The Deno 1.11 release adds new web APIs, resolves long standing issues, and improves editor experience.
Another awesome release from the Deno team! I really love the emphasis on web compatibility. It's great to hear that they're working on getting displayed on MDN. That'll be really useful and maybe even raise awareness of Deno.
How to make a shell script behave like a library
This makes me think about the die-hards who are against the Web as an application platform. They always say the Web was intended as a document platform and therefore shouldn't be used for applications. But Fielding modeled the REST architecture on the Web, and he and others working on the initial tech considered it to be a large, distributed application. So by that line of thinking, the Web as an application platform is nothing new. These separate web apps are just sub-features of the World Wide Web application.
In this blogpost I argue the case for consigning the term "REST API" to history. In its place we should adopt the terms "HTTP API" and "hypermedia API", which better differentiate two distinctive design conventions for the programmatic interfaces of web services.
Fielding's thesis was a kind of retrospective on the design decisions that led to the World Wide Web — a distributed hypermedia-driven information retrieval system — becoming the runaway success it was.
I've read about Fielding's REST dissertation (never actually read the dissertation itself), but this is an interesting way to think about it. I've tried to explain the ideas behind REST to colleagues before, but I don't think I've ever been successful. Describing it with the Web as an example of the architecture makes it much more tangible.
