io.js - what you need to know

io-logo-substack

  • io is a fork of node v0.12 (the next stable version of node.js, currently unreleased)
  • io.js will be totally compatible with node.js
  • the people who created io.js are node core contributors who have different ideas on how to run the project
  • it is not a zero-sum game. many core contributors will help maintain both node.js and io.js
  • io.js is not adversarial to node.js
  • the io.js project uses an open governance model
  • io is the 4th largest moon of jupiter. it also means 'input/output', which is what io.js is good at (asynchronous i/o)
  • 'noders' is to node as 'ionians' is to io
  • you will probably be able to apt-get install iojs and get a node executable
  • the first release of io will be in January
  • the io team is working on an automated build infrastructure to enable a weekly release schedule
  • io core team (technical committee) meetings are on youtube
  • bugs etc fixed in node will be cherry-picked as necessary into io
  • still have questions? I'd suggest talking to both sides. Talk to a node.js core contributor and also talk to an io.js core contributor and draw your own conclusions.

Io.js seems dead (went back to Node.js).

Is anyone still using io.js?

Yes and no. In 2015, io.js was merged back into Node.
