Web Components are the future of web development. Custom Elements, HTML Imports, Templates and the Shadow DOM form the basis for the creation of a new and larger family of HTML elements that make it far easier to reuse code and reason about how complex applications are put together.

The problem is that Web Components are still not natively supported in several common browsers, and the perception among many developers is that it’s best to bet on established web frameworks when starting new projects. Despite this, Web Components can be used today to future-proof code against framework churn and make the creation of high quality libraries and web applications even easier.


Understand how you can, and when you should, be using Web Components in your projects.
