Salesforce Lightning Web Components (LWC) is a new addition to the Salesforce platform. It helps the Salesforce Lightning Platform a step forward to UI development by using web standards. LWC has brought an extensive change in the Lightning platform programming. This addition is like a ‘cherry on the top’ for the developers working with HTML and Javascript outside Salesforce. 

In this blog, CloudVandana will describe an overview of LWC, Salesforce Lightning Components, and its benefits.

Lightning Web Components

LWC is an updated version of developing Salesforce Lightning components. This UI framework is based on HTML and Javascript. Previously Lightning Components were created by the Aura component framework. But recently, it has been developed by a new framework. Lightning Components uses core web component standards and holds custom elements, decorators, modules, templates, and shadow DOM. 

The Functions Of LWC

Developers need to focus on the invention of LWC, where Salesforce had the Aura Component framework. Previously, the Aura programming model only offered a specific foundation for the entire stack. So the programmers were searching for large-scale web applications. However, a variety of elements were missing from the web standards. As a result, the web stacks were not effective in helping the developers create UI components. Besides Aura, many other frameworks like Angular and React came to the field, but various key elements were missing again. These challenges influenced the developers to create UI components. 

Developers can check the templates, custom elements, and shadow DOM modules as part of the web stack. The latest web stack is so powerful that programmers do not need an additional framework layer in-between that can harm the component functionalities. 

So these are the main reasons behind the invention of the LWC framework. LWC comes along with various lightning components, with multiple base components that are the parts of the LWC framework. UI components can be created depending on these base components. 

The Benefits Of LWC 

Let’s have a look at the benefits of LWC to boost businesses.

Enhanced Performance

The main advantage of LWC is it delivers exceptional performance. The incoming data can be manipulated while working in the LWC Javascript controller Javascript. Therefore, developers can display the same whenever needed. So they do not require a service call. In addition, as they have an updated DOM render engine, developers will experience a higher speed in component rendering than Aura components. 

Faster Development

Salesforce Lightning Web Components helps the users develop generic components for absolute performance. This implementation allows the admins to drag and drop the Lightning App builder on the required pages while using a generic element. 

By using LWC, admins can avoid ViewState Error and experience a two-way binding process. As a result, businesses are deploying LWC  into their respective frameworks. 


LWC delivers a seamless experience to users, deploying responsive designs. This component supports advanced technologies like CSS3, HTML5, and touch events. In addition, it enables business owners to customize the respective elements as per their requirements.
