The Electron Project Usage Survey

By Blog, Electron, Survey

Give your feedback on how you are using the Electron

Recently, Electron built a survey to better understand the broad user base and usage of this project. Electron, an Impact project at the OpenJS Foundation, is an open source framework created for building desktop apps using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, and is based on Node.js and Chromium.

This survey is intended for anyone who builds applications with this technology and will help the team learn more about how folks are using it and what challenges they are facing. The results will help maintainers address these challenges and guide the project’s roadmap. 

“As an open source project, many of the decisions regarding Electron happen within GitHub repositories, however, work done within GitHub repos are only a fraction of our overall user base,” said Antón Molleda. “We are excited to have this survey reach the broad set of Electron users so we can capture requirements, challenges and use this information to create a better Electron for all.”

The survey will close Oct 28th and you can access it here.

Node.js Promise reject use case survey

By Blog, Node.js, Survey

This post was contributed by the Node.js Technical Steering Committee.

The Node.js Project, an impact project of the OpenJS Foundation, handles unhandled rejections by emitting a deprecation warning to stderr. The warning shows the stack where the rejection happened, and states that in future Node.js versions unhandled rejections will result in Node.js exiting with non-zero status code. We intend to remove the deprecation warning, replacing it with a stable behavior which might be different from the one described on the deprecation warning. We’re running a survey to better understand how Node.js users are using Promises and how they are dealing with unhandled rejections today, so we can make an informed decision on how to move forward.

To learn more about what unhandled rejections are and potential issues with it, check out the original post.  Those interested in helping the TSC solve this are encouraged to participate in the survey, which will close on August 24th.
