Abstract

In this paper, we propose exploiting attributes of client-side web components to provide inter-component communication by external configuration. With the standardization of WebComponents, the Web is finally getting a uniform way to define and use client-side components. We determined that DOM elements already provide a standard configuration interface: attributes. Using the WebComponents technologies for state-of-the-art user-interface components, attributes can also act as output interfaces. By providing an AttributeLink component, new web applications can be composed directly in the markup without knowledge of JavaScript. With the integration of a multi-device supporting Messaging-Service, components can be even linked across multiple connected devices. This enables the development of distributed user interfaces.
