CommonJS via PINF - Christoph Dorn
CommonJS is a community guided and driven effort by volunteers with diverse backgrounds and interests to converge on a minimal common ground that is sound and scalable. The goal is to make writing portable JS applications that run on servers, browsers, desktop applications, and secure sandboxes not only possible but accessible to developers and development tools without vendor lock-in or steep learning curves.
Rather than blindly copying prior art, everything is up for discussion for the purpose of distilling diverse requirements into concise specifications that can be combined to build the simplest and most complex systems. Much consideration is given to backward and forward compatibility and ensuring that the proposed standards only restrict aspects that must be constrained in the interest of sustaining the entire ecosystem.
