Web Components Today

A comprehensive knowledge base. Only up-to-date guides and resources.

Web Components are now widely supported and adopted by all modern browsers. First introduced in 2011, they had to undergo a long journey of trial and error, reaching consensus and standardization. Today, it's pretty clear that Web Components are here to stay. Explore this website to learn more:

  • Fundamentals are the first thing to check if you are completely new to Web Components. Start with Basics for an overview of what these standards are all about, and then proceed to the Beginner's Guide or Codelabs to learn how to create Custom Elements with plain JS.
  • Standards cover individual parts of the Web Components umbrella term. In practice, they are split across several web standards, like HTML, DOM, and CSSOM. Also, this section lists new proposals, experimental browser features and polyfills adding partial support for them.
  • Ecosystem is a collection of open source projects built by awesome folks and companies out there, including quite a few early adopters. This section includes libraries and tools, some great examples of design systems and component libraries, and a lot more.
  • Articles cover a range of topics, like the history of Web Components, or existing styling options. Developers using React, Vue, Angular, or Svelte could benefit from frameworks recipes. Exploring case studies might be a good idea before starting a new project.
  • Community is the smallest section, yet it's definitely special. Looking for a grain of salt? You might like opinions and takes, including criticism of Web Components. The showcase is all about sharing experience. Finally, there is a list of who to follow on Mastodon.
