Build Fast, Efficient Experiences with a New LWC-Based Template (Developer Preview)
Where: This developer preview applies to communities accessed through Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Developer editions.
Why: Community Cloud has an existing Build Your Own template, which supports Aura and Lightning web components. However, because Build Your Own (LWC) is based exclusively on the Lightning Web Components programming model, the template:
- Delivers unparalleled performance with page load speeds that are up to three times faster.
- Includes Apex and User Interface API support, so you can access Salesforce records, SOSL, and more, to provide data-rich experiences for your customers.
How: To start using the template in new Developer orgs, from Setup, enter Communities Settings in the Quick Find box, and then select Communities Settings. Select Enable the Build Your Own (LWC) template, and save your changes. (For existing Developer orgs, you must first contact Salesforce to access the checkbox.)
After you enable the template, it appears in the community creation wizard.
