So many lulz:

H9RBS.js (v0.0001) is a flexible, dependency-free, lightweight, device-agnostic, modular, baked-in, component framework MVC library shoelacestrap to help you kickstart your responsive CSS-based app architecture backbone kitchensink tweetybirds.

The FAQ is awesome tambien.

Why can't all these nodegem cowboys cooperate a little more on larger, more long-term projects rather than constantly reinventing the wheel and creating tiny github projects that solve 1 problem in an unstable, experimental way so that they can quickly move on to another project and boost their repo count?

James Halliday (node folk hero @substack) brags that he has over 100 github projects . He seems to place little, if any, value on any measure of dev output other than number of github projects (except perhaps the number of github followers). Ruby hipster and Quora growth slacker Robert Cezar Matei also thinks that # of github followers is an excellent proxy for dev skill.

James Halliday sets the record straight on who knows what:

new rule: you must have >=100 github repos/forks before making sweeping claims about the future of open source

James Halliday explains that one does not simply ask questions of a GitHub God:

haha asking people with hundreds of open source modules on github to waste 4-10 hours on bullshit puzzles is completely silly

James Halliday makes cheeky commie joke to discourage de-fragmentation on node project:

If you want to put more modules in node core you are a COMMUNIST and you HATE FREEDOM.

James Halliday casually schools Linux devs:

well linux should be like 500+ separate projects anyways, not one giant big hulking one

Oh look, @substack sez npm jumped the shark.

But these days you have to find, install, and test some peckerhead's crappy lib because you want to html entities encode a string in node. Ruby's got some good tools, but my god there are a lot of gemfiles. I guess I just like the old school PHP approach of going back to a C lib function as quickly as possible and being done with it.

flatiron.js, ember.js,, *.gemspec, popcorn.js, endless v0.01 frameworks for all kinds of different tasks...

Anyone else getting HTML5 Technology Burnout?

Well said, well said, AMEN Brutha!

James Halliday has a wicked sense of humor. :)

Look at this very site. You believe this UI is any better than all those hipsters build? I see it's far worse and barely usable. So it's actually funny to read such an HTML5 Technology Butthurt from such a website that even has a buggy commentbox.
