Today we’re excited to publicly announce the launch of a preview edition of our site at https://component.kitchen.
At Component Kitchen, we think web components are fundamentally a great way to create apps and sites that run across an enormous range of desktop and mobile devices. We’re eager to help a mainstream audience learn about this technology, and discover for themselves how this technology is going to amplify their own creative capabilities as designers, developers, writers, students, business people, and more.
Earlier this year, we observed that most of the material and tools related to web components was intended for a fairly experienced technical audience. We feel that, since web components extend what’s possible with plain HTML and CSS, web components is actually fundamentally interesting to a much broader audience: anyone who is comfortable editing HTML. That’s a lot of people!
Additionally, we believe that people creating web components are going to need a range of services to help promote and distribute their components to a broad audience that includes both hardcore developers and people who work at the HTML level.
We’re starting with a few basics:
We have a number of interesting features ahead:
Our core mission is to help people create great products using web components. While we have many ideas for how we can do that, we’re most interested in hearing from you. If you have questions or suggestions for our site, let us know at @ComponentK on Twitter, or on our discussion board.
This is going to be such an exciting time to work on the web!
