    1. Rather than write new tooling we decided to take advantage of tooling we had in place for our unit tests. Our unit tests already used FactoryBot, a test data generation library, for building up test datasets for a variety of test scenarios. Plus, we had already built up a nice suite of helpers that we coud re-use. By using tools and libraries already a part of the backend technology’s ecosystem we were able to spend less time building additional tooling. We had less code to maintain because of this and more time to work on solving our customer’s pain points.

    1. We certainly wouldn't want to add non-standard appendages to the fetch API, partly because it's confusing but mostly because it would be repetitious; you would need to include that logic in every load function that used the API in question.

    1. By abstracting the cleanup process in the cleanUp function, the three callbacks — timeout, success, and error listener — look exactly the same. The only difference is whether they resolve or reject the promise.

    1. Don't you hate to repeat yourself? For example, I hate working on anything related to user authentication or authorization that isn't directly related to the system I'm working on. I see it as necessary evil, an accidental complexity.

    1. We should also allow passing unrecognised props to the rendered component. eg: tabindex might be required on some instances of a component, and not all. Why should developers have to add tabindex support to their components just that it may potentially be used

      Glad to hear this is solved now: $restProps

    1. Thirdly, this provides no good way to control theming at an app level. Every time <Slider> is used, its style properties must be repeated. In most cases, that's probably not what we want.
    1. The dynamic routes are a great way to keep the routing.rb DRY and avoid unneeded dependencies between the routing and the controller files That is exactly the problem: I've already defined the (white)list of actions in the controller; I just want to make them all available via routes. I shouldn't have to repeat myself in the routes file.

    1. RDFa is intended to solve the problem of marking up machine-readable data in HTML documents. RDFa provides a set of HTML attributes to augment visual data with machine-readable hints. Using RDFa, authors may turn their existing human-visible text and links into machine-readable data without repeating content.
    1. In your environment you may want to always configure internationalization, routers, user data etc. If you have many different React roots it can be a pain to set up configuration nodes all over the place. By creating your own wrapper you can unify that configuration into one place.
