A Stencil component looks a lot like a class-based React component, with the addition of TypeScript decorators:

import { Component, Prop, h } from '@stencil/core';

  tag: 'my-component',            // the name of the component's custom HTML tag
  styleUrl: 'my-component.css',   // css styles to apply to the component
  shadow: true,                   // this component uses the ShadowDOM
export class MyComponent {
  // The component accepts two arguments:
  @Prop() first: string;
  @Prop() last: string;

   //The following HTML is rendered when our component is used
  render() {
    return (
        Hello, my name is {this.first} {this.last}

The component above can be used like any other HTML element:

<my-component first="Stencil" last="JS"></my-component>

Since Stencil generates web components, they work in any major framework or with no framework at all. In many cases, Stencil can be used as a drop in replacement for traditional frontend framework, though using it as such is certainly not required.
