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.
