The churn of frameworks and libraries in NodeJS is getting completely out of hand. I have a few feeds (Reddit, etc) and it is almost exclusively some new Rails-a-like packaging of Express, a new build system meant to replace `make` and shell scripts, or more MV* frameworks (each with varying amounts of ES6 and weird features).
My heart is wandering back to Python more and more. Staid, ugly, boring Python. Synchronous, the global interpreter lock, give it to me. The rate of change is far too slow, but Python can speed up. The Python community can change.
I don’t believe JS can be reasonable at this point. They’re too invested in not caring about sustainability, “the long term”, whatever.
(Totally unrelated, when did WordPress start to act like Tumblr? I mean, they have the same posting category thing now.)
