The console’s a place where a Software Engineer usually is. So why not that turn that chance into an app? Or also, why not let the community develop features based on its needs?.
I’m a big fan of comparisons and metaphors, so I’ll explain this topic, with a lot of examples and in a simple way. So let’s start.
Libraries are a set of functions, macros, structures, etc, that can’t do anything alone.

Therefore we can conclude that:
