Node.js task runner

Recently, I’ve added a task runner to Node.js. This means that instead of running npm run test on your project, you can now run “node —run test”. This change has the goal of reducing the amount of CPU cycles we pay for just running a simple script. Prior to native task runner, it was around 200ms. With the C++ rewrite of the task runner, it is now 20ms.
