    It’s not uncommon these days to see people complaining about just how complex JavaScript development seems to have become. We can have some sympathy with that view when it’s coming from someone new to the language. If you’re learning JS, it won’t take long for you to be exposed to the enormity of the ecosystem and the sheer number of moving pieces you need to understand (at least conceptually) to build a modern web application. Package management, linting, transpilation, module bundling, minification, source maps, frameworks, unit testing, hot reloading… it can’t be denied that this is a lot more complex that just including a couple of script tags in your page and FTPing it up to the server.
