Deno 1.0.2 Released — It’s time to hit deno upgrade for a bundle of CLI and stdlib fixes. Only one new feature.. you can now generate MD5 hashes using the standard library. Example:

import { Md5 } from "";

let md5 = new Md5();
let hex = md5.update("").toString("hex");

A Deno Plugin for JetBrains' IntelliJ-Based IDEs — It's early days but if you use JetBrains' IDEs such as WebStorm, this plugin adds some initial support for Deno.

▶  A 50 Minute Deno Crash Course — A lot of people are cranking out Deno videos right now, but Brad, the guy behind the popular Traversy Media YouTube channel, has a solid reputation for getting these things right. In just 50 minutes he takes a nice, balanced approach where he’s not just hyping up Deno as a Node replacement and walks through Deno’s plus points, tooling, building an API, etc. If you don’t mind screencasts and want a ‘one stop shop’ on Deno, this is a perfect place to start.

Autopilot: A Cross-Platform Desktop Automation Library — Another example of where using Rust for dependencies opens up some fun options to Deno. The API on offer here is pretty simple.. type with type, move the pointer with moveMouse, screenshot with screenshot, etc.

▶  Learn Node.js Before Deno — A ten-minute look at Deno, some common concerns with the new runtime, and why you’d want to know Node before jumping into Deno anyway.
