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.

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.

Web Components Remote Conference is a two day conference all about Web Components. 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.

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.

Denis Radin (@PixelsCommander), Web Component advocate, has started work on a project called Polymer Native to enable developers to create part-hybrid, part-native applications using Web Components.

This project aims to make it easier to get device specific look and feel in your applications by leveraging native elements on devices. Currently, the project supports iOS and it is hoped that more people will come onboard to help the open source project grow to other platforms such as Android and even TV platforms.

Software developer at Softwire, Tim Perry (@pimterry), has created a set of “Server Components”. These are simple, lightweight tools for “composable HTML rendering in Node.js, broadly following the Web Components browser specification, but on the server side”. Rob Dodson (@rob_dodson), Google Developer Advocate & Polymer Legend & Trey Shugart (@treshugart), Atlassian superstar & SkateJS creator, round out the the guests for this episode discussing the reality & the possibilities of using Web Components on the server. Additionally, we look at other projects like the ‘Express Web Components’ by Jordan Last that take a different approach to this by running Chromium on the server side.

The views expressed by Eric Knudtson on The Web Platform Podcast episode 97 do not necessarily represent the views of GE

Eric Knudtson (@vikingux) from GE Digital walks us through their Predix User Interface (Predix UI) Web Components library built on top of Google’s Polymer Project. Predix is a cloud platform built to assist developers build for the ‘Industrial Internet’. Under the Predix family or resources is Predix UI, a set of UI components that “enable designers and developers to quickly and easily create Industrial Internet web applications that run on top of Predix services and data.” Eric also discusses challenges and best practices for managing a component based UI architecture, as well as GE’s new open source initiatives.
