What is a Slot?


The word “slot” originates from the late 14c. and is derived from the Old French esclot (meaning “hollow in the throat”). It is also related to the Old Norse word slod. It was first used in 1520, but its current meaning is not entirely clear. Its use as a machine’s name dates back to 1888. Today, a slot is a versatile tool used to present content on a website.

A slot represents the area in the ice that has the best chance to score without deflection. Players can shoot wrist shots with a better chance of hitting the net with a straight shot from the slot. Small wingers often find themselves in the slot because defenders often lay big hits there. A slap shot from the slot is one of the most spectacular shots in the game. And, with a great view of the net, a goalie must be lightning fast to stop it!

A component is an object that can be used over again. Unlike a component, a slot has multiple scopes, so it can have several types. Using a v-slot directive with multiple values allows you to pass more than one function to it. This can be useful for libraries that reuse components. In addition, you can also use an alias for slots, such as v-slot:header=”data” or v-slot:default=”data”.
