I'm all for lots of little packages. Most of these packages exist to save time and avoid edge cases.
However there are definitely times when this gets out of hand, like pulling in Mustache.js for the sake of a few one line templates that will be part of the client bundle in a web app.
In my experience, one of the big bloat issues is the large number of projects that include the test files, source files, documentation, etc instead of just the compiled distribution.
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.
