Rome – An experimental JavaScript toolchain

I’ve been following Sebastian on Twitter for quite some time and am very excited to see that Rome – which he has been talking about for quite some time – has been released into the open …

The reason that I’m excited about Rome is that it’s an all-in-one thing:

Rome is an experimental JavaScript toolchain. It includes a compiler, linter, formatter, bundler, testing framework and more. It aims to be a comprehensive tool for anything related to the processing of JavaScript source code.

Rome is not a collection of existing tools. All components are custom and use no third-party dependencies.

Rome aims to be a replacement for many existing JavaScript tools. We will, however, offer integrations for components in other tools. For example, using the Rome compiler as a plugin for another bundler.

Note that this is a very early release. For now you’ll have to take a look into the source itselfcheck out this post by Jason Miller to see how it works and how to configure it.
