This is the base class used to build Author.io custom HTML elements (web components). It provides incredibly lightweight utilities and was designed for optimizing all
<author-*> custom tags.
We're using BrowserStack to make sure these components work on the browsers developers care about.
This library must be included once in HTML pages before any
There are 4 versions of the base class available:
- author-base.min.js (ES6 Minified for Production)
- author-base.js (ES6 Unminified for Debugging)
- author-base.es5.min.js (ES5 Minified for Production)
- author-base.es5.js (ES5 Unminified for Debugging)
Each version has it's own source map, so it's always possible to trace activity back to a specific code block in the source.
You only need to choose one of these files. If you need to support Internet Explorer, older versions of Chrome/Firefox/Safari, then you likely need the ES5 version.
