How Does Vue Work

Posted on  by admin

We're in a golden era of JavaScript libraries and frameworks. More and more companies are building out full, dynamic web apps in addition to - or in lieu of - traditional desktop applications. This means things are constantly changing and frameworks are going in and out of vogue, but the core concepts of what we're trying to accomplish remain similar.

Previously, I wrote a Getting Started with React guide that helped out a lot of beginner and intermediate developers.

What is Vue?

Vue.js is going toe-to-toe with React for popularity among JavaScript developers, so I'd like to offer the same straightforward and concise introduction for those who'd like to learn Vue as well.

Let's get started! Knowledge of HTML & CSS. Knowledge of basic JavaScript. Familiarity of ES6+ features and syntax. Node.js and npm (or yarn) installed globally.

Familiarity with REST APIs would be helpful, but we'll go over it. We're going to create a small application with Vue. The app will be a simple employee database and we'll learn:.

Vue was originally written by Evan You and the open-source community. There are two main ways to set up Vue - in a Node project, or directly injected into a static HTML file. I'd first like to take a look at setting up Vue in an HTML file, as it's the simplest setup and introduction.

How to access route params from the view

Those who have only ever used a library like jQuery will be most familiar with this method. If you've already used React or another JavaScript framework, feel free to skip to the next section. We can just create a basic HTML file and add a link to a Vue CDN in the head, and create a

with an id of app.

We can create a simple "Hello World" with Vue. Using double brackets, we'll render message in app. In the
