Reading Length 2.0 - Refactor or start from scratch?
December 31st, 2018
Do I refactor what I have, or start from scratch?
Before I go ahead and delete my codebase, I have one primary consideration: writing it in the first place took a long damn time. Would it be worth it to rewrite what I have to make it cleaner or break it up into pieces that fit into my vision?
One part of me wants to dive into the repo and refactor what I can. Another part of me attended business school and is aware of the sunk cost fallacy.
I'm going to start my redesign from scratch and document that journey here, from start to finish.
This is the first post in a series where I redesign my website, Reading Length.
