re: Is Commenting Code that necessary? VIEW POST


The rule about commenting is that it's not for you. It's for who you expect to read it. If you expect your team to read it, then it would make sense to only comment confusing pieces of code, like why you would have a 3 level nested for loop (sometimes it's the only way). If however it's intended for someone who doesn't understand the code, like a webpack configuration file for example, then comments on it should be close to documentation.
