SlotMap from private fields
View slot-map.js
A map class, implemented with private slots, which has the following properties:
- The presence of a mapping k => v in a SlotMap does not by itself make k or v reachable
- For each mapping k => v in a SlotMap m (whether m is reachable or not), if k is reachable then v is reachable

Symbol Literals

The form @identifierName is a symbol literal. Within any single module or script, two identitical symbol literals refer to the same symbol. Two identical symbol literals in separate modules or scripts refer to different symbols. A symbol literal may appear as a propery name or as a primary expression.

When a symbol literal appears as a primary expression, it is shorthand for this.@identifierName.

When a symbol literal appears as a property name, the corresponding symbol is used as the property key during evaluation.

Node Module Lookup Rules

ES6 Module Loading in Node.js

Guiding Principles

  • The solution must be 100% backward-compatible.
  • In the far future, developers should be able to write Node programs and libraries without knowledge of the CommonJS module system.
  • Module resolution rules should be reasonably compatible with the module resolution rules used by browsers.
  • The ability to import a legacy package is important for adoption.
