Custom Web Elements (also known as Web Components) are a part of modern web development that allows you to create your own reusable HTML elements with encapsulated functionality and styling. They are an excellent choice when:
One more thing to mention are Meta-frameworks like Next.js, Gatsby.js, SvelteKit, and Nuxt.js. They provide an additional layer of abstraction and simplification in web development. These frameworks offer the following benefits:
Meta-frameworks can be a great choice when working with Kontent.ai or any headless CMS since they are not tied to a specific programming language or website architecture. So far at BizStream, we have used Kontent.ai with Gatsby.js and, more recently, Next.js.
Another thing to think about is the project budget and the learning curve of using a larger framework or meta-framework. If no one has experience with Next.js and the budget is tight, it might pose too high of a risk to implement the site with it. On the other hand, if the budget allows the investment, frameworks, and meta-frameworks can be a joy to learn and work in.
