Web Components + Backbone: A Game-Changing Combination
December 14th, 2014
Web Components promise to change how we think about modularity on the web, and when combined with the structure and organization of Backbone.js we can create portable, dynamic, encapsulated UI modules that fit into any web application.
This talk will provide an introduction to Web Components, but will focus on how Backbone can utilize each of their APIs to create well-structured UI modules to be reused and shared between web applications. It will present patterns for creating these modules and consider best practices for creating components in sharable UI libraries. And while browser support for Web Components is rapidly improving, this talk will also consider the polyfills available to start using Web Components in Backbone.js applications today.
Web Components and Backbone.js complement each other and, together, are a revolutionary pair that offers new and exciting approaches for developing interactive UI modules on the web.
