Lightning Web Component (LWC) was introduced in December 2018. Salesforce LWC increases the usability of UI development. Developers who are new and familiar with a few primary frontend languages like Visualforce Pages can start using this framework without any in-depth knowledge of Aura Components or Lightning Components. As LWC uses modern JavaScript frameworks, developers who know only Node.JS or React can easily create code in LWC. 

Salesforce is appreciated across the globe as it provides a customized solution to every kind of business. So, the developers need to learn the tools very effectively to offer a personalized solution. But thankfully, in LWC., the requirements for technical skillset are not highly framework specific. 

In this blog, CloudVandana discusses the critical reasons for LWC adoption

1. Low Code Development

Lightning Web Components helps developers build web applications using standard-based tools to simplify the development process. Developers do not need any complex code to develop these web applications. These low-code and no-code functionalities have made this framework easy to adopt. 

2. Better security Of Salesforce LWC

LWC provides better security services with the help of Lightning Locker. Lightning Locker is a security architecture for Lightning components.  This service is automatically enabled to all custom Lightning Web Components. So developers can experience the complete security of their Lightning Web Components. 

3. Co-Existence Of Aura & LWC

Aura and LWC can exist on this platform side by side. Sometimes, Aura and LWC can even be merged on a page and share the data. In addition, these two components can communicate with the child components or other Aura components. For example, LWC utilizes Custom Events to communicate with Aura components and interacts with its child components through public APIs. 

4. Less Complicated Framework

When LWC was not introduced, web developers had to learn the Aura components to build the Lightning components. During the introduction of the Lightning framework, this leading CRM was looking for a programming model that could support large-scale client-side applications. Aura was then introduced to keep the Lightning framework, but Aura had a few limitations. For example, Javascript frameworks were not transferable to Aura. As a result, LWC was introduced, which focuses more on web standards than a complicated framework. As a result, it has become more convenient for developers who know the Javascript framework to work on LWC.

5. Enhanced Testing And Support

Facebook created a practical open-source framework for writing Javascript tests. Through this extension, developers can write unit tests for Lightning web components. 

These are the five critical reasons developers adopt the Lightning Web Component framework. Are you looking for experienced LWC developers? Please feel free to contact CloudVandana to get unlimited LWCs at a flat rate. For more information, visit
