I just read the following in the
I think the community should make some packages that define
fromIso8601 : String -> Maybe Time.Posixin Elm.
Okay, great. So I searched:
How are these sorted? Not by author name, package name, or version number AFAICT. By popularity (and if so, calculated how)? Randomly?
How do folks typically tackle the process of choosing which package best suits their needs? Picking amongst a half-dozen choices isn’t too daunting, I admit, but I worry that there is a nascent scalability problem here.
I note that two of these packages are clearly labeled as clones of
rtfeldman/elm-iso8601-date-stringsin order to make certain fixes available. I hadn’t encountered this before. Is this the way folks typically get around the problem of unmerged PRs? Again, I worry there is a nascent scalability problem here.
Interested to hear everyone’s thoughts – thanks!
