A day in modern software development is oft marked with an hour or so trying to figure out why a tool that worked yesterday isnt working today.

Imagine a carpenter having to spend 1/3 of their day repairing their hammer which suddenly broke overnight.

@s this message sponsored by Docker/build systems/dependency management tools?

@theheadofabroom Surprisingly, no! I leave docker to the devops folk. This was the reoccurring issue of Fish shell having second-class-citizen support in Pyenv.

@s isn't that because Fish should be installed using system python?

@s i started using containers to avoid this pain, only to find out that sometimes a host update will break the container (systemd-nspawn is particularly bad about this).

the state of our industry makes me want to cry
