I am thankful to the whole team behind the Homebrew for making it accessible and appreciate their hard work on making things work in such a short time.

    Every language that I’ve ever worked in has a linter written for it. JavaScript has ESLint; Python has Black, and Ruby has RuboCop. These linters do the simple job of making sure your code follows the prescribed set of style rules. A few linters like RuboCop also enforce good practices such as atomic functions and better variable names. Such hints are very often helpful in detecting and fixing bugs before they cause issues in production.
