"Until now, native module (add-ons) maintainers have had to recompile for each Node.js release as well as potentially updating their code to cope with the rapid pace of changes in the v8 APIs. The community API working group has been developing the N-API (Node-API) as a follow on to Nan to help solve this problem and insulate modules from changes in the v8 APIs.

By targeting the new API, modules will be able support a wide variety of Node.js releases without needing recompilation or abstraction layers such as Nan - reducing deployment time and maintenance effort for both module developers and Node.js end users.

With an initial version of the API slated to be part of Node version 8 as an experimental feature, it is a good time to come learn about the shape and usage of the new API from those working to implement it."
