I’m trying to compile “old” (2018) versions of Firefox to find which commit introduced a bug.

This is… not fun.

Not pre-built artifacts since it’s too old.
Compilation errors because glibc’s too recent.
Make errors (make: *** No rule to make target […])
Compilation errors that comes from nowhere, too.

Uh why Font Awesome icons have their size set to 1.28571429em by default??

«The excel class defines the usual properties of an Excel-generated CSV file. It is registered with the dialect name 'excel'.»

What are «the usual properties of an Excel-generated CSV file»? Is this even documentation?? Could use a little bit more precision there.

I need unit tests so bad for my project but why is it so hard. Isn’t the web the most used damn platform? Why does testing my WebExtensions feels like I’m doing a daunting, impossible task nobody has ever undertook?

Yeah I wanted to give up on unit tests but then I broke some things again and I’m tired of manually testing things. I just want to actually progress, not fight forever with unit tests or break things all the time.

jest, JSDOM, asking for help 

It’s not really hard to handle all this stuff, but the great amount of packages and the npm UI tend to make it confusing sometimes. But it’s hard so screw up something like it could happen with git so I guess it’s fine.

Anyway I’ve “20 low severity vulnerabilities in 1112084 scanned packages” I can’t do anything about now but it’s only development packages so I don’t care I guess, my packages are as up-to-date as they can be.

Please understand that’s only two (2) packages, acorn and minimist, but duplicated as a dependency of hundreds of packages. Obviously I don’t fucking care but somehow it’s important to spam my terminal with hundreds of lines of telling the same package is vulnerable.

me: let’s update a dev dependency of my addon
npm: found 38460 vulnerabilities (38441 low, 19 moderate)
