Best Practices for JavaScript Library Versioning

I spend most of my time on this blog talking about Clojure, but in real life, I work on a lot of projects written in a lot of languages. Lately, much of my time has been spent writing and maintaining React-based front-ends in JavaScript. As far as I can tell, no language has solved the problem of dependency management. Some libraries are better than others, but upgrading dependencies is always an uncomfortable experience. That being said, I’ve never experienced more pain doing so than in JavaScript’s ecosystem.
