    @rutee07 yeah my father forced me to do “java for kids” when I was 11 and I hated it.
    So much typing just to klick a ugly gray button. And nobody to show it too because it was a desktop app. If he forced me to do HTML and JavaScript I would have liked it much more as you get instant gratification with webstuff and you can send it to your friends.

    @arte921 it's like a game with a good start and an ending that haven't been thought about.
    too many quirks that even doge (meme) got disgusted by it.

    Stop telling shit here!

    @Afrographics It's the only language where I have to look at the documentation every time I call a function because types are extremely important and at the same time only emergent properties of the code itself.

    @Afrographics Most third party stuff doesn't have jsdoc annotations. Besides, intellisense doesn't pick up docstrings for imported objects.

    @Lor-inc as for me.

    No problem with my completion plugins. So far

    My advice: don't be an elitist like OP

    Like seriously the underlying engine implementation could be any so code needs too much scaffolding to be generalized for every browser and they gave us TS so we don't complain about type safety so that I can no longer rant about it.
