Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
The benefits of Web Component Libraries
4 projects | dev.to | 27 Feb 2023
Web component browser APIs aren't that many, and not that hard to grasp (if you don't know about them, have a look at Google's Learn HTML section and MDN's Web Components guide); but creating a web component actually requires taking care of many small things. This is where web component libraries come in very handy, freeing us of having to think about some of those things by taking care of them for us. Most of the things I'll mention here are handled one way of another by other libraries (GitHub's Catalyst, Haunted, Hybrids, Salesforce's LWC, Slim.JS, Ionic's Stencil) but I'll focus on Google's Lit and Microsoft's FAST here as they probably are the most used web component libraries out there (ok, I lied, Lit definitely is, FAST not that much, far behind Lit and Stencil; but Lit and FAST have many things in common, starting with the fact that they are just native web components, contrary to Stencil that compiles to a web component). Both Lit and FAST leverage TypeScript decorators to simplify the code even further so I'll use that in examples, even though they can also be used in pure JS (decorators are coming to JS soon BTW). I'll also leave the most apparent yet most complex aspect for the end.

Look into https://stenciljs.com/ .5 projects | reddit.com/r/web_design | 9 Dec 2022
We used https://stenciljs.com/ for web components to be consumed by angular, AEM and react at a previous employer. It uses tsx/jsx. Components are easy to write and it has good documentation.
Hexagonal architecture as a solution to the obsolescence of UI frameworks
4 projects | dev.to | 7 Nov 2022
For the creation of web components, even though writing in vanilla js is an option, we have chosen to do it via a dedicated framework, which will solve many potential integration/bundling problems. The choice of the framework will be made according to different factors that are not part of the scope of this article.
Ask HN: Help me pick a front-end framework
13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Sep 2022
Maybe have a look at Stencil (+ Ionic). https://stenciljs.com/
- Simple to learn
- Doesn't change all the time
- First-class TypeScript support
- Good default UI via Ionic
- Compiles to Web Components (although to be honest, this doesn't really matter)
- Easy testing
- Ionic as a company invests in Ionic the framework + Stencil the compiler. Might be around in 10 years, altough things could change. But this is true for all frameworks.
- You basically get an iOS/Android app for free, if you just dump the output in Capacitor (also developed by Ionic the company).
- Stencil is not very widespread as a frontend framework.
A Letter to D1sc0rd for not Supporting the Linux Desktop

because react-native is only reactlike. I may or may not want to stick with that. I think something like this is leading us towards a better and less UI lib specific approach. https://github.com/ionic-team/stencil/ . I don't think is 100% where we end up, but it is based on web components, so it's moving the entire ecosystem forward, not just a slice of it.
By Crayons and For Crayons
12 projects | dev.to | 13 May 2022
The app is built using vanilla Web Components without using any component publishing libraries like Stencil, Lit and so on. The reason being I met with some roadblocks in building a drag-n-drop editor using these libraries. Actually the Crayons Team itself is using Stencil to build the Crayons components using TypeScript and React-like component semantics and finally publish them as platform native Web components and React wrappers for the same. You can find out more about this in the Stencil documentation.

The Case for Web Components
2 projects | dev.to | 14 Apr 2022
While you can build components directly from the supporting Web APIs, you might find it productive to use a library that's been built to support this task. Lit and StencilJS are two of several libraries with acompanying tooling to help you build web components. And because they compile to the same 'target', they give you an additonal advantage: if you choose to switch web component libraries at some point in the future, you can make the switch for new components without having to rewrite the old ones, and use both in the same application.
A Generalized User-local Container for UI State in Kredis
3 projects | dev.to | 22 Mar 2023
, Shoelace, Lit, etc.). Wrapping Up In part one of this series, we described what Kredis can and cannot do, and developed an example use case for storing ephemeral UI state using a bespoke Redis key. In this second and final part, we identified the drawbacks of this approach. We developed a generalized solution to apply to any DOM node whose state of attributes we want to track on the server side. Finally, let me point out that these considerations inspired me to develop a library called solder, which I would be happy to receive feedback on! Happy coding! P.S.

Pattern for reusable components?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/htmx | 16 Feb 2023
Check out https://pypi.org/project/slippers/ and https://pypi.org/project/django-render-block/. You could use those with your own HTML, or with something like Bootstrap. https://shoelace.style/ is another option. If you use shoelace, this extension will help https://github.com/benopotamus/htmx-ext-shoelace
What UI framework would you recommend?
10 projects | reddit.com/r/sveltejs | 2 Feb 2023
Shoelace simple and lightweight, easy to customize. It's not Svelte specific because it's implemented with pure web components. Works great with Svelte though.
Is there a better option than plain HTML, CSS and JS for creating my own design system?
10 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 16 Jan 2023
Check out https://shoelace.style/ Its based on web components, so you can use it with any framework or even vanilla js.

I don't think UI is part of HTMX's concerns. It is a library for submitting data and loading HTML fragments. For general UI components, I like https://shoelace.style/.
