Intro to Bit

Bit is a build system for composable software. It makes the composition of applications from independently versioned components seamless and fast.

The core innovation of Bit is the Bit Component, a container for composable software components. You can think about it as a next-generation package. It is extensible, portable and seamless to maintain.

People often use Bit to run a Monorepo, a Polyrepo or Distributed architecture.

Bit is designed for incremental adoption, and can be added to most codebases in few minutes.
