re: To Semicolon, Or Not To Semicolon; VIEW POST


Any language becomes terrible when people feel like being smarty pants, like the standard guide thing that is opinionated and non standard. JavaScript has a bunch of things people who actually bother learning the language know, like parseInt having multiple arguments and .map with the function argument with signature (item, index, array) => item, another two issues for pearl-clutching developers. Or the usual "== is inconsistent" jokes which amount to "you're a lazy developer who never bothered to understand that JavaScript is a weakly typed language that will type cast if you're careless".
