NodeJS Square SDK package deprecation

NOTICE: Square Connect Node.js SDK deprecated

How drastic will the changes be for the new NodeJS SDK coming later this year? I am about to start building a backend based mostly around Square and was originally going to write it NodeJS, but I see a deprecation message on the Square NodeJS SDK readme on GitHub. Will it be worth creating a NodeJS app with this library now or should I use another SDK like Python’s? Any feedback is welcome! It would be nice to be able to see the beta of the NodeJS SDK if possible.
