It’s time for makefiles to make a comeback

I think one of the most important things about a build tool was left out of this article: How to install Make (Windows, MacOS, Linux)?

I say this is important because if you are using Node.js and you want to build with webpack, gulp, or any other javascript build system, all you need is the Node run-time and the instructions are npm install && npm run build. But with Make, there is an extra step before you build: install Make.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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