Eyyy, so to introduce myself.

I'm a minimalist and I like keeping simple things simple.

Been doing web dev for over ten years and I try to avoid dependencies whenever possible. Vanilla CSS with some JavaScript that's lean is better than any framework.

Code itself is technical debt. Less code is less debt.

Hobbies include laying on my couch thinking I should be more productive, writing long winded essays, staring at my always growing pile of books, and trying to find fellow humans online.



I like your ideals. My current favorite CSS and JS trick lately, is to go to those OS libraries and pull just the tiny little bit that I want and screw the rest of the dependency. Copy and paste for the win, and I don't need to worry about versions or XSS.

@souldessin absolutely best play! I've mentally been imagining that trick as getting the seeds to plant in a codebase to grow naturally. Grabbing an entire library is like buying a manufactured greenhouse to grow tulips.
