So frustrating when this happens.

    @010001111 find out nearing the end of the project you cant finish up because the library doesnt support something you need

    One of my favorite package managers is copy-paste.

    We used some package to verify IBAN numbers. Unmaintained for a while. Caused a bunch of compatibility problems with a newer framework version. My PR on that repo to fix it went ignored...

    Well fuck it. Copy paste into a class in the project repo.

    Often, you only really need 20 lines of code from a library that is 1k lines anyway... Plus I can refactor it to fit the style of the project, I can add extra unit tests, extend functionality, document it better so our engineers understand how the code works, etc.
