Hi Everyone! What happened in Nodeland this week? Undici v4, more typescript, and many more things

Undici v4 is out! I am so happy we finally shipped the new version. There is a bit of its story in this newsletter: I think you’ll like to announcement blog post.
Introducing Undici@4
Inside the Node core team, not all collaborators are in agreement with the plan to recommend Undici instead of the default http.request() function. Read more and possibly contribute at the following issue.

This edition is full of TypeScript stories. First, let’s start with the interview James and myself had with Rob Palmer. Bloomberg has been migrating the majority of their JavaScript codebase to TypeScript. Here is their story:

In the meanwhile I have been working a bit with TypeScript myself. Read up this thread with my findings:

I'm doing a significant refactoring on a TypeScript codebase that I never touched. Here are my findings.
The library I have been working on is https://github.com/mcollina/openapi-graphql, which is a fork of the https://github.com/IBM/openapi-to-graphql. I changed to make the library used to make HTTP requests pluggable. I’m working on a new module, you’ll see it soon!
Fastify v3.18.0 shipped last week! It features a much-needed feature: the ability to print out all the hooks a given route has registered. We also moved back to the original proxy-addr module after we had to fork due an incompatibility. Read more at:

There is a lot of new content coming out that shows Fastify at its best. Here is this week pick, an article that shows how to create a Telegram bot with Fastify.

I would also like to thank all of those that participated in the Fastify workshop! I hope you gained some valuable insights! All the proceedings will go to charity:
