Show-flick - The Application

Being a fan and an adopter of AngularJS myself, I was very excited when Google released Polymer. It is not that I favor an alternative to AngularJS; it is rather that I praised the efforts for a library that focus on components. I celebrated through the introduction of Polymer - when encountering that this library also have mustache binding {{}}. Incorrectly, this induce me to think that Polymer could be a flexible transition from AngularJS.

I was fast attracted by the ability to import components through a single line. No need to inject JavaScript files based on components, no need on adjusting code to make room for the new code; if the component works then it works! This was to me an exciting idea. More exciting was for me to discover that there is a community on the road of web component already on their way.

I embarked in a path of creating an application with Polymer in an attempt to dig deep into the Polymer intrinsics. Needless to say that Polymer and AngularJS are very different in nature. This post is a description of the key important features I encounter with Polymer.
