What’s a good tech stack today? I don’t care.
But I felt the fear of missing out. Just recently I’ve set up a project with Node, Vue and GraphQL. And I hate Node.
npm install seems to have a 50 % chance to succeed on my machine. It’s just causing random issues I don’t even understand. Is that really what the cool kids are still using today?
But I must admit I also love Node. You can start with a single file, install some packages and design your own structure and APIs. It feels very … free. With all the upsides and downsides of freedom. While I wouldn’t start a PHP project without Laravel, I don’t hesitate to start a Node project without a framework.
Anyway, I’d love to look at something completely new. Over the last months I’ve learned Swift UI. It’s cool and all, but I don’t enjoy mobile apps enough to stick with it. I gave React another chance and I can build stuff with it, but I don’t enjoy it.
While thinking about all that I noticed something else: I won’t start a project without a code linter/formatter (or what you call those tools) anymore.
