I've heard this before, where someone has made something for a specific project and then they
verb it to make it more generally available.
The example I can think of is Ruby on Rails:
It was originally created by David Heinemeier Hansson for Basecamp and then he ________________ it to make it into a framework that was useful for more than just Basecamp.
My mind wants to think it's an
abstraction but for some reason it doesn't seem like the word I'm looking for.
