That’s fair, but so is the argument one puts forth when we jam pack a plugin with every feature under the sun. When you have understanding of the methods behind what your trying to achieve in your app then a lot of plugins become a bit of JS here and there BUT when you are the claimed true target audience for bubble, some of these seemingly waste of time actions and styles become magical little tricks that bubble in a lot of cases simply doesn’t have.
I think a far better case of a plugin that is a waste of time is the stupid amount of times someone feels the need to create the same plugin, that does the same thing while screaming yer but it does this better rather than flick the dev a message and give them some advise on how to better develop the plugin and by extension better develop the bubble platform as a whole.
How great would it be if plugin developers actually catered for input and output functions specifically so a new plugin that requires those elements or actions could require them and there by keep all plugins relevant but extend the platform functionality at the same time.
There is one other very big issue here, Plugin developers are not just contending with multiple snap together use cases that are impossible to predict & having to cater for bubbles own quirks that can at times really be a pain but when this all comes together bubble themselves can be at times absolutely blind to how useful or needed something you build is to you, a client or the masses that they deny you with the hand of god unfortunately.
This whole platform, concept and idea surrounding no-code hit the ground running, by writing the first line of code… then the fixes come and continue to show up, personally I am thankful that bubble has managed to keep a platform that is no-code enough for the no-coders, ready enough for functional additions to be created even by the no-coders, fast enough for experienced dev to produce product overnight in some cases yet still manages to give you that little spark each time your next idea makes it to the new app landing page.
Its a tricky little world this so called bubble, its like expecting each element to totally accept the others.
