re: Tooling - the orphan child of web development? VIEW POST


Mmm... No, I'm not convinced.

If I wanted to use an IDE for web development, I could. But instead, I got away from using an IDE because they felt slow and bloated. VS Code feels great to me in that regard.

If you still miss some of those features in VS Code, it's probably because you need a new mindset for web development. As you pointed out, knowing how many subclasses exist is pretty "meh" for JavaScript - you shouldn't even mention that. And the following just confirms what I'm saying:

I am amazed how web devs build large application these days, equipped with what is in comparison nothing more than makeshift hammers consisting of sticks tied to stones.

Or maybe you just see them as such, because you can't see their value?
