A site for the little libraries
The recent ugliness was sparked by microjs.com, a small project which aims to list some of the more useful tiny (5K or less) code libraries out in the wild.
Then the flames started spewing over Twitter. The brunt of the griping was focused on @thomasfuchs (of script.aculo.us and zepto.js fame) and @ded (ender.js and about 100 other handy things). Arguments generally centered around the size limit (5K): “that’s so arbitrary, why can’t my lib get listed too” (generally followed by much wailing and gnashing of teeth).
