How will this make you the "best" developer in the world? :)

Why does it have 300+ emotions? I mean does it add any value to the reader besides being another Top-X List?

It's a marketing trick. Most people believe if there are emojis, they will get more reads. I believe it they focus on the value instead the effect will be much more significant.

I think those are good libraries!
They might not make you the best one, but can make you a better one :)

They're probably hoping for you to make use of whatever info accumulated in those repo. 🤷🏽‍♀️

My question exactly. I think it is clickbait.

Fetch is nice.
But Axios is not meant only for requests. It's an entire framework for HTTP.
It has things like interceptors and transformers.

You would need to build your own with fetch.

Yes, I know. Connection abort etc. is not handled natively by fetch.
I should have updated this comment with the one I did under the axios post.

fetch() can in fact be cancelled by using a signal from an AbortController object.

Hmm, so, no, this will not make you the best developer of course, not even better at coding. But they are all decent projects.

I'm a fecth() guy. Axios was cool when fetch() wasn't around. Now even Node has it.

Cheesy moment, in that I assumed you were a time traveler:

As I am still new to this site, and assumed what I was reading was M:YY. Hot damn, that broke my brain. I've got this post floating somewhere in the abyss and while I don't know if it'd be a great resource for me as it stands, it's good to know what's out there. Thank you!

Awesome collection. The first one on the list grabbed my attention.

Went to their Impress repository. Opened lib folder, then application.js. First thing I see: require(). Immediately closed it.

It is time we let require() go. It is all ESM now.

Our team is using Zod and Day.js daily—a life-saver.

But when it comes to JavaScript & TypeScript. People forget about Angular 😂😂
