f03n1x71903yI'm actually in this same situation except instead of one big comments-less app it's two lol, the only way I could get through it all was using the person code as an example of what not to do. That and I stayed hell away from it, honestly at this point it's have been better to remake the app from scratch using something like xamarin to cut time down
@f03n1x I proposed to them to change engine since the once we use is actually quite unreliable and buggy, but they are super eager to get the beta out so I'm stuck with this noodle soup.
Every task takes approximately 15 times longer to complete because of the code base.
Also as a junior developer this is quite the hell hole for me, but I can easily say I've learnt a lot from it and I've only been hired for two months so far.
@Letmecode the solo-ness in the project is about to be gone. On Monday next week another programmer is going to join the cause, but I'll take your tip and try not having every conversation be about how messy the code is. The application needs to reach beta and it won't do that if no one works on it 🙄
I was faced with this where i work but went down the rewrite route because it was beyond salvageable.
Same here faced same issue and also went down rewrite route for both Android and iOS, tool me 6 months to reach desired stage but better than spending them read, screw, refactor 😒
ace4810613yLike many before me said, sometimes taking the rewrite route is way more productive than refactoring spaghetti code.
3 months ago, I managed to convince my manager to rewrite our whole system so I can be able to add any given feature in hours, rather than what would take me days with the old codebase.. I also scared him with some security issues.
Next week I'm going to re-build the whole mother fucking database.
