If you build interactive news applications or graphics, you likely agonize over this question: “Can I reuse this, or is this a one-off?” If reusable, what uses cases will it cover? Will it integrate with future tools? How far in the future should you plan? If it’s a one-off, are you throwing away that work? Or will similar projects have you rebuilding, repeating yourself and reinventing the same wheel? There’s lots of middle ground and lots of room for debate. So, let’s have that debate.
