In this 5-10 minute introduction to the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE), you'll create and run a simple Vue.js web application.
Here the question arises- which one should we choose for our project?
This is one of the most common yet complicated questions for SMEs for their web projects. In this article, we will compare AngularJS, React.js, Node.js, and Vue.js with a view to assisting you to choose the most suitable framework for your next project.
These days, selecting the best tool for building customized web applications is a daunting task for SMEs and startups alike.
Even web app development companies are debating on the superiority of one framework over others. We have attempted to compare all four platforms strategically in this article.
Vue- Which is the Right Framework for Your Enterprise?
We will start with Google’s AngularJS framework because it has gained a lot of traction in the developer community in a relatively short time. AngularJS Google has developed this open-source, client web framework for Angular developers to solve issues of single-page app development. AngularJS was launched in the year 2010 and contributed to extending the web application’s HTML vocabulary while building robust SPAs (Single-Page Applications).
Create a project
First, you'll create a Vue.js web application project.
It is useful especially when the significant focus is on rendering performance. In the MVC architecture, React.js depends more on View (V), and it is the most popular framework in the developer’s world to solve problems related to large data sets.
As many as 40% of developers tend to use React framework again.
Why React Web App Development?It offers highly reusable components and enables developers to get server and client-side renderingIt maintains a virtual React DOM to update the changed parts randomly.
Node.js is a robust server and a crucial component of MEAN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and Node.js) stack development. Node is generally used to build robust backend services that communicate with client-side applications and simplify the complexities of app development.
Node.js-based applications can receive and send data through an API, a backend service. In Node.js development, APIs serve as an interface between different programs for facilitating communication between each other.
It is possible to use the same API for a web and mobile app to store data, send notifications or emails.
Angular architecture offers automatic and easy synchronization between the model view and the components.
Inbuilt dependency injection subsystem is quicker and easier for rapid Angular app development and testing.
Angular provides improved design structure and handles dependencies effectively to reduce the development time.
Explore the IDE
It offers highly reusable components and enables developers to get server and client-side rendering.
It maintains a virtual React DOM to update the changed parts randomly. It also facilitates native iOS application development by allowing the use of JS.
React can build SEO-friendly applications and ensure faster rendering with the easy maintenance of applications. Node can integrate a 2-way client/server communication for ensuring seamless operations.
Developers have to deal with excessive nested callbacks. Node.js developers need to work with the asynchronous execution model that requires more tasks than the linear blocking.
Add a .vue file to the project
Node lacks a standard library that can at times, make the programming difficult. Vue.js is easily adaptable and developers can integrate it into front-end development projects.
You can come up with robust apps using VueJS, as the framework does not require additional plugins or external libraries.
Vue.js offers simple and easy coding for better code maintainability that reduces bugs and development duration.
Build the project
Vue.js has the most consummate doc library for developers for making the Vue.js mobile app development process easier for developers.
You’re browsing the documentation for v2.x and earlier. For v3.x, click here.
This is definitely the most difficult page in the guide to write, but we do feel it’s important.
Odds are, you’ve had problems you tried to solve and you’ve used another library to solve them.
You’re here because you want to know if Vue can solve your specific problems better.
build npm script by configuring a post build event. If you want to modify this setting, open the project file (
Run the application
That’s what we hope to answer for you. We also try very hard to avoid bias.
As the core team, we obviously like Vue a lot. There are some problems we think it solves better than anything else out there.
If we didn’t believe that, we wouldn’t be working on it.
We do want to be fair and accurate though.
Where other libraries offer significant advantages, such as React’s vast ecosystem of alternative renderers or Knockout’s browser support back to IE6, we try to list these as well.
Congratulations on completing this Quickstart! We hope you learned a little bit about using the Visual Studio IDE with Vue.js. If you'd like to delve deeper into its capabilities, continue with a tutorial in the Tutorials section of the table of contents.
