Bastian Allgeier wonderfully articulates what many – (more than likely most!) – of us are probably thinking anyway but unsure whether we should break cover or not.
When you ever had to fix just a few lines of CSS and it took two hours to get an ancient version of Gulp up and running, you know what I’m talking about.
When everything works, it feels like magic. When something breaks, it’s hell.
One more cause… well, just cause.
This dependency hell is also the reason why old projects are almost like sealed capsules. You can hardly let a project lie around for more than a year, because afterwards it’s probably broken.
Thank you Bastian!
