Episode 37: Stencil: Using TypeScript to Build Web Components

Josh Thomas and Adam Bradley join us from Ionic to talk about the Ionic component library and Stencil, a toolchain for building reusable components. As web technologies have changed and improved, so did Ionic—leveraging TypeScript, its build tools, JSX, and the Web Components specification.

We dive deep into how Stencil leverages the TypeScript tooling to create components that work well with a variety of frameworks. As the Web Components specification evolved, so did Stencil—Josh and Adam explain the problems they encountered and the interesting solutions they developed.
