Salesforce lightning web components have such bullshit limitations that they claim is because of security but it's just because it's overengineered garbage.

Want to use web components? Nope.

Want to pass in a value to a function in a click listener expression? Nope.

Want to use scss? Nope, compile it to css yourself.

Want to use the fucking document object? Guess what it's overridden except for very specific third party frameworks.

Who in the fuck thought it was a good idea to override the document object? Your app isn't more secure, literally the entire internet uses the document object and it still becomes available in runtime anyway so what the fuck??

LWC is the biggest garbage I've ever seen, you know a framework's a big red flag when there are developers solely for the framework.

There is a new security release coming out that apparently removes some of these nuances (understatement) so there might be some light at the end of the tunnel.

    It's Salesforce. There's never any light at the end of the tunnel. Unless the light is more proprietary frameworks and meaningless certifications.

    Yeah... It is a terrible framework. The only way you are going to see the light at the end of the tunnel is to turn around and walk back. 😜

    @AlmondSauce the light at the end of the Salesforce tunnel is arson.

    Can confirm, SF has the most ridiculous processes I ever seen all in the name or Security and quality assurance. But all it leads to is devs getting annoyed and just trying to ship the fucking thing out in a deadline no matter how it looks and feels by the end.
