Sharing code is hard. And it’s even harder when you have hundreds of developers! At BuzzFeed, we’ve built a library of shared components to support our busy engineers and high-traffic site. We already knew how to build a useful styleguide - but now we were sharing not just SCSS, but templates, JavaScript, analytics, icons, and more! We needed designers and developers across multiple teams to choose consistency over control. When should a component be shared? What standards should a shared component meet? How can we gain the benefit of each others’ work without stepping on each other’s toes? These are the answers we’ve come to.
