AI also has high standards of code review that any new feature should live up to. This is expected of any quality OSC project, given code-readability should be maintained at all times.
A simple PR at AI can take months to be approved because reviewers are not always full-time AI developers, and so they may not find time to review changes asap. Moreover, changes made to AI sources go through several iterations of review and edits before being merged.
At Kodular, we do not have any such issues that make addition of new features rather time-consuming. Since we’re a more integrated team, we are able to review and edit faster than others, and since Kodular is closed source, we can get away with using “kludges” and “optimisations” that may not always make sense. It is easy to ask the original developer about said changes, since they’re a part of the team too. That’s how we are able to bring out features at quite a rapid pace.
