Yesterday the aforementioned Pika announced some new things. One of the things that stood out is Pika CDN:
The Pika CDN was built to serve the 60,000+ npm packages written in ES Module (ESM) syntax. This module syntax runs natively in the browser, so you can build for the web without a bundler.
Nice! Do note that versioning is limited:
We even intentionally limit semver matching to a certain major-only format (for all >1.0 packages) to minimize the URL surface and encourage good caching.
