Why do developers choose Vue
Writing web applications has received a big boost as more and more professional developers are involved. Tools are constantly being improved, because experts are interested in each new product, exploring its capabilities and comparing with the leaders in the field of development.
The release of Vue.js occurred in 2014, however, special attention was paid to this technology only in the last couple of years. The framework has already managed to cover the Asian market and continues to attract more and more Western companies. It grows like React.js framework
. But before you understand its business benefits, you need to know what the developers love so much.
According to experts, this framework is today the most flexible solution. This made it preferable for developing cross-platform applications. It can be freely used for several projects and develop additional components for different applications.
Employees of companies such as Uber and Flipkart fell in love with Vue for its simplicity in developing progressive web applications (PWA)
. PWA is gradually becoming the key trend of the market, because developers need good technology to meet the requirements of companies.
An experienced developer quickly masters any technology. But with bad documentation, it becomes necessary to search for solutions on forums and possible loopholes for correcting errors.
Due to the rapid development of technology, each application requires frequent updates and scaling. These processes are very dependent on the framework. With Vue.js, extending application capabilities is easy. Also, developers do not need so much time to correct the mistakes, if any exist.
Companies and developers often say that Vue lacks support from corporations like Google (which develops Angular
) or Facebook (actively deals with React). But even despite this, the framework has already managed to gain attention and has forced many companies to make a full transition.
In other words, being underestimated, this development environment is already making changes in the market.
Vue is a framework to which you can connect step-by-step. Regardless of whether you scale the application or not, it will work equally well for the company and users, and will also remain flexible in terms of the tools used and the number of functions.
What benefits did it bring to companies?
First of all, the developers talked about the advantages of Vue, who simply tested it as a new technology. Gradually, it attracted the attention of companies of different levels. Today, it is chosen by both market leaders and emerging brands.
Codeship is a continuous integration platform that allows for accurate and fast delivery of applications. According to the leading front-end developerof the Codeship Roman Cuba, Vue provided all the necessary flexibility to implement the company's idea. It offers a solid foundation that the Codeship team can expand at any time in the most convenient way, and the tools that the developer uses do not play a role for Vue.
For a long time, the company worked with Angular. This is a good tool, and it has successfully met the requirements of the business. But over time, there were performance problems. The amount of data that needed to be provided on the build page exceeded the capabilities of earlier versions of Angular.
According to Roman, the Codeship team reluctantly switched to an unknown product from the already familiar Angular. But the existing problems required a solution. Since Vue was easy to learn, it was possible to realize its potential rather quickly. The rendering time was then reduced from 30 seconds to 7 seconds.
Today, the Codeship is fully transitioned to Vue. The framework helps the company to organize its code and improve user interaction. It also improve testing processes.
Gitlab is a code repository management system for Git. Jacob Staz, a leading front-end developer of the company, characterized the framework as follows: “Vue is the perfect framework. With it, every problem will be yours, not the framework. It gives the developer maximum control over the situation, providing the simplest solutions to any problems”.
The company went through many frameworks, including Ember
, Knockout, React, as well as the jQuery library, which for a long time was the basis of the front end. But each had its own problems, be it a lot of mistakes, a complex framework, or not the most elegant code.
The first thing that brought the framework for Gitlab - the acceleration of all processes. The second is to simplify the work. Scaling could be done with jQuery, however, it would be much more difficult to maintain such a system.
Now the Gitlab team is concentrating on developing UX, instead of solving problems with code. Thus, new road sare open to their business.
Livestorm is a complete web-based solution for online seminars. The company assists corporations like Workable, Pipedrive or Instapage in conducting sales demonstrations or customer training.
Livestorm co-founder and CEO Gilles Bertauxsaid that they did not have to spend a whole month setting up their applications, as it happens in React. Thanks to Vue, all processes were launched within a week. “We would never be in the state we have achieved now if it were not for Vue,” said Gilles.
Unlike other webinar platforms, Livestorm displays everything in a browser. This requires a high-performance technological stack. Starting from scratch, the company intended to fully implement the idea and create a stable product.
Work on the project began in 2016, because Vue was immediately taken as a basis for front-end development. However, the framework was then little known, and the company did not know how to use it. According to many experienced developers, the choice fell on Vue only because it satisfied all the performance requirements on paper.
If the application does not work, the webinar is turned off, so Livestorm loses clients. Therefore, an incredibly stable technology is needed.
The final choice of Vue occurred after meetings with experienced developers. They said that they use this framework for their own third-party projects, and React and Angular are forced to use because of the policies of the companies in which they work.
For the development of the first MVP was spent only a month. As a result, the team received a lot of positive feedback. For the sale of the first subscription it took 5 months. However, after that the number of customers grew very quickly.
Today the company has many active clients who are 100% satisfied with the work of Livestorm. With Vue, developers continue to implement new features, improving user experience and application quality.
Vue is also the basis for market giants such as Alibaba, Baidu, Xiaomi. Adobe and Behance. All of them, without exception, talk about improving the quality of business after the transition to this framework.
If you are still thinking about choosing a technology to develop a front-end component of your site, then try Vue. The Merehead development team is ready to help you identify requirements and priorities, as well as teach basic principles of working with the framework.
