It is. The thing is that the JavaScript/Node ecosystem has a lot of nice goodies. Take TypeScript for example; it has language features that I dream of when I’m writing C# (though honestly, it’s mainly union types). But even as I got more fluent in TS and wrote increasingly better code, I still ran into more issues than I did with C#. Frustrating part is, as you mention, that some of those issues are external, like in dependencies. I value my sanity and reliability far more than flashy new language features these days. :)
