Slot is a small opening or groove in something. It’s used in everyday life, like a mail slot at the post office, but it also has a wide range of other uses.

A Slot is a Place for Content

A slot in a web component is the place where you display the contents of that component. It can contain text, images or other elements. If you pass no content to the slot, it will fallback to a default content item.

Identifying Slot Types

Understanding how to use slot types is critical for mapping and building applications. When you add a slot, you can name it and set its properties and choosers.

Adding Synonyms to Slots is an Easy and Flexible Way

You can use synonyms to give your slot a more descriptive name. This is a great way to make your slot stand out and give it a more memorable identity.

Architect Understands Slot Types

As you build applications, it’s important to keep your slots consistent. That means naming them correctly and making sure that their properties and choosers match.

Architect is designed to recognize multiple words or phrases that describe the same slot, so it can respond accordingly. To add a synonym, simply enter the word or phrase in the field next to the slot’s value.

In addition, you can use synonyms to help you identify a slot’s purpose or function. For example, if you want to create a slot that represents the Big Apple, you can use synonyms such as “big city” and “Big Apple.” This is an efficient way to ensure that your application makes sense to your audience.
