Suitable for the experienced developer and the newbie alike, Vue JS is incrementally adoptable. A quick video walkthrough is available on this page. For a backend developer with basic knowledge of jQuery, learning Vue JS will aid in becoming a full stack developer.
VueJS and its genesis
Vue was released in February 2014 by Evan You who worked with Google on several Angular projects. He sought to extract the essence of Angular without the overhead of code structuring and extra concepts.
Let’s see some basics of VueJS,
- Being a part of Angular, VueJS extracts its essence along with features from React JS
- VueJS is based on MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) software architectural pattern
In MVVM, the Model represents the data access layer of the application while the ViewModel is a construct which provides linkage/interface between the Model and the View. VueJS focuses on the ViewModel layer of the MVVM pattern. It connects the View and the Model via two-way data bindings.

Why VueJS is good for project and MVP development?
One of the best advantages of VueJS is its small size – about 20KB. It beats other bulky frameworks such as React and Angular in speed because of its low overheads.
Easy to learn
By triggering page updates each time a data value changes, Vue JS brings enhanced interactivity to the front-end application.
Vue JS has a data-driven way to deal with a DOM without touching it yourself. These two communication keeps your data in sync with the DOM without altering it.
The best of
Vue JS cherry-picks the best ideas of other frameworks such as Angular and React. If you were to define the Vue framework simplistically, it would be that it is a Lean framework.
These features make it easy to build working prototypes within short periods.
How VueJS differ from others?
VueJS vs. React
In the case of React, a state change will re-render that component and all its children. In this case, we can use shouldComponentUpdate method of each component and decide whether that component should be re-rendered.
However, this is an extra overhead. In the case of VueJS, only components affected by the state change are re-rendered making it more performant.
HTML and CSS
In React, we use JSX to render the UI. While it has its advantages, it is not ideal.
VueJS also supports JSX to render the UI when needed while using plain HTML at other times. This is more natural to read and write.
CSS in React is often done via CSS-in-JS solutions introducing a new component-oriented styling paradigm that is different from regular CSS. The tradeoff is increased bundle size and runtime cost.
Styling in Vue is through more familiar style tags in single-file components.
Both React and VueJS are very scalable solutions. The libraries offered by VueJS for state management and routing are all officially supported and kept up to date with core libraries. React chooses to leave these concerns to the community.
Both frameworks provide generators to jumpstart new project development. However, the react generator has limitations such as, it does not allow any configuration during project generation and single template which assumes that you are building a single page application.
VueJS vs. Angular
A vue2 project with VueJS, router, VueX is significantly lighter than the project generated by Angular-cli.
VueJS is very flexible with no restriction on application structure and developers like this freedom.
Vue JS is a popular framework (#2 most starred JS framework on GitHub) compared to React and Angular. This popularity is primarily because of a clean syntax, smooth learning curve, and the general flexibility of the libraries.
Let’s look at the following table to know why VueJS scores higher than the other:
Common VueJS uses
Create Proof of Concepts (POC)
VueJS considers the factor of diversity and organizations do not need an additional resource to accommodate the ‘best-of’ Angular or React. Angular and React developers can efficiently work on VueJS.
VueJS uses the template syntax from Angular and component philosophy from React.
Single page application
VueJS also extends its functionality to create single-page applications though it is primarily meant to develop web applications.
