End-to-End Polymer Apps with the Modern Web Platform (Chrome Dev Summit 2017)

Trying to build a web app that is large, maintainable, and fast? In the past, you’d have to pick two, at best. But what if it didn’t need to be this way?

On the Polymer project, we’re aiming to push the web platform and provide libraries and tools so that it might become easier to get the best of all worlds when building on the web. In this video, Taylor goes over the latest with the Polymer Project, including an end-to-end walkthrough of how the Polymer team envisions using web components, service worker, and other new web platform features to build high-quality PWA’s.

  1. Components from Webcomponents.org for shareable, reusable components are generally not very stable. The constant increase in polymer versions has a high maintenance cost. Many components, some even supported by polymer team, don't even have polymer 2.0 demos. Many individual components don't even work in 2.0 and won't compile in the build process under 'polymer build'. The ecosystem is definitely going in the right direction but the stability, for me, is not there yet. Looking forward to the future!

  2. I also really appreciate @tjsavage's mentioning Redux with Polymer best practices at 26m37s.

    1. Pushing state down to presentational components with `element.setProperties({…})`. I've been using Object.apply(elem, state) and `reflectToAttribute`.
    2. Send actions up to a controller component by using `presentationComponent.dispatchEvent(CustomEvent('MY_ACTION_TYPE', {detail: {…})`

    Those are real gems for folks who are new to Redux and Polymer as jumping straight into using polymer-redux feels like the deep end to me right now.

    Something to note, I bet the use of the detail property on the second argument object is probably lost on most folks that don't know that's a special property that bubbles up with events.
