    > why not drop your fork now that colorette has changed the API back?

    Author continued to act impulsively. He rolled back API in patch release instead of major made breaking changes.

    Am I missing something here? Are https://github.com/jorgebucaran/colorette/blob/main/index.js and https://github.com/ai/nanocolors/blob/main/index.js the essentially what people are fighting over? It looks like a bunch of constants and about the same amount of code you'd find in a Stack Overflow answer.

    There's something weird about an ecosystem that turns this code into something worth fighting over.

    Am I right that this is the important part of the library?

    I agree that the author clearly spent a lot of time polishing it, hence the pride and feeling of betrayal.

    What is even going on here? https://github.com/jorgebucaran/colorette/issues/78. They're arguing about who should have attribution for adding a single "!s &&" to improve performance? What happened with the world where open-source was about creating cool projects together, not about who has the most stars on GitHub?

    To be honest, this is the general feeling I get from the JavaScript community: Instead of working together to improve existing projects it's all about launching new alternative packages and get everyone to switch to your new fancy project. This causes a never ending churn where we jump between (incompatible) libraries with very little actual improvements.

    You have a new benchmark results after you backported Nano Colors optimizations and refused to mentioned it
