probably the funniest thing about the js package breaking things is that at no point is any js developer going to take a moment to think about "wow, if one dude 57 dependencies down the chain can commit 'crash_app()' and it breaks thousands of builds everywhere, maybe we should be slightly concerned about an entire language built on the concept of implementing basic functions as open-source micro modules and the possibility of modules that are silently evil instead of just the obvious showstoppers"

i imagine that state actors love this ecosystem because all you really have to do is find one or two packages you can poke stuff into and you're tapped into millions of dumb apps



that said github locking the guy out of his own account is a pretty hearty lol

his open sores claim to fame is a library with constants for ansi color codes

perhaps people should use libraries with single ansi colors (1.1 million weekly downloads)

if you really want a hearty lol there's always log-symbols

21,984,229 weekly downloads and 3,637 dependents

here it is:

code:
import chalk from 'chalk';
import isUnicodeSupported from 'is-unicode-supported';

const main = {
	info: chalk.blue('ℹ'),
	success: chalk.green('✔'),
	warning: chalk.yellow('⚠'),
	error: chalk.red('✖'),
};

const fallback = {
	info: chalk.blue('i'),
	success: chalk.green('√'),
	warning: chalk.yellow('‼'),
	error: chalk.red(''),
};

const logSymbols = isUnicodeSupported() ? main : fallback;

export default logSymbols;

if (isUnicodeSupported()) { useUnicode(); } else { useDifferentUnicode(); }

the forums converted it to html entities, it appears as regular text in the code proper. that said i do wonder if the "non-unicode" ones actually work on not-unicode consoles considering that the check and cross marks aren't plain low ascii and presumably the file's encoding is utf8 since it's for console output

He is the worst programmer that I'm aware of. It would be a net gain if all of his packages were scrapped from npm.
