I wrote a piece for DailyJS last week, they just posted it today. It’s called Code Pollution. I have always loved finding new libs, it’s just fun to find a new plugable app that solves some problem you were having. Over time I learned that all projects have warts, and nothing is magic, or plugable. There is still a place in this world for good libs, but most of the time they are written in a fury, and then left to die. I wrote code pollution because I wanted to make an argument for why it’s okay to use someone else’s code. I wanted to help someone get though the hard part and synthesize better code through re-use.
