Discussion on: NPM - too much of a good thing?

I think having a variety of similar npm packages is beneficial because of their open source nature. Too often have I come to rely on one only to discover down the road that it was abandoned however long ago and nobody picked up the torch to keep it alive. With there being so many similar packages I can find one similar enough that is actively being maintained, put in a bit of time to adjust things as needed, and then my project is back on track.
