And do not make me start with stacks
Fast-Nop2197050dNPM - an ecosystem where devs even import trivial AND BREAKING shit like leftpad and blindly trust any drunken amateur who has farted some insane piece of code into some godforsaken repo out there.
netherfail041149dWhat lib was it?
But for bigger projects they require to be always uptodate to remain usable.
For example any android library that was not maintained in the last year it will defenetely not compatible with androidX. Thus not usable.
U cant trust a library and use it deeply in the code if it is not maintained.
I am not talking abt small toolkits that u use as libraries becasue ur lazy code it urself lol, i talk abt big libraries.
