— Variable names matter


If they matter, why everybody minify their files? size matters more than some name inside some function.

— I know that noone reads production code, even it's well described and styled.

— Why would you read minified code?

— Read it before minification

— Even before)

— The writers of that code do

— Ye, but the writer know it better. sometimes ppl read to extract/copy some part..

— The writer doesn't always know it man

— Hey man, checkout the link above ^ it will be more productive talk)
