Good read about letting “clean code” go. As the years go by, I increasingly err on the side of legibility over cleanliness. Sure, things could likely be tightened up, but does it really matter? If the code works, then there’s not too much to be gained from optimizing the shit out of it. The more important thing is that the code should be easily understood by your future self (or more likely a stranger that never worked on the project).
