When npm modules bring in 1500 micro dependencies for a service you could build in 15 minutes, it makes you wonder if you should, in fact, rebuild the wheel.

    @Root Most definitely. And use some different "wood". In fact, burn the other one you were using before.

    If you don't do it yourself without the dependencies, then you are part of the problem. So please do the right thing.

    It's interesting how in the past big all-in frameworks were cool.. And then suddenly it became super uncool, and ppl go for micro- light framework, where you require a bunch of parts you need, and might end up with a bigger code than the full framework... And worse project structure/optimization 🤔
