re: Syntactical Overkill in JavaScript VIEW POST


While reading this post I started justifying each design choice in my head... I've turned into the slowly boiling frog! I love all these new language features, but you're right; modern JS feels like regional dialects sometimes. It's absurd, but so is the complexity that web developers manage, so I'm not sure what the answer is.

I've experienced a similar feeling with tooling; I enjoy using Babel, Flowtype, Eslint etc. and am annoyed when I can't use them, but I'm also annoyed when I have to set them up for a new project.
