I found a fresh new mobile web hell: this site has an auto scrolling carousel, but with differing number of entries per slide, so the height varies on mobile. And it continues rotating even after scrolling past it, causing the page to jump up and down. Excellent work web team.

A month earlier, someone in Bird's IT department had been tasked by his superiors to write a script that would allow the company to instantly shut down all of a user's accounts – computer, email, Slack – with the click of a single button, according to an employee. He was told the script would be used for general off-boarding rather than the mass layoff that he ended up being included in.

This is mostly a javascript apps in the browser are terrible tire fire, but ends with a good point that hiding complexity with more complexity, in any context, is just kicking the can.


@garybernhardt: When sourcemaps were introduced, worries about them were frequently shouted down with "The browser automatically applies the sourcemap, so you see the correct lines, so it's fine." This was wrong.

@garybernhardt: Every web app, including https://www.executeprogram.com, has to deal with tons of errors caused by outdated browsers, broken extensions, etc. We have a 422-line (and growing) file that catalogs errors that we ignore. Here's an example entry.https://pic.twitter.com/MfKDYinUye

@garybernhardt: Catalog entries like that one specify two data points that must both match: the error message (errorMessageSubstring) and the error stack (stackSubstring). If they match, we show an error page with ourMessage and don't log the error in Bugsnag. Spot the bug in that screenshot.

@garybernhardt: The bug is that it says "codemirror.js", which is a string that doesn't exist in the error stack, because the code has been mangled by the JS toolchain. The "codemirror.js" string does exist in the sourcemap... which isn't loaded when errors are thrown.

@garybernhardt: There's a tradeoff being made here. We want small assets, so we strip out all information that could aid debugging. I'm not interested in arguing about whether the tradeoff is good or bad, or whether we should've accepted this complexity as a permanent part of the web.

@garybernhardt: I am interested in arguing against the claim that started the thread: "The browser automatically applies the sourcemap, so you see the correct lines, so it's fine."

@garybernhardt: The people making that argument imagined the most obvious use case, and it seemed OK, so they were satisfied. "There's an abstraction, and it seems to work in the simplest case, so no problem exists" is a pervasive and often catastrophic way to judge a system.
