Every so often, I reflect on the quality of the code I have written. Often I’ll think to myself that something could be better without actually asking myself if it needs to be better. A script doesn’t need to be perfect when it works and does what you need it to.
As programmers, it is all too easy to engineer solutions in one’s mind. I would love to learn more about Bash because I feel that would enable me to do certain file system things so much quicker than I would in Python. But then again I see quite a few bash scripts and think they aren’t that elegant in comparison to Python.
I am rambling now…
I thoroughly enjoyed your blog post! It’s nice to hear there are other people out there who turn to scripts and then abandon them after realising they have created too much work for themselves. This applies not only to scripts but to web projects and any other coding project for that matter.
