Pros of cell
- Self contained - each element is its own universe (context) with its own variables and functions
- Self driving - each element communicates with outside world via stateless function calls. This means each cell can survive on its own and plug into anything with zero overhead/footprint.
- No API - cell is all about how you structure your logic and not about learning how to use some proprietary API.
