Discussion on: It's not about Web Components vs. React

I really wish you wouldn’t tell someone you don’t know they are creating issues right off the bat. I’m sure this fumble erases all the times I’ve supported Web Components, am I right? Jeez. People first, not code first. This isn’t an attack on the project or you. Getting along just fine with ‘ @corpuscule/custom-builtin-elements’ in my latest project, which doesn’t need to support deprecated browsers like IE8.

I haven't attacked anyone, and me and the @corpuscule/custom-builtin-elements author already clarified a few things in the repository, so that he changed the README about few wrong things mentioned about the @ungap/custom-elements-builtin alternative polyfill.

There are reasons that poly has the constructor caveat, but I'll let you test yourself if it was valid or not.

I am not saying you attacked anyone, but your phrasing was rude in my opinion. No need for the last paragraph, just gratuitous.

I support Web Components (Custom Elements) since 2014 and before, and the @corpuscule/custom-builtin-elements had some FUD in the README regarding my polyfill, but it wasn't intentional, so that everything got sorted by me filing MR to that repository.

I guess there's some history behind you are missing, but the fact people prefer writing from scratch anything already available, instead of helping out, is one of the most obvious reasons Open Source has issues.

So, my comment was about that, and I've clarified with the author of the lib you have pointed me at, so, at least to me, is all good, I hope it's good to you too.

You're free to use whatever library you like, I just know that library has inevitably other issues, but I am not here to describe third party work.

Take care 👋
