Electron be like
That’s not bloated by any definition.
That code snippet alone is not bloated, no. But that you need to launch basically a web browser to run it, that’s very fucking bloated.
Or in different terms, a Hello World in assembler is a lot more code, but I don’t think, anyone would call that “bloat”.
Also, I would generally call other interpreted languages “bloated”, too. I mean, Python is horrendously slow.
Even Java and the likes, which get compiled to “Byte Code” and then this Byte Code is interpreted by the JVM, is still a language which I consider “bloated”, unless it’s used for large-scale applications where the JVM overhead really doesn’t matter anymore.
That depends on the runtime environment I’d say.

Nobody is insinuating that a Hello World in any programming language is literally 1GB. It’s a hyperbole for comedic effect.
Eh, if you consider all the node modules as part of your codebase, even something basic written in Vue, Angular or Electron could well be near that size.
