  • If Web Components are so great, why am I not using them?

    Examples like this bug me. The React example is using a high level abstraction, the web component is directly using the API. A more accurate example would show how those React calls eventually boil down to document.createElement()

    I don’t think the Web Components API was meant to be used directly all the time. You can use a framework like StencilJS:

    You might say that this is the same vicious cycle as JavaScript frameworks. That's wrong, because Web Components are interoperable by design. Choosing Stencil or Lit or any other library is a development convenience that has little to do with the interoperability of the resulting components.
  • Is there a plugin that abstracts registering web components with React?

    I guess my problem is more specific to my overall architecture. I have components that when are placed in the DOM, have props rendered on them by their parent elements. I'm using stencil to do this.
  • 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/ .

    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.

    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.
