This isn't a rant but more on the lines of the thing I'm struggling with.
Most of them do no involve "Full Stack Frameworks" but more make shift solutions that I've built and libraries that were build around them.
Here's the list of posts, if you wish to go through the rants.
A common sequence of events is that companies and everyone wants to build their own frameworks to be able to make apps and this has lead to a bunch of amazing products.
I'm also guilty of this since I've at least had 20 iterations of how I could handle dependency injection in backend apps. Wrote my own router implementations and resource wrapper implementations
All of this is great and good but often I forget that not everything needs to be published out in the open. This habit of mine has lead to a problem where I can't be productive anymore when I'm doing any app's backend.
I start with writing the database schema, I get to the part where I need to write the functionality and then get stuck on building wrappers and abstractions for things that don't need abstractions.
This definitely helps since I build tools for the open source world but it removes any chances of building a web app / SaSS for me. I start writing code for the SaSS and the next moment I have another abstraction over knex to
That's not the only place I fuck up though. I've build engine and module loading systems. This did lead to a library called typeable which generates types for a dynamic object for serializable and native types. Which is nice for any usecases that others might have but the App engine was built for a modification of Taco's backend core and I never completed that PR.
The users of libraries that I build are probably in single digits, but still if they do help them it's nice. Cause they clearly aren't helping me since there's a new idea and way to solve that issue in my head every other day.
I'm not sure, I'm looking for answers myself, one such answer would be to use something like Adonis/Sails and while they'd help there's still things that bother me in both and i'll end up creating helpers libraries again.
