My experience with building Mastodon has taught me that JS developers don't know how to write CLI apps.

It's okay, a lot of Python devs don't know how to do it either (see Pipenv).

@djmoch I thought Mastodon was a Ruby app, is there some significant part using JS? Obviously the front-end would be JS heavy, but I wouldn't expect a JS CLI for a Ruby app

@jwkicklighter There’s a fairly heavy yarn installation as part of the Mastodon build process. It worked fine, but the stuff it did just displaying its progress made my terminal all glitchy. 🙄
