Core: A Modular Implementation

We would like to share our current implementation of Cascade (+ lessons learned, tips, etc ...), which is based off "routers" where we define a base template with unified branding for the institution and are able to scale it per project.

The key concept for us is the use of "routers", which are formats that provide flexibility as well as modularization. Initially, every project pulls from our centralized resources (CDN within Cascade); based on requirements we proceed to adjust with either new components or modifications to existing ones. This approach allows us to provide a template that is both rigid and somewhat flexible to accommodate our institution's needs. In addition, we have been able to deploy more efficiently while maintaining unified branding, meeting accessibility requirements and projects deadlines.
