What is Vue.js?
Reasons why Vue.js is a Growing Sensation among International Development Community
Vue.js is the best of both React JS and Angular JS.
Critics argue that the already existing React JS is the same as Vue.js; thus, creating the new app was unnecessary since they share the same features, such as the virtual DOM and focus on the core library others. Despite this, Vue.js is considered the best of both Angular JS and React JS. It contains the component-based approach, one-way data, performance, props, the flow of components hierarchy, virtual rendering ability and understanding of the vitality of good state app management from React JS and incorporated it together with features of Angular JS such as two-way binding and use of templates with suitable syntax.
Vue.js is a lightweight legacy of Angular JS.
Angular JS got many things right and is thus an inspiration to many new and upcoming JS frameworks. Evan You, the creator of Vue.js, who had worked on Angular JS projects while he worked with Google, had the idea to create Vue.js by extracting the best parts of Angular JS, forming a lightweight version of Angular JS that excludes the bulky concepts. This is why the syntaxes in Vue.js are almost identical to those of Angular JS; Vue.js offers improvements on Angular JS’s shortcomings.
Features of Vue.js that Make it a Sensation among International Development Community
The Data Binding feature enables you to change styles, assign classes and manipulate values of HTML attributes.
CSS Transitions and Animations
Vue.js has different methods for applying the transition to HTML elements once they are removed from the Dom, added or updated. Moreover, Vue.js contains a transition component enclosing the element that returns the transition effect, therefore, enabling you as the developer to add third party animation libraries and make your experience as the user more interactive.
Vue.js packs the aforementioned HTML-based templates into the virtual DOM Render functions. This allows you as a developer to use render functions templates or replace them with refer function.
The Computed properties feature a vital feature for Vue.js; it listens to the UI elements changes and makes the essential calculations. This feature means that you do not need additional coding to perform the use mentioned above of the computed properties.
Watchers are used for changing data—for example, the form input elements. You do not need to add additional events because the watchers do that for you by handing in any data changes, ensuring that the code is fast and straightforward.
In addition, there are three primary ways of using the reactive nature of Vue.js by use of components. They include; the methods, watchers and computed properties. You use methods when you want to make changes to the component’s state or after the occurrence of an event that is not related to the instance being altered, use the computed properties when mutating a property dependent on another property undergoing changes and the watchers when you want to carry out some logic resulting from a previous change on a particular data property. All the properties mentioned earlier of Vue.js make it a growing sensation among the international development community, among others.
