New PWA Auth component

I recently read about this web component, called pwa-auth, and it sounds very interesting… looks like it might be the fastest way to implement a fast sign in for users with the new Credential Managment API supported by modern browsers.

I’m not sure how it stacks up agains other WordPress options for Oauth login, but I might have to give it a try.

React vs. Stencil

I read this great post on Stencil, which asks “Is Stencil a better React?” They point out that Stencil runs more performant than React, and has a very similar syntax!

Another part that I really like is that Stencil uses TypeScript, which makes for a bit more efficient syntax.

So back to the original question: is Stencil a better React? Yes, I think it is! I plan to be using Stencil more on new projects!
