Using the Power Apps component library

Through the chapter so far, we have seen the advantages of using components when building and maintaining applications. We encapsulate controls that work together for one purpose, and then we reuse them across our application.

However, if we wanted to use a specific component across several applications, our only resort would be to export this component and import it manually in each application. This process breaks maintainability because each application then has an independent copy of the component. If we update one component, all others remain unchanged.

The Power Apps component library is the solution to this. It acts as an independent library that can hold all the components you want to share across your applications. The best part is that if you update one from the library, the rest of the applications connected to this library will get an update notification creating seamless component lifecycle management.
