Oh that would be sweet! I haven't really cultivated a big audience yet, but if it was larger that would be cool

I'm a light user, so nothing that I can think of! I've been meaning to look into "bots" to allow viewers to run some commands. That's all I can think of!

I looking for a logo designer & some general brand work. If you're into that (or know somebody), hit me up! DMs open.

The latest victim was react-native-storage-sqlite. I'd have to look to see which others I've forked, but luckily sometimes I did end up finding a better library (forked node-sqlite3 but eventually found better-sqlite3)

I'd love to see these numbers in terms of bandwidth. I mean, with that kind of rate of change are you all going to hit some kind of upper limit at some point?

Agreed. Houdini/etc feels like a push in that direction

I say this as I'm forking several projects & ripping a ton of junk out that I don't need & is only making it impossible to integrate the way I want. Don't assume anything at first. Just give me the dangerous, straight-forward API, esp if you're something like react-native-sqlite

I will forever advocate for dangerous, low-level APIs first and then safe high-level APIs second. If you don't provide the former you're seriously limiting your capability

No worries! Was curious myself. npm 4 had quite different behavior fwiw and did copy files and installed it normally.

It has to look it up via node_modules somehow. I just tried it and npm 5.6 (latest) does create a symlink

That makes it hard to do local development though. That’s the advantage of lerna/yarn workspaces: they just create symlinks so you can change code and instantly see it

Noticed your fork of react-native-workers here, is this something you are using on prod?

It’s nice for cross-platform code to be separate anyway, and included without big amount of “..” imports

Does that create a symlink?

Put that code in a separate module and require it as a dependency (maybe lerna/yarn to help)

I recorded in slow motion everything that happens when I type a single letter in a autocomplete. All of this happens during a few hundred milliseconds. We see from 3 to 10 intermediate states, depending on how generously you count. This is why I still don’t use FF.
