International trade is one of the hot industries of the new millennium. But it's not new. Think Marco Polo. Think the great caravans of the biblical age with their cargoes of silks and spices. Think even further back to prehistoric man trading shells and salt with distant tribes. Trade exists because one group or country has a supply of some commodity or merchandise that is in demand by another. And as the world becomes more and more technologically advanced, as we shift in subtle and not so subtle ways toward one-world modes of thought, international trade becomes more and more rewarding, both in terms of profit and personal satisfaction.

Importing is not just for those lone footloose adventurer types who survive by their wits and the skin of their teeth. It's big business these days--to the tune of an annual $1.2 trillion in goods, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. Exporting is just as big. In one year alone, American companies exported $772 billion in merchandise to more than 150 foreign countries. Everything from beverages to commodes--and a staggering list of other products you might never imagine as global merchandise--are fair game for the savvy trader. And these products are bought, sold, represented and distributed somewhere in the world on a daily basis.


TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) imports from the United States are expected to double in 2017 to a record and account for around for around half of its total purchases, government and shipping data showed.

As with crude oil, the American exports displace LPG from the Middle East, where regional top producer of crude and LPG Saudi Arabia is losing market share, not least due to knock-on effects from the efforts led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to cut production in order to prop up prices. [O/R]

LPG, a byproduct of crude oil and natural gas production, is a mixture of propane and butane and is used for cooking and as a transport fuel. It is also an important feedstock for the petrochemical industry.

We recently launched Construct 3 , an incredibly ambitious port of an entire game development IDE to the browser. This involved porting a Windows desktop app with around 250,000 lines of C++ code to the web platform with hand-written Javascript using the latest ES2015+ features. There are many fascinating aspects of this project which will probably produce several blog posts, but the most interesting — and pressing — aspect is our use of Web Components , particularly HTML Imports .

Web Components are made up of four key technologies: Custom Elements , HTML Templates , Shadow DOM and HTML Imports . Across thousands of lines of code, style and markup, Construct 3 makes minimal use of the first three. They just don't seem to be particularly important to this kind of app with our development approach. However Construct 3 is entirely architected around HTML Imports . They're the glue that holds the whole app together; we use around 300 separate HTML imports. Construct 3 is a huge app and imports work beautifully to break it down in to manageable components that are genuinely a joy to work with.

That's right! HTML imports are down for possible removal, or later replacement by something different. We'll be fine — we've successfully polyfilled HTML imports, so even if they're removed, Construct 3 will continue on regardless. But like most polyfills it has some pitfalls, particularly for performance. I'm stunned that such a key part of the future web platform is being disregarded, but I can sort of understand how it's come to this. So part of the reason I'm writing this post is to try and push back against that.
