Would simply copying something into your project as small as 17 lines make for a good compromise?



No - then you won't get updates easily and everyone reading your project would have to make sure that your copy of the module hasn't diverged from the original module before working with it, especially if it's a larger module that has full documentation and a community of people who know how to work on it.


I've never seen so many programmers advocate copy/pasting code before... it's really surprising!

Something about javascript makes people crazy...


That's what I thought, but what concerns me with 100's or even 1000's of dependencies is managing them. Things like figuring out which ones have security issues without reading the issue tracker for each.
