Top 9 Web Components UI Libraries
Because there is so much emphasis on web components now, like Stencil, Svelte, Lit HTML, and more, we decided to write this article to showcase the best web component libraries that are available today and will be prominent in 2020 and after.

Google has a component library named Polymer, which allows users to build web components that are encapsulated and reusable and can be used completely like standard HTML elements – they can be imported in exactly the same way. There is also a GitHub page named Polymer elements which contains over 100 reusable Polymer components. They are organized as standalone repositories, and users can browse and use any of them in their professional projects easily off the shelf by importing their scripts directly from the Polymer library’s website, online, to be used just like any other existing built-in HTML element.

Elix is another reusable set of web components that are both community-driven and customizable. They are targeted for common UI patterns, and they’re all extremely high quality, measured against The Gold Standard Checklist for Web Components, a standard that compares web components to the built-in HTML elements, holding them up as the highest quality. The Elix community is also looking for new contributors to help develop it.

This option is a promising new component library that has a set of almost as many as 30 constantly evolving open source web components that permit users to build the UI of web applications for mobile devices as well as desktop ones, on any modern browsers. Like Google’s Polymer components, Vaadin elements can also be used just like normal HTML elements. As Vaadin’s development is still ongoing and is in the rather early stages though not quite in beta like Google’s previously mentioned Material components library, it’s hard to know exactly absolutely how this library will end up, but it is also definitely a library to keep an eye on.

As per Peter Kascinski, a UI manager at Boomessays, “Wired elements is a collection of elements that actually look like they’re hand-drawn. A very popular option that’s built for wireframes, it’s done this way so that every rendering is different than the next one, just like any hand-drawn shapes. This is definitely a neat offering for web components that we should all be exploring.”
This unique library of elements, though they actually do not look like wires, is rather novel and would lend quite an unusual appeal to any more casual, personal projects you could think of using these for and are already stable, fully functional graphical elements.
This one is substantially less new than others on the list, and it’s essentially a web component that gives custom types of the standard HTML
