Is Vue.js worth it? The jury is still out on that one, as it’s still in its infancy stage. Though I’ve seen Vue.js in action and can confidently say that it is now the state of the art development tool I’ve ever seen.
One thing that separates Vue.js from other front-end frameworks is that it doesn’t try to do everything. What it does best is just one thing: present user-oriented information to the end user. It’s also called “presentational web”browser-based web”. Instead of trying to give a “complete” site, Vue.js simply presents the user-friendly side of the site and keeps the technical side to its creators.
In web applications, the complexity of the code tends to lead to larger size and higher costs, which are not necessarily the goals. Frameworks such as Angular.js, Backbone.js, and Knockout.js have become popular because they allow you to create simple, application-like websites. But there is an increasing trend among developers towards websites that are less technical in nature. They don’t always mean a simplification of the programming logic but instead simplifying the presentation of the information.
For example, instead of creating complicated layouts that render all kinds of visual effects, designers tend to use something called “skillset”. Skilled designers design websites with an eye towards functionality and a user interface that are both pleasant to look at and usable. They get the job done with ease, but still retain their artistic talent.
By contrast, Vue.js’ approach makes it easier for a website designer to manage all aspects of website building from a single project, and in many cases has the potential to cut years off the development time. These cuts can be used for programming, graphic design, and or content creation.
These cutbacks in terms of what to focus on, however, can be offset by the fact that Vue.js is cross-platform and run across multiple devices, platforms, and operating systems. This means that it’s also possible to take your Vue.js-based website and improve it for mobile devices, such as Blackberry phones.
The Framework is Older Than Angular 2? If we compare Angular to Vue.js, the former is older. However, as Angular grows and adds more features, it gets even older.
While Angular got its start in 2020, Vue.js was created by a software engineer named Andrey Goncharov, who worked on various websites before getting involved with Angular. Now, Goncharov has created a new framework called Om which is the basis for both Vue.js and Angular.
Is Angular.js Worth It? Although Angular.js got off to a fast start in terms of popularity, Vue.js appears to be catching up fast.
Even though Angular was created by two relatively well-known names in the software industry (Backbone and Pagoda), there’s still some skepticism about how widely supported it is. Some feel that it is too much of a beast to handle and some of the early demos are still considered “experimental”.
So it remains to be seen whether Angular will catch on as a full-fledged web framework. Personally, I like the angular approach because it focuses on a web application “stack”, which looks good and allows us to easily extend or replace the framework as we need to.
As for myself, I have two own websites and they both use Vue.js. I wouldn’t want to lose these advantages any time soon!
