Components and modules for front end sanity at scale

We seem to keep learning the same lesson about monolithic things being bad, and modular things being good. It's time to learn that lesson for web UI. With web components on the horizon, at the FT we set out to completely redesign our strategy for developing websites. Totally modular, with the strength of package management, strict versioning and standard build processes at its core, we're building with ultimate flexibility in mind. We can no longer afford to build complex pieces of UI for only one website, as the number of web products also increases (we have 600 domains) we need to spend less time on each one and yet increase performance and improve user experience across the board. Our answer is a standard called Origami, which we're working on in public.
Come and hear about it!
