Who else uses template strings by default?

    I just use it when I want to write HTML or variables inside.

    I’ve thought about it. If backticks had a dedicated keyboard like, like single quotes, I’d probably do it

    I don't, just because some transpiler or browser compiler may add extra instructions that aren't needed. That won't happen with syntax that conveys the intent deliberately.

    Tempting but that little tick is in no man's land on my keyboard compared to quotes.

    Is that.
    Object oriented JavaScript?!

    I mean, it was always object oriented, just prototypically so.

    Am I the only one that thinks that's cursed? 😂 Seriously though, don't some languages make escaping certain caracters harder (by forcing you to "double escape" or just outright terminate the literal and concatenate a "regular" string) when using backticks?

    EDIT: Also no IE support for JS template literals. Not that I care, just something worth mentioning

    @TjasPRG If someone uses IE and complains, I will ask them to change the browser 🙂
