The bloat is everywhere. Nobody seems to know and even to care how shit underneath actually works. That and hype driven development plus agile on top are going to create maintenance issues left and right.
BTW, the "devrant" tag is only for stuff related to this platform itself. "Developer rants" are just "rant" because there's no non-devs ranting here.
@Fast-Nop It puts in the devrant tag on its own. Bug maybe.
Ah I see, it's a UI issue. The thing is I want to put it as a rant and that's the closest thing.
Are you telling me there's no rant option on devrant? It's on the top, my vision blocks that out as something else. It has the wrong size.
@Fast-Nop It's such a huge button I just filter it out. I don't see it unless I consciously try. It's like a blind spot.
No way is that a proper button. I think I understand though what they were thinking. It's huge so that people with touch screens can just bang their head on it. It's so you can hit it with your forehead.
Also in modern UI design the big thing is nearly always the wrong one. for example, NO AMAZON I DON'T WANT PRIME OR MONTHLY PURCHASES, or NO SOURCE FORGE I DON'T WANT TO DOWNLOAD MALWARE.
C0D4676102yI do like me a bloated rant.
The industry is bloated because nobody writes code anymore, it's all
"oh this library that 1mill+ lines of code has a single function that does what I need right now"
Multiplied by every function the code base needs multiplied by a massive import base. You end up I'm with 99% of the code base being outsourced although some dev is keeping that seat warm in an office being paid not to actually do any work.
@RANTSMCPANTS 🤔what are you using to access devRant?
Mobile App, web, some other client?
Hey I guess this is a devrant rant after all.
I find the three star programmer test works as well today as it did 25 years ago, and applies equally well to framework and infrastructure abstractions.
