    Discontinued I created this in 2014, the year I learned how to program. All of the downloads are from an old version of https://github.com/micromatch/micromatch. I've done a few other things since: https://github.com/jonschlinkert. (by i-voted-for-trump)

  • Ridiculous as it may be, my guess is that provides a unified way of number checking while avoiding the pitfalls or crazy consequences which could arise from divide-by-zero[1], which I guess might prevent less-experienced folks from tripping up on some of the Javascript gotchas? I'm not really sure. That being said, I have seen those package dependencies in some serious stuff.

    Do I agree? I'm not really sure to be honest. Probably not.

    Minimal and efficient cross-platform file watching library

  • tailwindcss -> chokidar -> braces -> fill-range -> to-regex-range -> is-number

    is-number was first published 9 years ago, when these kind of micro-packages were in vogue. braces was added as a dependency to chokidar over 6 years ago [1]. And if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I don't think the average JS dev today is going out and pulling in these deps.
