Hey Simon thanks for reading and thanks for the reply. I never said in the post that developers which don't check dependencies on Github are lazy, I said that developers who choose to install dependencies for even the most trivial things instead of writing a few extra lines of code are lazy. The perfect example for that is the left-pad library. :)

And I feel you, clients nowadays usually want everything for pennies done yesterday, but it is our responsibility to our industry to explain to them that they have 3 options but can only choose 2:

  • Fast
  • Cheap
  • Good Quality
