Let’s have an open floor to vent about things we don’t quite get about npm when using it in our daily lives (as well as alternatives like yarn).
Are you not sure why we need lockfiles? Do peerDependency warnings scare you? We don’t judge here. Do note that the purpose is not to bash the tool—I’m doing independent research to identify gaps and opportunities for better education.
Anything goes, but one scenario I’m particularly interested in is application developers trying to create their first reusable libraries, which seems to be a common source of confusion. Whether that’s you or not though, I’m grateful for any and all responses 🙇♂️
