    When you start to have multiple stateful components (the database, the HTTP server, your Redis connection, a page cache, etc.), then you'll want to use a library like component that manages their (inter-)dependencies and provides a consistent notion of lifecycle.

    I agree with the main sentiment from the article. Although I do think they are discussing Inversion of control more-so than dependency injection.

    One of my first languages was .net and I was never able to really understand DI in that context that well.

    Actually using javascript and ducktyping made me understand what it actually was.

    I remember a .net job interview where I had to write a micro-service and opted to construct the dependency graph in the main function initialising "all" the classes there. Instead of discussing the pro's and con's of that approach they berated me for not using a DI framework (No I did not land that job, but in hindsight it was the most expensive job interview I've ever had. The room was filled with 8 developers going over my code).

    The main thing the article glosses over is state. something people with a functional background hide from. But if you look at something like the httpclient in .net. I think it took the .net world like 10 years to start using the httpclient properly. Scope and lifetime of those kind of objects are important. managing connection pools, retry state, throttling or the incoming http request. DI does make that kind of thing easieR (I'm not saying it makes it better)

    Look at clojure's component(, I'm not a clojure expert by far. But it is kinda DI/IOC in a functional language.

    In closing we can agree that it is underused in the right places and overused in the wrong ones.

    Yeah like I mentioned I'm not like super sold on the everything-should-be-an-actor paradigm, but I find value in DDD + a light implementation of Components (similar to stuartsierra/component).

    I’m thinking a SQL console mostly qualifies per the article’s idea of a repl. The break loop concept isn’t perfect there though.

    I’ve always liked the python repl, breaking out a django repl and being able to manipulate the db via the api always felt like a super power to me when coupled with the expressiveness of basic python but last year i started dabbling with Clojure. My first “real” repl driven development experience.

    2 things stood out for me:

    1. You end up with some genuinely useful executable documentation and it just makes sense to me to preserve some of what i did in the repl while developing. I saw this first here:

    2. Integration with your editor is essential - having a keystroke to send a form to the repl or evaluate in-line is a real productivity boost. It’s like writing code while an intelligent debugger is permanently live. You don’t need to wait for a compiler run then parse the feedback, it’s just instant in-line runtime feedback. “Paredit” is really sweet. I used calva in vs code for this and tbh it’s as attractive as the language in some ways. I have no idea how to meaningfully apply those concepts to something like python or javascript though. They just don’t lend themselves to that kind of structural editing.
