button with web component

Web Component Usage Bolt Button is a web component, you can simply use <bolt-button> in the markup to make it render.
This is a button
<bolt-button url="https://pega.com"> This is a button </bolt-button>
Basic Usage To use icon in combination with text within the button, you must pass <bolt-icon> with a slot attribute defined as either before or after. Note: the slot attribute is required in order for the icon to be placed and spaced correctly within the button. Even if icon-only option is turned on, slot is still required.

Advanced Usage The web component has all the options shown in the schema table. You can define each prop within the <bolt-button> element. Use unique combinations to customize a button to your liking. Note: the style prop is named color instead.

<bolt-button url="https://pega.com" size="large" color="secondary" border-radius="full" tag="a" icon-only > <bolt-icon name="menu" slot="before"></bolt-icon> This is a button </bolt-button>
Server-side Rendered Web Components (Experimental) The <bolt-button> component, among many other web components in Bolt, will support server-side rendering via the new upcoming {% filter bolt_ssr %} custom Twig filter. Check out the docs on server-side rendering for information!
