Vue.js + Vue Material

Vue.js + Vue Material

Vue is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable.

Vue.js + Vue Material:

The core library is focused on the view layer only, and is very 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.

Vue & React

They share many similarities:

  • utilize a virtual DOM
  • provide reactive and composable view components
  • maintain focus in the core library, with concerns such as routing and global state management handled by companion libraries

In React, everything is Just JavaScript, which sounds very simple and elegant - until you dig deeper. The unfortunate reality is that reinventing HTML and CSS within JavaScript, while solving some issues of the traditional model, can also cause pain of its own. Vue, instead, utilizes web technologies and build on top of them.

Deja Vue?

Vue has many features that are clearly inspired by other frameworks. This is a good thing; it’s great to see new frameworks take some ideas from other libraries and improve on them.

In particular, you’ll see Vue’s templating is very close to Angular, but its components and component lifecycle methods are closer to React.
