'icebugs' : what happens when 90% of the functionality of your software is submerged, uncharted, and potentially treacherous #npm
"As few dependencies as is reasonable", should be high on your priorities list.
But what's reasonable? Well, quite. That's in the sector of the Venn labelled 'Art' , not the one labelled 'Science'. Below the mid point, closer to the boundary of 'Craft'.
Dependencies are maybe the hardest part of software development. Building tools to foster a culture where "you shouldn't have to worry about them" has some key problems
- if you buy into this mythology, you're going to see a population explosion of libraries.
- also, you have a cadre of software builders who are comfortable building software icebergs - where the majority of the infrastructure is submerged, obscure and potentially dangerous.
You do have to shave a lot of corners right down to get a square peg to fit into a round hole though
it''s not an equivalent problem to 'making development easier'. It's orthogonal. Maybe it's a more tempting false equivalence if your base tooling has a lot of cracks? Maybe not.

I built the IMDb message boards. I ran the last.fm databases. I rendered the picturebooks at Wonderbly. I survived Makeshift. Good at naming things.
