After all, new best practices promulgated by the likes of JavaScript technologies like React are overturning our preconceived notions about components and our foregoing definitions. For instance, React now contains both declarative rendering of components through JSX and efficient document object model (DOM) diffing through the concept of Virtual DOMs. Despite all of this progress, however, content management systems (CMS) like Drupal and others have not kept pace with the rapid change in how components are realized in front-end ecosystems. Can they ever catch up? <a href="https://www.drupal.org/u/fabianx">Fabian Franz</a> (Senior Technical Architect and Performance Lead at Tag1) presented <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK4BG3hsN3I">a well-attended session entitled "Components everywhere: Bridging the gap between back end and front end"</a> at DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019 that articulated his dream vision for shared components across back end and front end in Drupal's own native rendering.

At DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019, <a href="https://www.drupal.org/u/fabianx">Fabian Franz</a> (Senior Technical Architect and Performance Lead at Tag1) delivered <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RK4BG3hsN3I">a session entitled "Components everywhere: Bridging the gap between back end and front end"</a> that delved into his ideal vision for enabling such shared components in Drupal's own native rendering layer.

Why haven't they arrived in environments like the Drupal CMS's own front end? Many native CMS presentation layers tend to obsolesce quickly and present a scattered or suboptimal developer experience, particularly against the backdrop of today's rapidly evolving front-end development workflows. But according to Fabian Franz, there is a solution that allows for that pleasant front-end developer experience within Drupal itself without jettisoning Drupal as a rendering layer. The solution is a combination of Web Components support within Drupal and intelligent handling of immutable state in data that allows for Drupal to become a more JavaScript-like rendering layer. Rather than working with endless render trees and an antiquated Ajax framework, and instead of reinventing Drupal's front-end wheel from scratch, Fabian recommends adopting the best of both worlds by incorporating key aspects of Web Components, the Shadow DOM, and particularly syntactic sugar for declarative components that competes readily not only with wildly popular JavaScript technologies like React and Vue but also matches up to the emerging approaches seen in ecosystems like Laravel.
