    I hate the platitude "don't reinvent the wheel".

    Don't be afraid to kick some packages out of your project, and implement their functionality yourself.

    Sure, sometimes you just need to release before a deadline, so you use a generic framework and aggressively fill up your vendor/modules directory. "The wheels might be square, but at least we're moving".

    But all those great tools we use came into existence because someone thought: "Let's see if I can make a better wheel... or maybe I'll try ice skates, or jetpacks".

    If only all developers who solved problems they're unqualified to solve actually understood their solution and didn't just copypasta
