govuk_publishing_components: Moving components from an application into this gem
Normally you want to build components as close to their point of use, but at some point you will want to share a component between applications.
Try not to move components into this gem 'just in case', only do so when there is a real need.
This meant we moved these components into this gem. You can see how this worked happened with the following PRs. Generally the steps are as follows:
Move the component into the gem (update the namespace from
gem). Component tests in the gem use rspec, these made need to be updated if the app a component is ported from uses minitest or another test framework.
- Release a new version of the gem
- Update the application with this version and delete old app component files
