Nah - good riddance var. Long live let & const ;)

 

They should have made var behave like let and just add const. Or make everything immutable by default. I dislike the whole 3 variable assignment keywords, I'd welcome the trillions of breaking changes.

 

I understand the feeling, but they probably didn't do it this way to avoid breaking backwards compatibility.
They should do it right from the beginning.

 

Nowdays even const is considered as a mistake πŸ˜…

Constant complaining from the js community. πŸ˜†

Far enough.
That was an unhappy statement, at least I learned a new word. thanks 😬

Not saying you're wrong, just that it's not trivial :)

Ahh 2020 the only year I can make jokes about my vision.

 

Sadly a time machine written in early JavaScript probably wouldn't work very well πŸ₯³ Merry Christmas

 

we should make a movie about it.

 

So like a Marvel movie? Or should I say.. Varvel? I will see myself out.
