Recently i saw the post of the “Fucking Color Picker” on hackernews. As some pointed out in the comments, it is a huge 55 MB download (and 120 MB extracted) for a simple tool.
It is kind of crazy and a glimpse what’s wrong in software business today. Features and abstractions before performance.
It only starts needs one process (instead of 3), 30 MB Ram (instead of 180 MB) and actually does return the correct color:
Of course it has some drawbacks but I wouldn’t been much faster with electron and its feels a lot saner for a tool of this size. The color swatches are missing because I hadn’t so much time in my first days of perental leave as imagined 😊
