Modern JavaScript Explained For Dinosaurs
Peter Jang

So this whole journey is predicated on this:

And this is how we used to make websites with JavaScript libraries! The good thing was that it was easy enough to understand. The bad thing was that it was annoying to find and download new versions of libraries every time they would update.

I’ll stick with the good thing, thank you! Why do I want to download and install a new verison of something that works? All it can do is (maybe) break it. Besides which, the work required to install and work with all these package managers etc is far greater than the “dinosaur” approach.

I really don’t see the advantage. Besides which 99% of the JS frameworks and packages are bloatware for a lot of cases.. I’ve seen pages laoding jQuery just so they can change a div’s style….

Like what you read? Give Phil Uribe a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
