With the growth of packages and tools for JavaScript development came a lot of fragmentation in the community. The JavaScript foundation aims to address that issue to simplify the lives of developers that nowadays have to deal with the complexity of choices of tools and libraries for similar purposes.

That was one the main topics discussed by Manuel Lemos and Arturs Sosins in the episode 72 of the Lately in JavaScript podcast.

They also talked about using the JavaScript Internationalization API in modern browsers, optimization of memory consumption of Chrome and Node.js, Yarn, the Facebook new JavaScript package manager, recognizing text in images with Tesseract.js, using ansync and await in Node.js 7, as well several other interesting new JavaScript libraries.

This article contains a transcript of the summary of the podcast.

Summary of the podcast

Here first we are going to talk about the recently created JavaScript foundation, as well mention that somehow was sponsored or promoted by the Linux Foundation.

Then we have an article about JavaScript Internationalization API that was defined some time ago but I think not all browsers implemented it, so now WebKit has implementng it.

Then we have an article just telling that there's been an effort to optimize the memory consumption of WebKit, I mean a v8 engine, it is probably address complaints about excessive memory usage by Chrome and such.

Then we have an article about a new package manager called yarn by Facebook which kinda competes with NPM, they probably have their reasons.

Then we have information here about Tesseract.js which is a OCR engine which again was an Emscripten port to JavaScript and it works well.

Then we are a article just talking about the implementation of async and await in Node.js 7. Then we have an article about a library called hyperform.js that implents the HTML 5 constraint API.

Then we have a few articles talking Vue 2.0. And then we have and a mention to a library that is able to truncate text within text elements that are limited in size.

And finally we have a mention to a jQuery plugin that  can animate the page titles and icons.
