hexc12482yIf only every package could be made without 1000 other depency packages
@tahnik take the array-filter package for example. It's 8.6kB and contains a test-directory, a .npmignore, a .travis.yml, a package.json, a readme and the index.js which is the code. In that index.js file you have 7 lines of documentation and 10 lines of code.
That's the reason people hate npm. Maybe namespaced modules will help, maybe npm-modules should come with only the bare necessities. But for now this is shit.
Anyone who actually likes the npm ecosystem should be forced to code on a ZX81 for a fortnight. Without the RAM pack.
