Increase modularity and code reuse

Breaking up your application into smaller, self-contained components is always a good development practice because it makes the code reusable and easier to maintain. The PixieApp framework provides two ways to create and run reusable components:

  • Dynamically invoking other PixieApps with the pd_app attribute
  • Packaging part of an application as a reusable widget
