... A community is writing the spec...

.... But.... What of Node? What are they planing to do to her?

Developers are cry babies!

I don't mind the spaghetti mountain... Don't think I won't progress my learning... I'm just saying that if that what I have to do to make it do what I need for it to do... Than I'll do it.

And I look into node promise and the spec promise on MDN... And I'm still not seeing the big picture. Could you give me a brief in your own words....

And this stupid ()=>{} arrow function... After seeing this I got the ideal of letting functions follow the same rules as for, if, while... That if it's one line of code, than let it be: 
function add(arg0) console.log(arg++);

With out a body --curly braces--... Funny thing is that Firefox allow this syntax style.

var arr = [];

Copy & paste in Firefox to see.

And the generator function... Couldn't it have been: generator(args){
yield args += "gen"; 

Plus with a constructor:
new Generator();
Just saying.... What's happening to Node?
