The Power of Nesting

The power of nesting lies in the additional functionality it allows. The idea is to allow circuits to be added to an application without going to great lengths to customize the circuit. This is done by constructing Fusebox circuits as homogeneous modules. To easily allow the desired functionality, Fusebox 3 focuses on modular design.

Modular design, in turn, means that Fusebox circuits can for the first time offer the prospect of working as a standalone application or as part of a larger application. This points toward the future potential of having Fusebox plug-in components that can be “snapped” together to create custom solutions.

For example, nearly every web application involves a login feature of some kind. Most of ...
