History

The project was started by Mozilla engineer Kevin Dangoor in January 2009 and initially named ServerJS.What Server Side JavaScript needs - Blue Sky On Mars{{cquote|What I’m describing here is not a technical problem. It’s a matter of people getting together and making a decision to step forward and start building up something bigger and cooler together.|15px || Kevin Dangoor}}In August 2009, the project was renamed CommonJS to show the broader applicability of the APIs.CommonJS: JavaScript Standard Library Specifications are created and approved in an open process. A specification is only considered final after it has been finished by multiple implementations.ProposalProcess - CommonJS Spec Wiki CommonJS is not affiliated with the Ecma International group TC39 working on ECMAScript, but some members of TC39 participate in the project.CommonJS: the First Year - Blue Sky On MarsIn May 2013, Isaac Z. Schlueter, the author of npm, the package manager for Node.js, said CommonJS is being made obsolete by Node.js, and is avoided by the core Node.js developers.WEB, Schlueter, Isaac Z., Forget CommonJS.
