I HATE FRAMEWORKS!!! Back in the was a pain to reference a bunch of libraries. But the deployment was simple and rarely did web apps need continuous library dependency updates besides bug fixes. Back was simple and it WORKED.

Fast forward 15 years - you have to install crap A, then crap B, then upgrading crap B forces to install module crap C. I don't think I need to elaborate since we all have been there.

So your NPM app has over 100 dependencies and guess what? Moving Node version f*cks up a good portion of the libraries and you end up playing the lotto game - "guess what EXACT version of module A needs to make module B compile".

I agree with you
