Top 5 reasons to use Vue js for your next web application project
Vue.js is a flexible technology that you can employ to build modern, nimble apps without using a lot of resources.
In this article, we’ll go over the main benefits of the framework (which we’ve learned to appreciate through our own experience) and show you why it could be a good choice for your next app development project.
In another contrast to the monolithic frameworks on the market, Vue.js is incrementally adoptable, meaning that you don’t have to go all in at the very start.
Its main focus is the view layer (so UI, pages, and other visual elements), which makes the framework easy to integrate into existing projects, but it’s also a good choice if you’re building a sophisticated single-page application (SPA) – provided that you combine it with modern tooling.
Here are the reasons why you should use Vuejs for your next web application project.
1. Simplistic approach
2. Comprehensive documentation
The Vue documentation is very detailed, easy to understand, and includes various code examples. It also has a good, growing community of developers that can offer help when needed.
Vue.js is flexible and scalable.
In practice, this means that it can be used for a huge, modular SPA (Single Page Apps) as well as to construct small, interactive parts to be integrated using a different technology.
In other words, it can be anything you need it to: just a library in your project or a full-featured framework used to build an entire product.
4. A world-class command line interface
Of course, many developers are looking for advanced development features like ES or TypeScript transpilation, hot module replacement, and tree-shaking, made possible by build tools. Vue has you covered there as well.
npm install -g @vue/cli
vue create my-project
This past year, the Vue core team re-wrote their command line interface from the ground up, resulting in Vue CLI 3. It’s designed in such a way to promote best practices and a full-featured default Webpack configuration that should be easier to extend without making it difficult to upgrade, i.e., “no need to eject.” Vue CLI provides a ton of useful additional features, including an interactive project initialization wizard (available through the terminal or a web-based UI), a plugin system to support generators and configuration for community add-ons, and the ability to specify alternative build targets, like web components or as libraries.
5. Two-way communication
Vue.js facilitates two way communication 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 Binding, what that means is whatever changes you make in your UI is passed to your data and changes done your data is reflected in your UI.
Vue.js is also called Reactive because it reacts whenever your data is changed.
This is very different when compared to libraries like React.js which only supports one way communication.
