Discussion on: How Ternaries Can Improve Your JavaScript Conditionals

I think your absolutely right regarding “Don't chain multiple ternaries together”. In the code base I work on they allow this practice, but I really really dislike it. I think reading code should be as easy as reading a book. Comments are also underrated in my opinion. I honestly think each line of code should be editable later by a junior or senior dev alike. People think they are being smart using multiple ternaries but they are creating a form of fragile code IMO.

Indeed. They think they are being smart, while in fact they are being clever. And clever code is almost always bad code.
