Npm package for opencv is old

Hello, I noticed that the opencv github repo at GitHub - opencv/opencv: Open Source Computer Vision Library appears to still be moderately active; however, the latest npm package at opencv - npm is 4 years old. Are these different code bases? Where should I get the latest npm package for opencv?


that package is not under control of OpenCV core developers.

the maintainer of that package, Peter Braden, appears to have abandoned everything he ever uploaded, years ago.

never ever trust anything you find on any package indices on the internet. any random bad actor can upload something under a “brand name”. there is no quality control at all.

there is an official version of a subset of OpenCV for javascript that was made with emscripten.

I am unaware of any actual bindings that call the compiled code from javascript.
