Andrew is a freelance software developer, based in Somerset, UK. He spends most of his days programming in Ruby, contributing to open source projects and organising local developer user groups.

The default app generated by create-react-app installs 768 transitive dependencies: am I the only one who thinks this is ridiculous?

What does an increasingly granular, sprawling tree of dependencies mean for your project? Is it a problem we all share? What should we be aware of when selecting software to use? Should we do things differently?
