Npm Ruin Dev

The Internet's own Jeremy Keith penned a pretty spicy post on CSS-Tricks about writing a website without a build chain. A feeling that's likely to land at home for any agency drone whose had to update a gulp-based site after the v4 transition (it's me 🙋‍♀️).

Baseline rules, aka rules you follow until you reach an exception are powerful. I think starting as close to vanilla CSS, HTML and JavaScript as possible is a good idea. My only hesitation is that no matter where it lives, the complexity of setting up a build chain is waiting for you. And given the choice of swallowing the pain of configuring we pack up front (a generator probably does this for you), or in the middle of a project by hand, most will opt to follow the status quo.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

What is this Place?

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
