tfw somebody says "sure, electron is bloated, but everything is bloated" -- like, just because a problem is already horrible doesn't make it OK to make it worse\!
@enkiv2 the obvious response being, everything is bloated because people make lazy excuses for building and using bloated stuff.
@strypey @enkiv2Yup. It's not even a matter of optimization or whatever: it is literally easier not to use electron, from a dev POV, & the same is true of a lot of these sources of bloat.
