Chapter 1. The Arrival of Fusebox > Basic Fusebox Concepts

Basic Fusebox Concepts

Fusebox borrows many of its essential concepts from other systems. First, Fusebox is a way to organize program code. Second, Fusebox is a way to manage growing applications by organizing the application directories in a hierarchy. Third, and perhaps most fundamentally, Fusebox is a way to think about applications and the art of building them. Comparisons have been drawn between the Fusebox controller file and computer networks. Now let’s discuss each of these essential concepts in more detail.

A Way to Arrange Code

A great deal of thought has gone into the idea of organizing applications into some kind of logical framework. Code organization schemes are as old as computers. Back when computers used punch cards, programmers kept routines in tidy order. If you got a card out of sequence, your program did not function properly. And heaven forbid you drop a box of cards on the way to the computer! More discussions of code organization choices appear in Chapter 14, “Construction and Coding,” such as the popular Model-View-Controller (MVC) framework.
