I thought at first. It was a ton of fun nonetheless and I’m very excited to see where Cloudflare Workers are headed.
