software development is an emotional roller coaster.

the joy when you find a new useful tool or library.

the despair when you find out you need npm to get it.

Scuttebut and the DAT project require npm 😞

How do people end up using that mess to develop such ambitious projects ?

People only consider conveniece, nothing more

I don't now where to start 😥

@catonano @dthompson at least it's a great motivation to read the papers and try to create clean implementations in different languages - rust and guile for example 😋 - in great strong copyleft licenses 😎

@dthompson eh, it's not that bad

someone who installed ruby only for bropages

@dthompson ... that described my today's mood on #nodejs firsts steps...

#trap ?
