Why Use Make
10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Jan 2023
We've used Make for more than 10 years in our open source JS projects (e.g. https://github.com/SheetJS/sheetjs/blob/github/Makefile ). In 2012 it was a controversial decision given the proliferation of JS task runners and build tooling like Jake and Cake and Grunt and Gulp.
Many of the proposed alternatives "came and went". Others have seen massive breaking changes that force users to roll back to unsupported versions of NodeJS or other software (not too dissimilar to maintaining a Windows XP machine to run old versions of software). But the Makefiles from 2013 still work in 2023.
The World Cup of Microsoft Excel
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Dec 2022
The hardest unsolved problem is document compatibility. It's not enough to have a cool tool -- you need to be able to interchange data with existing users of Excel and other workflows. This was an important piece during Excel's journey to overtake Lotus 1-2-3.
We (https://sheetjs.com/) have been looking into document compatibility for 10 years (celebrating our 10 year birthday this week!), and our eponymous open source project https://github.com/sheetjs/sheetjs is used by companies large and small. It's not a particularly glamorous subject and doesn't tend to electrify people in the same way as build tools or frameworks.
There are ways to improve upon the space, but the problem is that the world has changed. Excel was designed to be the "center of the universe", a creative substrate that bypassed org security policies and enabled extremely flexible line of business tools. Excel was designed to be used by one user at a time, with fundamental inconsistencies blocked at the UI level (for example, try entering a bad custom number format). This made sense 20 years ago, but it doesn't make as much sense now.
The current crop of SaaS companies effectively monetize access to the data. They aren't incentivized to make it easy to export metadata back to Excel -- they want to keep you using the software. This runs at odds with the data portability and freedom that is needed for a successful replacement.
Whatever will replace Excel won't be a facsimile of the current tooling (what Google and Apple are trying to do), nor will it be a siloed experience (what the myriad of SaaS apps are trying to do).
Spidergram is a collection of tools my company Autogram has built or enabled over the past several years to support our work to automate content inventories for large websites: it's part web crawler, part domain model, and part mad science. We released the first public beta today.

SheetJS for quickly generating complex reports in the familiar "workbook full of spreadsheets" style.

Top-500 NPM package maintainers now require 2FA
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 31 May 2022
Hi, random developer that somehow ended up in the top 500 but didn't have 2FA turned on (https://www.npmjs.com/package/xlsx)! npm inc invalidated all of our authentication tokens in mid April and we have been unable to sign in via the web interface since then. Assumably the same fate befalls other random devs.3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 31 May 2022
The real reason seems to be:
>Due to ongoing legal matters between SheetJS LLC and npm, Inc. (which will not be discussed here), it did not make sense to continue using the public npm registry for distribution.
