I’m a bit confused about when/where to use render vs components. My understanding is that because components are based on the upcoming web-components spec so they should be used for widgets with no domain knowledge i.e. a calendar would be a component but a meetups-calendar would use render(with associated controller, model, view, template).
Part of my confusion is that render currently seems a bit inadequate for that job, you can’t pass additional parameters through to the controller and they’re not bound when accessed in the view (from recollection). I get the feeling that it’s not really intended to be used that much, is this accurate? Would really appreciate some clarification on this.
