— This is an insult


Why assume I am strictly for or against something anyways? I am aware of all the points used to argue against electron and his were the least thought out of all of them, but they weren't false or close to anything I'd call foolish. What I called foolish is that he stopped his article at a point at which he could have provided some substance ie with devtools. It is a phrase called "half assing it".

— I would argue people abuse electron even, and there should be a minimum criteria met before using it

— Oh the irony...:

But of course it is the mark of a fool to idly complain about something he does not understand

— He went halfway, did not investigate past his system monitor

— Imo he should know better considering his resume

— Also imo his article would be more impactful (impactful enough) if he had provided that sort of substance

— But anyone can write what he wrote about anything. "my cpu/ram usage is too high on X app" is not enough substance to any argument calling for abandonment of a technology

— So while I agree on several points of his and others, and agree electron should not be the go-to platform for embedding web tech as native, I still call into question the author's true motives and find the lack of substance to be confusing for someone claiming to want change

— He literally claims he does not understand. Right in the article

— It's an opinion piece/blog post, not a new york times article

— He's just complaining about something that affects him, in his free time
