re: Why the React community is missing the point about Web Components VIEW POST


Watching Polymer progress has given me mixed feelings about the nature of web components. I don't know if the current implementation of web components is a good solution to the problem they are trying to fix. React and other component libraries are proving to be better solutions at the time being.


What problems do you think they're solving? And better solutions for what?

For scoping CSS? Shadow DOM is the ONLY solution that provides both bottom up and top down style encapsulation.

For extending HTML? React components only work in React components; not in HTML.

For application orchestration? Web Components don't and aren't trying to solve that.
