As of today the choices for JS focused web dev are to go through Microsoft (npm) or Facebook (yarn), and it makes me want to do neither.

I think it's time for me to learn about Elm, wasm, and whatever other non-big-tech methods seem intriguing.

@nonlinear @freedcreative rust I think has a federated package management solution by default (but I may be wrong)

@zee @nonlinear I was just looking at Rust, thinking I might pick it up. Gets glowing praise, can be used with wasm, seems like a good option.

@freedcreative @nonlinear I'm simultaneously jealous of all the folks who are making the leap into languages like rust, and glad that I've finally began to accept that so little of my "work" is code anymore that I will likely never truly learn the new ecosystems.
