As you are developing your Reusable Mindset, I want you to think about implementation and business logic. More specifically, think about how to separate a specific implementation from the business logic. This design pattern makes your code reusable.
For example, in our project, we have 2 custom meta boxes. Yet, both are using the same code. Imagine pulling the implementation out of the code and abstracting it into a configuration file. Now imagine that our business logic is rebuilt to accept a configuration file and then it processes it.
Why? In doing so, our business logic is built once. It accepts the implementation via a configuration file. We can customize our projects by configuring each meta box implementation and building a view file. But the business logic to add/register, render, and save is the same and not repeated.
Watch the video. Shift your mindset to separating implementation from business logic in your project’s architecture. Then we’ll build it in this lab to show you how to put into practice for yourself.
Who needs copy/paste? Right. Writing code from scratch is fun!
