Web Components

What is Web component.

A web component is a modular, reusable piece of code that encapsulates a specific functionality or UI element for use in web applications. It is an HTML-based technology that allows developers to create custom HTML elements with their own properties and behavior.

Web components consist of three main technologies:

  1. Custom Elements: These are HTML elements that are defined by the developer and can include their own custom behavior and properties.
  2. Shadow DOM: This is a way of encapsulating the styles and DOM tree of a web component, so that it doesn't interfere with the styles and DOM of the rest of the web page.
  3. HTML Templates: These are chunks of HTML that can be defined and reused as many times as needed, making it easy to create and manage complex web components.

Web components provide a way to create reusable and encapsulated UI elements that can be easily shared and used across different web applications, without worrying about conflicts with other elements on the page. They can also be used to improve code organization and reduce development time, as developers can create and reuse custom components instead of writing the same code over and over again.
