windows-build-tools - :package: Install C++ Build Tools for Windows using npm

  •        38

After installation, npm will automatically execute this module, which downloads and installs Visual C++ Build Tools, provided free of charge by Microsoft. These tools are required to compile popular native modules. If not already installed, it will also install Python 2.7, configuring your machine and npm appropriately. Both installations are conflict-free, meaning that they do not mess with existing installations of Visual Studio, C++ Build Tools, or Python. If you see anything that indicates otherwise, please file a bug.

node-fibers - Fiber/coroutine support for v8 and node.

  •    C++

Fibers, sometimes called coroutines, are a powerful tool which expose an API to jump between multiple call stacks from within a single thread. This can be useful to make code written for a synchronous library play nicely in an asynchronous environment. Note: node-fibers uses node-gyp for building. To manually invoke the build process, you can use node-gyp rebuild. This will put the compiled extension in build/Release/fibers.node. However, when you do require('fibers'), it will expect the module to be in, for example, bin/linux-x64-v8-3.11/fibers.node. You can manually put the module here every time you build, or you can use the included build script. Either npm install or node build -f will do this for you. If you are going to be hacking on node-fibers, it may be worthwhile to first do node-gyp configure and then for subsequent rebuilds you can just do node-gyp build which will be faster than a full npm install or node-gyp rebuild.

node-gyp - Node.js native addon build tool

  •    Python

node-gyp is a cross-platform command-line tool written in Node.js for compiling native addon modules for Node.js. It bundles the gyp project used by the Chromium team and takes away the pain of dealing with the various differences in build platforms. It is the replacement to the node-waf program which is removed for node v0.8. If you have a native addon for node that still has a wscript file, then you should definitely add a binding.gyp file to support the latest versions of node.Multiple target versions of node are supported (i.e. 0.8, ..., 4, 5, 6, etc.), regardless of what version of node is actually installed on your system (node-gyp downloads the necessary development files or headers for the target version).

nbind - :sparkles: Magical headers that make your C++ library accessible from JavaScript :rocket:

  •    C++

nbind is a set of headers that make your C++11 library accessible from JavaScript. With a single #include statement, your C++ compiler generates the necessary bindings without any additional tools. Your library is then usable as a Node.js addon or, if compiled to asm.js with Emscripten, directly in web pages without any plugins. nbind works with the autogypi dependency management tool, which sets up node-gyp to compile your library without needing any configuration (other than listing your source code file names).

style-dictionary - A build system for creating cross-platform styles.

  •    Javascript

Style once, use everywhere. A Style Dictionary is a system that allows you to define styles once, in a way for any platform or language to consume. A single place to create and edit your styles, and a single command exports these rules to all the places you need them - iOS, Android, CSS, JS, HTML, sketch files, style documentation, etc. It is available as a CLI through npm, but can also be used like any normal node module if you want to extend its functionality.
