A developer's first thought upon meeting a challenge (something the standard library or framework doesn't have) should not be "where can I find something that does that?", but instead "can I do that myself?"
Have to disagree here I'm afraid. If the problem is trivial then yes, that's a good attitude. If, however, it's going to take you six months to implement and you are writing this for a commercial product then you should probably look to the ready made version that ticks all the boxes as far as the functionality you need.
