Vue (pronounced /vjuː/, like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable. The core library is focused on the view layer only, and is easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects. On the other hand, Vue is also perfectly capable of powering sophisticated Single-Page Applications when used in combination with modern tooling and supporting libraries.
- Easy to Understand
One of the reasons for the popularity of this framework is that it is quite easy to understand. The user can easily add Vue.js to his web project because of its simple structure. It has well defined architecture for keeping your data, life-cycle methods and custom methods separate. It also has some great features like watchers, computed properties and directives which make process of building a modern web application a breeze. Both the small as well as large scale web applications can be developed through this framework which saves a lot of time.
- Simple Integration
- Two-Way Communication
Vue.js facilitates two way communications because of its MVVM architecture which makes it quite easy to handle HTML blocks. It seems very close to Angular.js which also speeds up HTML blocks. This feature is also termed as 2-Way Data Binding, what that means is whatever changes you make in your UI is passed to your data and changes done in your data is reflected in your UI. Vue.js is also called Reactive because it reacts to whenever your data in changed. This is very different when compared to Libraries like React.js which only supports one way communication.
- Great Tooling
Create New App:
vue create app-name
Add a Feature to existing Vue project:
vue add pwa
Access the Vue UI to manage your projects:
- Best of both worlds
As you may have heard, Vue.js is inspired by Two already great web frameworks i.e. React and Angular. It takes best parts of both the frameworks. For example, just like React it is component based and uses Virtual DOM which makes it incredibly fast. And like Angular it has Directives and 2-Way Data Binding. It's not a library(unlike React.js) and not a full fledge framework(unlike Angular). It has really great balance of features that come out of the box and It's incredibly easy to add more along the way like Routing and State Management.
We at Inkoop use this great framework in our projects to build fast and interactive web applications and We hope this article helps you learn more about Vue.js and inspired you to build something with it.
