    1. The VTE widget was originally designed as the back-end for Gnome Terminal but was fortunately designed as a GTK widget so that other terminal emulator applications could leverage it instead of rolling their own. Many popular Linux terminal emulators use this component.

    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. My reasoning for not gemifying ActiveForm is that the custom not-rails-core logic is relatively small
    2. I've utilized as many Rails modules as I can to make maintenance a lot easier as I just have to update Rails and I get the updates for free. By utilizing Rails core modules, it's a really small library - there are only 10 methods in the Base module!
    1. I'd like to know specifically what you were aiming to achieve with this Gem as opposed to simply using https://github.com/apotonick/reform? I am happy to help contribute, but equally if there is a gem out there that already does the job well, I'd like to know why we shouldn't just use that.

    1. I've only done components that need to/can be Svelte-ified. For some things, like RTL and layout grid, you can just use the MDC packages.
    2. This is Sass based, and therefore doesn't require Svelte components

      Just because we could make Svelte wrapper components for each Material typography [thing], doesn't mean we should.


      • material-ui [react] did make wrapper components for typography.

        • But why did they? Is there a technical reason why they couldn't just do what svelte-material-ui did (as in, something technical that Svelte empowers/allows?), or did they just not consider it?
      • svelte-material-ui did not.

        • And they were probably wise to not do so. Just reuse the existing work from the Material team so that there's less work for you to keep in sync and less chance of divergence.
