A colleague was making a really compelling case today for moving our batch based processes from bat files and cmdlets over to npm packages. The wonderful irony is this possibility has been brought about by the generally warm acceptance of VS Code as light weight JavaScript editor (Is this the strategy tax we hear about?)

Honestly I am somewhat of a luddite in that I still default to cracking open Visual Studio and creating an exe that does my bidding, I have only recently got used to using Powershell to create cmdlets and then only when I intend to share.

I guess I am just getting ready to taking a side and the battle has probably already been fought.
