Overview

A common feature of user interface (UI) and development frameworks is to provide high-level building blocks so developers can reuse common functionality without having to write everything from scratch with each new application.

We offer two approaches to building a chat application: SDKs and Components. Understanding the differences between these options can help you choose which is best for your project's specific needs.
