What I think is *actually* harmful for the JS community is this kind of witch hunt.

Maybe Sean was in a bad mood, or perhaps frustrated that MooTools is back from the dead just to bust the new attempt to extend JavaScript's standard library (again!). You can't judge him for just that.

That whole thread gives me a stomach ache, with all those passive aggresiveness. But they're all reasonable people, so I think they will clarify soon.

That being said, Sean Larkinn is *not* webpack. The former is a person, the latter is a great project that's pushing the web development community forward by setting new, remarkable standards of dev tooling. webpack isn't made by just Sean and will survive Sean's contributions.

Angular 6 is around the corner, what about examining some beers instead?

Thank you Frederic for giving Echo JS a second chance!
And excellent choices for the new moderators. Congrats Fabien, Steffen and Michael: you've been a great help for the community, so your new roles are well deserved. 👍

This article is... very bad, and I say that as both a Node and PHP developer. There are mistakes, inconsistencies and inaccuracies in basically every paragraph. I wanted to reply to all of those but it would take too much time.

There must be a better way these "news" are handled.
Even if they're deleted pretty quick here, they always get to my RSS feed. So annoying 😟

Many of us already know OctoLinker, Stefan. I don't think it needs more publicity here, especially if it's not strictly JS related (which would be off topic).

Hi Jason, in the description it says it has component bindings for Preact, but from a quick glance it's not necessarily bound to Preact, is it?

The only real advantage in using `with` is that it works great with template compilation - i.e., a quite restricted case that could be worked around.

For the rest, we have better tools now. Array/object destructuring, spread operators and such make the code much clearer... and easier to write too.

And the title doesn't match the linked page's one, FFS!
