vintprox104733dUnless when it works just perfectly or if it's easy to extend upon, personally, I would only encourage to rewrite the codebase. After all, they may have written some mess, and despite the fact it worked alright before, it's no use to go with unmaintainable bunch of programs.
PetriJ124233d@vintprox Yeah you’re right, I often think ’If your code cannot be understood or read by others, it’s pretty bad code’. I’m pretty picky with trying to write understandable and clean code (good variable- and function names, indenting correct a.s.o). Since i’m bearly a junior developer I feel kinda like i’m probably not any better then the next person and therefore feel like i’m running over work someone have put their energy and hard work into.
