JWT and cookie based auth are different things. It is like a car or a pizza and the tech stack doesn't matter for which1 to choice/use.
The encryption algorithm is the same for all technologies.
Require/import, I am not sure this is a problem at all. May be, when you want to share a global data like constants. Also, there is a window, which on the server is undefined.

Sometimes bad docs and no supported packages - yes.

NodeJS is a different kind of thinking/culture. It is not about the language, only.

Hey, thanks for giving my article a read. I agree with you that Node.js has a different culture and thinking, and it's definitely not just about the language. Node a great option for many developers.
