A (potentially) landmark feature landed in Deno 1.6:
deno compile --unstable https://firstname.lastname@example.org/examples/cat.tswill make you an executable version of the module.
This puts Deno-based TypeScript projects in the same league as Go and Rust by providing a way to distribute software without the pain of dynamically linking multiple files. (This single-binary distribution has made Go a popular choice for projects such as the GitHub CLI and Stripe CLI.)
Node has had a similar capability by way of Vercel’s pkg project, but Deno sets itself apart by supporting the feature as part of the runtime itself.
