Feature-based development

Recently we changed the way we were working on JS Bin. Instead of pushing new features whenever it took my fancy – which could result in success or equally some kind of breakage – we’re now pushing new features under feature flags and it’s proving to be really quite powerful (and fun).

Use Statements and Code Readability

I was having a discussion on IRC about use statements and whether they improved code readability or not. Having thought about all the responses I received and having slept on it, I think that it’s preferable to be able to organise your code and name your classes such that when importing we minimise ambiguity. If we reorganised, we could come up with something like this:
