What is Vue.js?

Vue.js is a JavaScript Framework used for building interactive web interfaces. It’s an extremely lightweight option that provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API. Since it’s a JavaScript framework that’s lightweight and relatively easy to learn, developers pick up on it quickly and are able to extend it very quickly. To learn more about the current state of Vue, you can check out their blog, The Vue Point.

Big companies use Vue to power their applications, too. If you’re looking to build in Vue and need confidence that it can handle your project size, or if you’re simply looking for some examples of Vue in real life, check out the list we’ve compiled.

Getting started with Vue.js is extremely easy. Its source code is very readable, and the documentation is the only tutorial you'll ever need. You don't need external libraries. You can use it with or without jQuery. You won't need to install any plugins, though many are available.” They’ve also written an update after one year of using Vue, adding “Vue works really, really well, when used properly. It turns out Vue isn't a buzzword, Vue is a workhorse. A lot of our problems have been solved, by us and others. We still have problems but, we now have a reproducible "way to write Vue." We don't adopt every new idea out there, but we have changed a few things since we last spoke.”
