Okay, What are Components actually?
Components are the self-contained and reusable units of an application. These components represent the reusable section of UI and can range from a single text to the entire application.
A Framework is something which contains a set of prebuilt components. A component can contain a set of other components as well!!
The details of a component’s implementation are being encapsulated. This, in turn, allows the consumer of a component to focus on building their app, while the component author can innovate and make changes without breaking consumers.
One can configure components by setting the named attributes that they expose in their definition. Components interact with their environment by listening to or by publishing events.
