Today I had to install npm.... Thoughts & prayers, please.

This is awful. So much more terrible than I had imagined....


Like, I fully expected *developing* Node stuff would be garbage, but you can't even *use* npm code that's more than six months old because the whole house of cards collapses into itself and catches on fire in the sewer below. Every naysayer you have ever heard decrying the state of the Node ecosystem was being excessively kind by a factor of, like, a million.

Why do any people put up with this? Even for an afternoon?

@n8 it all seemed like a good idea at the time

@n8 what package manager are you used to / think is good?
