How one developer just broke Node, Babel and thousands of projects in 11 lines of JavaScript


Re: This whole debacle mirrors Gamergate

Yeah, it's not 2005 anymore. No production webapp is built that way. If yours is, you've got some shitty Web devs on your hands. You need to give them a week to learn what a gulp plugin is, or they're fired.

Yes, that's right, we primitive javascript "kids" have discovered these miraculous things called build tools! Anyone would think it was a real language or something. Dipshit.

Did you not even bother to read this comment thread before adding to it? This has already been pointed out. Left-pad was not being "live linked", but pulled in as a static dependency at build-time. This did not "break the Web", it broke nightly builds.

Get down off your high horse before you get a nose bleed.
