FULL DISCUSSION
 
 

Don't hate :D

Like I wrote, I choose this stuff all by myself and use it everyday, it's not that hard, but I also have 10 years experience. Maybe doing things a bit more junior dev friendly could reduce the entry to such codebases.

 

That happened to me! I started to work with modern JS ≈ a year ago and the first few months i hated furiously all the syntactic sugar that was added (even when i love to tinker with weird toy langs).

Those months passed and now i can't imagine to not use Promises, arrow funcs and a lot of the things that where borrowed from the FP world. I think that syntactic sugar is really helpful when you can understand it, but at first glance is just magic, and magic code is really hard yo understand (and make relevant tests with that understanding).
