Houdini - What Lies Ahead

10th July 2019 in London at Business Design Centre

There are 72 other SkillsCasts available from FullStack London 2019 - The Conference on JavaScript, Node & Internet of Things

SkillsCast coming soon.

The future of the web lies in the extension of the very technologies that its made of. Giving developers the ability to extend these technologies opens up a plethora of opportunities that can facilitate the streamlined growth and stability of the web. And that has already been showcased by the JavaScript community, by making it possible for developers to truly extend the language itself. But it's not quite possible when it comes to extending the render engine or CSS in general. That’s where Houdini comes in!

This talk aims at covering the CSS Houdini spec and its amalgamation with JavaScript, which helps in extending the browser’s render engine.

Houdini is a W3C effort to define lower-level APIs for developers to understand, recreate, and extend high-level CSS authoring features. This talk will focus on current ideas (being discussed by the Houdini working group), finalized specifications, future plans for the development of Houdini and how it will change the way you use JavaScript APIs to create rich user experiences. Imagine creating your own layouts, fill types and animations which are truly performant (most Houdini APIs work outside the main thread). Houdini makes all of this possible!
