Honestly Medium wasn't ever a great place for this. The sheer trouble I had getting code snippets to work nicely with gists (yes there are tools for this but it shows bad design in the first place) that I used Jekyll for a while.
I think a push from larger groups like Freecodecamp, Hackernoon etc. also helped, and many people published tutorials that spurred it's growth. The interface also felt fresh and clean which is why people liked it.
Medium started out better and slowly went that path, and Dev.to seems like a good community today, but what if it too goes the same path?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
