So my IT teacher wrote his own web server framework for NodeJS and he forces us to use it for assignments. Would be fine if:
1. It worked properly.
2. It had any kind of documentation.
3. He knew how it worked.

But no, we have to debug his shit and edit the js files in node_modules to get shit working.

Is he open to suggestions? Not really. If you have a fix, you have to create a gitlab account and send a pr. Even if you tell him what exactly is wrong. He won't do anything about it.

Why use express when we can learn something we'll never use again?

At this point I think we're using it only so that he gets downloads on npm.

Oh ya, he also copies package.json from project to project instead of creating a new one with up to date dependencies.

    smug teacher, obviously because he is uncapable of doing it in the industry... "those who can't do it..."

    Sounds like he is setting you up for the corporate world to me.. get used to having to fix that MVP with no documentation that’s been in production for a decade where the only people who know anything about it are dead or dying

    You have no idea how lucky you are to have an instructor that teaches you through modern stacks. Try c projects, no libraries permitted. Building of all things linked lists.
