This gist is meant to go along with a twitter thread. You can find that thread here.

I spent some time discussing my experience with Github Copilot. I talked about some of the social implications of this tech. But I also wanted to show examples of how it worked. In some cases, the experience was pretty surprising.

Because the code screenshots on twitter are not very accessible, I've created this gist to capture the code samples. And I've included some of my commentary in code comments.

What's wrong with the npm workflow?
View npm-woes.md

Sara Chipps started this awesome thread about bundler vs. npm. You should check it out cause it's highly entertaining. https://twitter.com/SaraJChipps/status/484727602049859584

But I do want to get more info on the workflow problems people experience with npm. It has always been the simplest thing to me. But I'm also fully aware that perceptions are relative. Most ruby folks are totally fine with bundler even though it gives me constant headaches. But the bundler issues are well documented. This seems to be less true for npm. I want to gather some info about people's experiences. I promise I'll try to refrain from the canned "you're doing it wrong" response.

Also, we've already established that npm is network hungry and could do a better job of maintaining an offline cache. https://twitter.com/ag_dubs/status/484733343108706305 Nobody's arguing that. But I'm less concerned about feature requests here. I'm interested in where npm breaks for you.
