Ok so maybe that’s an exaggeration, and things weren’t that amazing back then, but they were certainly simpler. As a front-end developer I find myself spending more time learning the latest compiler or bundler than I do learning code or building cool stuff. Or at least I did until Vue came along.
I’m sure a lot of you have heard of Vue and how it is probably Reacts main competitor along with Angular. Since Vue was released, it has rocketed to around a million downloads a month. The creator, Evan You, previously worked on AngularJS but decided to extract the parts he liked the most and create an even better, faster framework.
Vue is extremely easy to setup and use with exceptional documentation and a massive community of developers. I was lucky enough to change jobs and decide on which framework to use for our new projects and I am so glad we went with Vue. We were debating on going with React or Vue and in the end Vue clinched it due to its easier learning curve and Vue component files.
