re: Problem with the string 'false' VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I'm always nervous about words like "false" no matter what the language situation is.

I'll find myself writing things like if string == "Definitely 100% true" so the only true value is that and everything else is false, just on paranoia that I don't understand the truthiness well enough.

 

Specially javascript. Difficult to understand truthy and falsy values 😅

 

Depends on the context. If the setting is requirePasscodeBeforeLaunchingNukes, you might want to use !== "false" instead 😅
