I think the word “component” in “web components” confused a lot of people — at least it did me.

“Web components” sounded like the web platform’s equivalent to “React components”. JSX had and now the web had .

But when you try building web components the same way you build React components, it’s easy to get frustrated and give up because web components don’t work like React components — I know I gave up a few times.
