Web components are the future, and the future is coming to DrupalCon
It’s been about a year since Nikki and I HAX‘ed DrupalCon Nashville. Now, Mike and I are about to embark to DrupalCon Seatle to once again, HAX all the things. HAXeditor has come a really long way since the last reveal. In the time since last year:
- HAX started to be used in production settings here
- Our UI, capabilities, accessibility and design patterns have dramatically improved
- We built tooling that automates all the tooling, setup and management of Web component workflows
- Firefox adopted Web components natively and Edge said it’s going to be Chromium under the hood
- We made a WordPress plugin for HAX
- Gutenberg came out in WP5 and started ticking people off
- We released our own, headless CMS (HAXcms) that now powers HAXTheWeb.org
