Eliminating Code Smell With Grunt
by Gavin Lazar Suntop @gvn
I love clean code. There, I said it. I pride myself on passing strict linting standards and keeping my code easy to read. It's not just a personal proclivity, but a choice I hope benefits other developers.
My general experience with teams has been that code style is something people care about and have strong personal preferences. Typically, at some point people get tired of dealing with inconsistency and a standardization meeting is called. This is, of course, an important discussion to have. The problem that tends to occur is either lack of documentation or lack of enforcement of the agreed upon style. Additionally, new team members or contributors may not have access to a clear set of rules.
