    @liberaldog could i ask why you downloaded this app if you have more of a stack overflow attitude

    I rly wish jQuery could be modularized more. It has some good features, but it also has sooo much crap I never need.

    also fuck bootstrap for relying on jquery in it's 4.x version.

    As a whole this 'npm/nvm/bower/pip/whatever' fad is a huge problem as far as I'm concerned. It's creating a generation of "devs" that think it's ok to use those tools everywhere, even on production machines. If you think having gcc, make, autotools, development libs installed on live servers you need to re-evaluate some of your life choices.

    @gargltk web devs live in an entirely different world than native devs though. In my opinion it's best to create builds on local/dev then upload to prod, but my manager is a fan of building on production to have git history there. Most of our codebase is php, where it doesnt matter, but fuck me I hate building SPA on production. Bad practice as far as I'm concerned, but he's the boss so eh.

    I remember when jQuery didn't exist and I used Javascript to create animation really slow and heavy, using setTimeout and changing the css to each call lol and websites made with tables. Omg who remembers websites made with tables?

    @yusijs I found it. This had to be my weekly rant too, but I changed it to not be redundant. I remember that I had to use paint to draw 4 rounded angles, then I set them as background in each corner td. Now all this is disappeared

    @nikkicoleer in that case, you'll do yourself a huge favor to get familiar with the Linux environment. VB is fine I guess, but not entirely relevant anymore.

    I remember when ajax was known as remote scripting and required an java applet for server channel, when you had to use an iframe hack to prevent select boxes from shining through your popups in ie6 and when ie6 was the best browser ever (when the closest competition was netscape 4.72). I do not long back, things was not always better before ;)

    @Voxera don't remind me. set an iframe id and use the id to get the content within the iframe. it almost makes me cry
