What are the options then? You either:
  • Build your own libraries from scratch and maintain them yourself, potentially taking weeks or months of work
  • Manage your own dependencies with version control by manually downloading whatever you need and having them copied into your projects
  • Use dependency managers like NuGet, Maven, Gradle, npm etc
You make it sounds like there is no winning solution. I'd much rather make use of a dependency repository and know I can almost click + collect a solution to whatever problem I have, than spend a long time Googling for an answer and then trial and error'ing until I find a working version.

And the issue of people pulling libraries is a non-starter if you're using an appropriate dependency proxy. In Java we have Nexus, which acts as an intermediary which downloads and caches dependencies, so even if they're pulled from the internet (or someone maliciously overrides an existing version) we have constant access to what we need.

I'd be more than happy to hear alternatives to dependency/package managers!
