IMHO Rich Harris (of the Rollup and Svelte fame) is a rock star. I think I'd rant less of more people would follow his methods.
Keep in mind I've been hired as a tester, hence the rants. Were this my own app I'd burn it to the ground and rewrite it.4
After a couple of weeks working in the Cypress.js testing framework, seems to me the Jest is to Cypress as the "natural style" of giving birth is to having an epidural. During my last birth the lady next door sounded like her fingers were being cut off 1 by 1 by ISIS...Needless to say, I upped my pain med clicker.
@dfox you need an option for no shoes in the avatar builder. Probably underwear only for some of the gents.17
I hate hate hate React! Sorry but to me it's just such a bloated pos of a framework. I realize it was pretty revolutionary at first, the idea of having everything "reactive" and all of that - but newer things like Svelte.js are a dream to work with, whereas trudging through the poorly coded React app I'm supposed to be testing for work is making me want to pull my hair out! I installed a vscode tool so everybody could see what the import "cost" is on everything - a simple INPUT is 50KB of pure BLOAT for something that should and can be way simpler.
I realize there are probably better coded apps out there that wouldn't drive me so crazy, but anybody importing hundreds of KB of 3rd party crap just to get a select box, some inputs, and a date picker are really out of their mind.11
