Although web components are still on the bleeding edgebarely supported in modern browsersthe technology is also moving extremely fast. This practical guide gets you up to speed on the concepts underlying W3Cs emerging standard and shows you how to build custom, reusable HTML5 Web Components.

Regardless of your experience with libraries such as jQuery and Polymer, this book teaches JavaScript developers the DOM manipulations these libraries perform. Youll learn how to build a basic widget with vanilla JavaScript and then convert it into a web component thats semantic, declarative, encapsulated, consumable, and maintainable. With custom components, the Web can finally fulfill its potential as a natively extensible application platform. This book gets you in at the right time.

  • Explore UI concepts and patterns typically abstracted away by Dojo, jQuery UI, Kendo UI, and other libraries
  • Dive into the W3C standard and convert your working widget example into a fully functioning web component
