In any business these days, the design is the silent ambassador. Developers and companies not so long ago were mesmerized by the latest functionalities and technologies. The latest elements in the software development process were introduced so that users get to enjoy a one-stop-shop experience.

However, they were missing a key element, which is the app design. They overlooked the relevance of User Interface and User Experience design while creating an app. Thus, it lowered their chance to earn the affection of their audience.

Nonetheless, these days, almost every business and brand focuses on creating a UI design that’s intuitive, as well as the latest mobile app development UI trends when making plans on an app and its design. And when it comes to a beautiful UI design, the best choice for some time now is the JavaScript framework. It has some of the finest libraries for developing a better UI.

Why is Vue Popular?

Among the many frameworks of JavaScript, Vue.js Frontend is the most popular when it comes to crafting better User Interface design.

Vue.js, designed by Evan You in 2014 is an MVVM or Model-View-ViewModel that is open-source for creating single-page apps and UIs. The latest 2.6 version is the second most loved framework in 2019. Because Vue basically has it all to make for easy and smooth development.

The first significant factor of its popularity is the gentle learning curve. It’s flexible, lightweight, high performant and modular, which is why it’s become a favourite in software development. It offers magnificent speed, thanks to its wealth of plugins that are ready to use, which solve critical concerns in each app, enabling cost-effective and fast development.

Why Choose Vue.js for Better User Interface?

1. The small size of the application. The foremost reason for choosing Vue is that its 18–21Kb size. It offers high speed despite its small size, something that makes it easier to stay ahead of the game. As a whole, Vue encourages developers to choose it for both small and big-scale application projects.

2. Higher performance. The frameworks offer high performance since it not work with a Virtual DOM only but pay close attention to shortcomings too. It furthermore comes with the ability to manage a high frame rate. The result is that it provides better performance compared to other frameworks, like React for instance.

3. Learning Ease. With its simple structure, the learning curve is relatively easy, which makes it easy for anybody to keep tabs and eradicate coding errors. Furthermore, it could also quickly develop both small and huge scale templates. This is the major reason why it’s gaining traction in the wide mobile market.

4. Very flexible. Flexibility is another great advantage of the Vue framework. It enables reputable app developers to write HTML and JavaScript templates and directly run them on different browsers.

5. Streamlined Integration. Since it’s JavaScript-based, it could be integrated easily with any existing app in which JavaScript integration is possible. This helps developers build an app from scratch and introduce elements of the framework into their existing applications.

6. Improved Documentation. The Vue.js framework comes documentation that’s well-defined. It helps developers understand mechanisms requisite and create their own app seamlessly.

7. Future-proof. After deploying the app to the production environment, you must keep it updated and checked regularly to find and fix bugs, as well as enhancements with new features added to the app. Vue makes updating easy. While releasing any major upgrade, the framework makes it as much backwards compatible as possible.

8. Progressive. The framework is progressive, meaning that it could be gradually introduced into the code. Furthermore, you could work on the app component by the component, making the whole process manageable.

9. Handy Conventions. Writing boilerplate code could be very time-consuming. The framework steers clear of the long task by offering solutions that are built-in and offering support for composing components, managing the state and animations.

10. Well-defined Ecosystem. The framework has a well-defined ecosystem, boosting the speed of development. The ecosystem enables developers to select the most efficient solution to any concern without spending hours on it.

Vue.JS Characteristics:

1. Virtual DOM operation. Vue operates via the Virtual DOM, which means that changes made while in the development process will not be directly reflected on the DOM. Rather, a DOM replica is built, which is present usually in the form of a data structure of JavaScript.

This enables developers to experiment with the design and see changes in the design of the User Interface while having a cost-effective way of an undo everything scope.

2. Templates. Vue delivers template that’s HTML-based, binding DOM with Vue instance data. The framework compiles templates to the DOM render functionality, streamlining the UI development task.

3. Transition/Animation. The frameworks provide numerous ways for developers to implement the transition to HTML elements when adding something or making an update from DOM. It furthermore has a third-party animated libraries option and builds more interactive User Interfaces.

4. Computed Properties. Another core function of the framework. It urges and inspires both developers and designers to attend to the UI elements changes and perform the calculations required. There’s no need and demand for more coding anymore.

5. Data Binding characteristic. This enables to easily set HTML values, modify the style and more with v-bind, a binding directing element.

Conclusion

The Vue.js framework is backed by an active community, it’s developer and user-friendly as well. Furthermore, it combines the best of Angular and React, making it a great competitor and deserves the recognition as the top contender among other renowned frameworks.

This year is a big year for Vue and it’s been trending ever since it was first introduced. In 2019, a lot of organizations have started adopting it to build frontend apps. For developers, it’s a great time to go for the Vue framework for learning and creating frontend apps with.

Furthermore, developers are eagerly awaiting the release of Vue.js 3.0. it’s anticipated to be smaller, faster, more maintainable and would be easier to target native development.
