Our review

What we like

Set up a .tool-versions file in your repo and the asdf CLI manages all the runtimes scoped to that directory. Handles things like Node.js, Ruby, Elixir runtimes. Allows you to have multiple runtime versions for different projects and manage how they are updated.

What we don't like

There aren’t many official plugins, so you have to rely on community plugins.
