I still remember the first time I tried to use ReactJS. The hours spent battling a completely foreign command line, inconsistencies in results when using npm versus Yarn, the utterly unhelpful packages. Above all else, the fact that I was doing so on a Windows machine and kept running into a debugging wall where other devs would just write this off as the underlying reason, shrug, and walk away. It turned out that I was installing my yarn packages into the wrong folder, having accidentally set it up during initial install incorrectly (so no, nothing to do with Windows). Although I wouldn't even work that out for a few months, when I found the other folder whilst looking for something else. At the time, we literally wiped everything dev-related from my machine and started from a blank slate 🤦♂️
John gives up. Concludes never to touch Node, npm, or ES6 modules with a barge pole.
I had a similar thought...
