The Problem With Node Modules (Medium Post)

I Peeked Into My Node_Modules Directory And You Won’t Believe What Happened Next is a great post on Medium about a deep dive into Node and dependencies.

I started my investigation by installing the “babel-preset-es2015” package. This package allows twenty-something web developers to write a newer, worse version of JavaScript that no one else on their team knows.

The above quote is just about one of the modules detailed, but needless to say it turns out it’s a big, ugly, hairy, mess.
