I’ve been carrying around some open source guilt for awhile. And it’s all because I have multiple open issues and Pull Requests to put my tiny jQuery plugins on NPM.
I want to be open minded but I have a tough time understanding how this situation was created and where these two worlds meet. A big modern NPM + Webpack workflow but still using tiny jQuery plugins? Is this a Grunt/Gulp hangover?
querySelectorAll replaces 90% of jQuery for me. I even rewrote a vanilla FitVids for my own site.
The urgency to support yet another thing isn’t there. Is this what abandonware feels like?
There’s probably some security concerns.. I mean, if you
npm install fittext, that package bundles FitText and Bram Stein’s Hypher + German extension. That’s fairly innocuous bloat, but what if.
Ugh. What do you do, y’know.
