A Gentle Introduction to Prepack, Part 1

Note:

When this guide is more complete, the plan is to move it into Prepack documentation.
For now I put it out as a gist to gather initial feedback.

A Gentle Introduction to Prepack (Part 1)

If you're building JavaScript apps, you might already be familiar with some tools that compile JavaScript code to equivalent JavaScript code:

  • Babel lets you use newer JavaScript language features, and outputs equivalent code that targets older JavaScript engines.

##Fixing npm permissions

You may receive an EACCES error when you try to install a package globally. This indicates that you do not have permission to write to the directories that npm uses to store global packages and commands.

You can fix this problem using one of three options:

Change the permission to npm's default directory. Change npm's default directory to another directory. Install Node with a package manager that takes care of this for you. You should back-up your computer before moving forward.

HTTP Streaming (or Chunked vs Store & Forward)

The standard way of understanding the HTTP protocol is via the request reply pattern. Each HTTP transaction consists of a finitely bounded HTTP request and a finitely bounded HTTP response.

However it's also possible for both parts of an HTTP 1.1 transaction to stream their possibly infinitely bounded data. The advantages is that the sender can send data that is beyond the sender's memory limit, and the receiver can act on

Better local require() paths for Node.js

Problem

When the directory structure of your Node.js application (not library!) has some depth, you end up with a lot of annoying relative paths in your require calls like:

const Article = require('../../../../app/models/article');

Those suck for maintenance and they're ugly.
