As I sit here thinking about you, I can’t help but feel a rush of excitement in my heart. I know that to some, you may seem like a dry and unromantic tool, but to me, you are the epitome of true love. Your simple syntax and powerful capabilities have stolen my heart and made my programming process so much smoother. Who knows how many keystrokes you have saved me since we first met? I used to spend hours typing out long and complex build commands, but now, with you by my side, those days are long gone. I shudder to think about how much time and energy I would have wasted without you.
Your knack for automating commands and streamlining my build, is like a loving partner who knows exactly what I need before I even ask. It’s as if you have a sixth sense for my needs and desires. You’re like a chameleon that can adapt to any language or environment. That kind of versatility is seriously impressive, and it makes me feel like you’re always up for a new adventure.
And what really sets you apart, is your reliability. You never let me down or give me any trouble. You always do exactly what I tell you to do, without any fuss or drama, and you’re always there wherever I go. That kind of dependability is what every programmer dreams of in a partner.
But, let’s be real here, make, you’re not perfect. I have to admit
that sometimes you can be a little old-fashioned and quirky, with your
insistence on using tabs instead of spaces, and your archaic syntax that
can take some getting used to. And don’t even get me started on those
.PHONY targets. Despite your quirks and flaws though, I
still love you. Because when it comes down to it, your benefits far
outweigh your drawbacks. You make my programming process so much more
efficient and streamlined, and you save me countless hours of tedious
work. Plus, you’re always there for me when I need you, and you never
let me down.
So here’s to you, make - quirks and all. You may not be perfect, but you’re pretty darn close. Thank you for being the tool that I never knew I needed, and for making my life as a programmer so much easier and more enjoyable.
With love and a pinch of frustration,
A Hopelessly Devoted Programmer
If everything goes south and I find a better replacement for GNU Emacs, Magit1 would definitely be the hardest to replace. It is deeply ingrained in my daily workflow and I can’t imagine using Git with anything else. Having said that, I always hated how it…

You should be able to communicate without worrying that every gossip tidbit, meme, or joke you share and who you share it with will get churned up into fodder for targeted ads or used to train an AI model. You also shouldn’t have to strip …
