Small is beautiful—the Component library

Dave Thomas:

For a while now I’ve been doing my Cassandra impersonation, telling everyone who’ll listen (and quite a few folks who won’t) that we need to be writing code in smaller chunks. I know what happens when we don’t, as I was the author of one of the largest early Rails applications (65kloc), and it became a nightmare to work with.

He doesn’t want the same thing to happen in Elixirland, so he’s released Component, which is “an attempt to make it so easy to write trivial standalone servers that people will just naturally split their applications up that way.”
