Published 30th April

Web Components were announced with gusto and enthusiasm, and then gradually slid back under the web designer’s radar. Like many technologies before them, it was a waiting game for browsers to catch up before adoption could really take off. 

Well, browser support is now (almost) green across the major players. Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera are all onboard — we’re just waiting for Edge to join the party. So, now is the perfect time to dig deeper into the world of web components and discover what they can do for you. Our latest lead feature (page 46) delves into the powerful APIs that make up web components. Find out how they work, what you can do with them, their key features, the best frameworks and tools to build with, two tutorials on how to build your own custom components and a selection of the most useful prebuilt components available today. 

When designing your latest project, you want as many people as possible to enjoy the experience. You need to be thinking how your design can be inclusive for everyone. On page 84, we reveal the steps you need to consider to make your websites and apps available, and usable, for everyone. 

Plus, we have tutorials on how to introduce animated scroll effects with the sal.js library, how to build an impressive WebGL 3D landing page, create custom WordPress layouts with Elementor and stop the bots with Google reCAPTCHA. Enjoy.
