My experience with automated was that it was too aggressive and many packages don't follow semver correctly, so often broken

Need to stay on Node LTS. Need to update webpack so that we can update webpack-dev-server so that we can update watchpack so that we can get a chokidar update compatible with Node 12. I think you're right. It's definitely painful.

Probably not much different. Also don't have experience in anything else in at least 6 years.

How do you manage keeping dependencies up to date in your node/JS applications?

Half of the errors I've fixed lately have been solved by upgrading various node dependencies. There are far too many implicit dependencies – especially with a 2.0 GiB+ node_modules folder.

I am proud of hitting another major milestone: as of today, I have been sober for 7 years and 3 days. The year mark means nothing. Each individual day means everything.

Mostly, TypeScript is making me angry with all of the various things it needs to configure, difficulty understanding its configs, slowness to adopt ES features, and general slow parse/compile/build times. TS is such a pain though that I gave up. Watch the stream & see me get sad

Finishing up my live stream from yesterday, converting Build Tracker off of tsc and ts-loader for build and ts-jest for testing and moving straight to Babel. I think I've figured things out after sleeping on it. Will go live within a half hour or so.

Struggled with some path issues using Babel and Jest while trying to convert off of tsc and ts-jest for build and test. Will continue tomorrow sometime mid-morning! Maybe a little mental break will help figure out the issue when we get back tomorrow.

Cool. I don't have much experience with Docker, but happy to review PRs for it!
