Web components - overview
Web Components are at the very heart of our strategy - which is based on native browsers and a standards-based component model.
This eliminates a number of problems, such as deciding between Angular, React & Vue, dealing with version clashes & upgrades, or needing to onboard web-framework specialists.
Our Web Components are built on top of Microsoft FAST, which is a lightweight abstraction that enables you to build performant, memory-efficient, standards-compliant Web Components.
Our Genesis packages are scoped to
@genesislcap. These consist of:
@genesislcap/foundation-ui: Base components
@genesislcap/foundation-zero: The zero design-system variant
@genesislcap/foundation-comms: Comms system
