In today’s time, Salesforce has become an essential part of every organization that is looking to streamline its business through a powerful customer relationship management (CRM) system. Today, Salesforce (the world’s number 1 CRM) is widely used among various organizations from startups to large enterprises.
Salesforce is used by companies to seamlessly automate all of their processes and workflows and take customer satisfaction to a higher level. Due to the vastness of customizable features and proprietary languages, Salesforce creates a steep learning curve for developers. But luckily, the required technical skill set is less framework-specific with lightning web components and developers can easily and smartly utilize the Lightning web components’ framework.
Lightning Web Components
Lightning Web Components, introduced by Salesforce, is a new programming model that helps users build lightning components. It is a faster and smarter way of developing and deploying innovative applications with quality UI on the Salesforce Lightning Platform. It provides more choice to build and quickly deliver custom apps on the Salesforce Lightning Platform and staying ahead with the advanced features to new offerings.
Why more developers should consider Lightning Web Components?
Huge demand for skilled developers
Today, the need for Salesforce developers is huge. However, finding the right and best developer is often one of the most challenging tasks faced by the IT industry. More skilled professionals would help relieve the client’s anxiety by dealing with business issues more efficiently.
Less Training of framework
Before using LWC, web developers had to learn about the Aura framework to build custom web applications. When Salesforce launched the lightning framework, they were in search of the programming model that could support large scale client-side applications. So, when Salesforce couldn’t find the right programming model, they introduce their own programming model (Aura component) to support the Lightning Framework.
LWC and Aura can work together
LWC and Aura use Lightning Data services to get engage with the Salesforce Platform. With the introduction of LWC, Salesforce now has two programming models for building lightning components. Well, in some cases, Aura and LWC components can even be merge in a single page and can share the same data.
Aura and LWC can interact with each other and their child components through events. Aura uses the Application and Components event to communicate with child communicate or other Aura components. LWC utilizes Custom events to communicate with Aura Components.
Better security support and services
Systematic Testing & Standardized Support
No more extensive use of Developer console
The golden days of working on Developer console are now over. Previously, project teams had to back up their metadata code every day to ensure it wouldn’t be lost due to a mistaken refresh of Sandbox.
Today, Salesforce is enabling repository-based development that allows developers to build components in their local drive and then move their code to the repository, scratch Org, or to a Salesforce Org.
Now, Org developers have a lightweight open-source IDE “Visual Studio Code” provided by Microsoft and can use Salesforce DX, where each developer can spin up their own developer org and work independently on it.
