comment confusion on using nodejs within an actual web application or ide
Regarding your update - in short, you don't invoke node from the command line from your application. You have it already running in its own process (as a server) and have your application communicate with that.

@CaptainCodeman - I'd say that there are some compile errors that would require you to dig through quite a lot of code. This is more true for larger codebases and larger change sets.

comment Why are most functional programming languages also interpreted languages?
@JörgWMittag - fair point. Was just saying that there is no such thing as an interpreted language vs a compiled one, given than many languages have both.

comment Do dependency injection frameworks pose a dependency risk?
The "don't use a DI framework" pattern. Though I must wonder if you are you solving a problem you don't really have - how likely are you to change the DI framework?

comment Why are most functional programming languages also interpreted languages?
You are confusing languages with interpreters/compilers. Many languages have both compilers and interpreters (REPLs) - a language is not defined by the execution environment/engine.
