How can a monorepo help you build a scalable project more efficiently?

There are a few ways to handle multiple packages used to create one project. The multirepo model assumes that the packages are located in different code repositories. Monorepo is a single repository that contains and handles different packages. Due to this fact, a monorepo can be mistaken for monolith architecture. However, let’s take a closer look at a project created as a monorepo and compare it with a monolith. We will notice that monorepo consists of multiple logically separated subprojects. This article will focus on monorepo architecture as it seems like the most modern approach to build complex apps. It is successfully used by companies such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and popular projects such as Create React App, Babel, Storybook, Primer, Jest, Strapi and many more.
