  1. Open my-component.js and add the following code to the top of the file:

import React , { Component } from ‘react’ ; import { Lit } from ‘lit’ ; export default class MyComponent extends Component { // … render() { return ( < Lit src = “./my-component.svg” /> ); } }

Click on the Build tab and enter the following information:Build Settings -> Source Code Location -> Source Files LocationBrowse to where you saved your React source code and select it. Note that you don’t need to do this again for every new project you create, as it’s added to your global React settings when you create a new Lit project automatically!Under Build Settings, leave all of these settings at their default values.Next, click on the Add Build Step and select Copy Files.Enter the following information:Command Line -> Any arguments that you would like to add will go here.The final step is to click on Build Phases and click on New Run Script… on your left as shown below:This will launch a command line window with all of the commands we added earlier!

Enhancing A Web Component With HTML, CSS and JavaScript

In this blog post, we will be discussing how we can enhance a web component with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. By enhancing our web component, we will be able to create a draggable web component that works across browsers. In order to do this, we will be using the following libraries: React and react-dom.

We will start off by creating a new React project. Once we have created our project, let’s install the necessary dependencies:

npm install –save react react-dom

Next, let’s create our basic file structure for our project. We will first create a src directory and within that directory, we will create two files: DragDrop.js and index.html . The DragDrop.js file will contain our main functionality while the index.html file will just contain some basic markup. Let’s take a look at both files now:


import ‘./index.html’ /* import */ export default class DragDrop extends React . Component { constructor ( props ) { super ( props ); this . state = { left : 0 , top : 0 }; } onDragStart ( event ) { this . setState ({ left : event . clientX , top : 0 }); } onDragComplete ( event ) { console . log ( onDragStart: ${ this . state . left } x ${ this . state . top } , onDragComplete: ${ this . state . left } x ${ this . state . top } ); } render () { return ( < div > < input type = “text” placeholder = “Left” style ={{ paddingLeft : 5 }} onChange ={ this . onDragStart } /> < button type = “button” onClick ={ this . onDropComplete }> Drop );} render () { const { top , left } = this.state; return ( < button type=”button” onClick={ this . onDropComplete}> Drop { top === left ? ${ left } x ${ top } : ${ top } x ${ left } } );} });


If you’re looking to add a touch of retro style to your website, then you’ll want to check out Lit. This component lets you create draggable web components that are perfect for use in vintage-inspired designs or any other modern design projects. Whether you need a simple marquee component or something more complex, Lit has everything you need to get started. Plus, it’s super easy to use so even beginners can get up and running quickly.
