I find that I can lean on certain frameworks and libraries too much sometimes. It's so easy to accomplish certain things with libs or frameworks that if pressed to write the same code without the lib, it's more difficult than it should be for me.
lodash became "crutch" libs for me for a time and once I started using ES2015 I had to unlearn the practice of using lodash for everything. Turns out most of the things that I was using lodash for are available natively in ES2015.
filter, etc feel better when using the
Array.prototype version than having to require a lib.
I'll plan to post a short blog about each project here and you can follow my progress or even join in!
