From Monorepo Mess to Monorepo Bliss: Avoiding Common Mistakes

Monorepos have been around for a while but only recently gained popularity in the frontend community. Many developers are being confronted with them now and end up overwhelmed by the terminology and tooling. What are monorepos? Is it just about code colocation? Do I even need one, or is it a large enterprise / corporate thing?

Monorepos come with many benefits but also a lot of challenges. Easy incremental adoption & getting started quickly are just one aspect. Maintaining a healthy monorepo in the long run and keeping it growing and beneficial is a whole other task.
