Discussion on: Why you should reinvent the wheel

First of all, great article. Second, I totally agree with you.

I've been working as a software engineer (full stack) for a while now, 6 years to be exact. During that time I've used all popular front-end frameworks on various projects.

From time to time I've been noticing that things could be done differently or in a way to be easier to use, if not better. From that point on, my thoughts were the same as this article is describing. At first, I was curious how something was done and implemented. After that I wanted to learn it and understand it because by doing that I could meet my need to make something different or easier to use, as mentioned at the start of this comment.

In simple terms, I reached the point when I wanted to reinvent the wheel. :)

By doing this we are constantly improving the tools we use as developers and making them better.

Here is my attempt to reinvent the wheel and give something back to the community that gave me so much: GitHub:plazar-js

I don't know if it's going to be easier to use or better, that is something community should decide, but it's different.

I wish you best of luck!

Understanding how something works is the best way to use it perfectly. Continue like that, that's a good project right there!
