      Node.js is great. It keeps all the hype-train brainlets away from serious projects.

              Well it is MS. Throwing billions at shiny toys and then completely losing interest in them is what they do best.

                It's too bad the Node.js version that ships with Ubuntu 20.04 is old. Also the Node.js, npm and node-gyp depends on Python 2 instead of Python 3. 😢

                It's too bad that GitHub doesn't officially support GitHub for Desktop on Linux.

                If you don't like NPM there is Yarn, and if you don't like JavaScript there is TypeScript. But yeah, JavaScript sure have it wonks and wrinkles.

                  Competition, competition. GitLab has been offering tightly integrated NPM registry for quite some time.

                    GitHub have been lagging behind Gitlab on CI/CD. Gitlab is also amazing if you're deploying your apps into kubernetes for instance.
