I agree, we just can’t stop re inventing the wheel instead of helping each other, however you can’t really compare that number with the current state of web development plus, those were mostly utility and DOM manipulation libraries. We now have transpilers, package managers, bundlers, preprocessors and so on.

With that being said, I’ve seen a lot of collaboration between, for example, Angular and TypeScript. If big companies keep doing this we might get to a point in which every solution will work in a similar way taking advantage of the underlying language’s features instead of re implementing them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
