Drab

Headless custom element library

Overview

The drab library is a JavaScript component library that focuses on providing useful functionality and wrappers around browser APIs. It is designed to be minimal in size and has one dependency, Svelte. The components support server-side rendering and transitions can be disabled for users who prefer reduced motion. The library takes a more opinionated approach compared to other headless UI libraries by providing basic HTML structure and default positioning for every component, while still allowing for customization using styles, slots, and slot props.

Features

  • Components are minimal in size and have one dependency, Svelte.
  • Progressive enhancement or fallback noscript message for components whenever possible.
  • Transitions can be disabled for users who prefer reduced motion.
  • All components support server-side rendering.
  • Basic HTML structure for every component with default positioning.
  • Customizable using styles, slots, and slot props.

Installation

To install the drab library, follow these steps:

  1. If you haven't used Svelte before, start with the tutorial.
  2. Install drab using npm or yarn:
npm install drab

or

yarn add drab

Web Components

Web components provide a way to create reusable, encapsulated UI components using standard web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. They allow developers to create complex UI components that can be easily shared across multiple projects and frameworks. Web components are built using four main specifications: Custom Elements, Shadow DOM, HTML Templates, and ES Modules.
