In this episode, Leon and Justin sit down with Jan Miksovsky and Rob Bearman of of the recently released Elix Project. Elix is a community-driven collection of high-quality web components for common user interface patterns such as lists, menus, dialogs, carousels, and so on. The modular nature of web components let you easily incorporate them into your web apps, and their standard definition ensures good results across all mainstream browsers.

Nolan Lawson a PM at Microsoft Edge joins us today to talk about PouchDB a popular open source project he’s a maintainer of. PouchDB is an open-source JavaScript database inspired by Apache CouchDB that is designed to run well within the browser. In this episode we get into what PouchDB is good at and what type of projects would benefit from using PouchDB for their persistence layer (turns out, many!). PouchDB is framework agnostic but plays very well with many popular frameworks and libraries. Nolan gets into the performance of PouchDB and also what storage mechanisms it supports which include IndexedDB, WebSQL, LevelDB and many more. The episode takes a very unexpected turn leaving Justin, Danny and Leon wrapping up with some of their own PouchDB experiences.

This week we are joined with special guests Jan Miksovsky and Rob Bearman from Component Kitchen to talk about their work on the Web Component Gold Standard. The Gold Standard is an open source project which outlines best practices for creating Web Components. The Gold Standard presents developers with a checklist they can use to ensure their Web Components are of exceptional high quality matching that of native elements. The episode goes into where the requirement for the Gold Standard came from and why it is such an invaluable resource for Web Component developers. This includes discussion on why code reuse on the web is so difficult and how Web Components and the Gold Standard can help. We also talk about the future of the Gold Standard and how the community can help make it even better.

Jordan Last (@lastmjs) will be delivering a very interesting talk “Universal Web Components” which takes the idea of Web Components for GUIs, throws it out the window and then uses Web Components to control a drone instead! With the Custom Elements and Shadow DOM specifications settled on V1 and greater browser support than ever now is the perfect time to be investing in Web Components. This episode covers why Web Components are important, what challenges people face and some very interesting use cases for Web Components you probably never thought of.

Static Web Applications have evolved quite a bit over the past few years. They are now longer just a flat file with scripts added. Now they are fully functional application stacks. This might sound strange to some but the truth is out there. Listen to Brian Douglas (@BdougieYo) from Netlify chat about their structure and vision for Static Apps known as JAMStack.

WebComponents.org have long been a great resource for learning and understanding web components. Recently, Google along with several other developers have worked hard to make the site a place not only to consume information on web components, but to share your own components as well consume others.
