Laravel + Vue.js – The Perfect Couple

 

Vue.js is a framework that is progressive and particularly used for making user interfaces. If we observe the latest versions of Laravel, we can see that Vue also comes with it along with other tools like jQuery etc. Even in Laravel documentation, a small tutorial, as to how to use Vue components, is given. Following are the reasons why they form the best combination.

  • Everything Happens on The Frontend

Applications are mostly formed on an event-driven basis. They are made in such a way that the users have a flawless experience just like how they would have from an application set up in their computer. With this combination, all the app functioning is on the frontend and reloading is not necessary.

  • Reactive Components Make for An Excellent Event-Driven App

Vue JS also helps you make an application which is event-driven and the frontend comes completely prepared to handle the activity. The components are composable. This gives you the freedom to use it however you want. Because of how well it gets along with Laravel, requesting data from Laravel application is not hard and UI changes can be executed without having to reload the page.

Vue has great speed and performance which lets these changes happen seamlessly without utilising much of the resources of the computer.

  • Building Optimal Complex Frontend Pages

A frontend that completely runs on JavaScript is the only way to go if parts of your application require a lot of updates. With other JavaScript libraries that lack a virtual DOM, this will start affecting the performance because the volume of data that has to be tracked is increasing with every update. This will bring a noticeable lag in the performance. However, Vue components can automatically track and keep tabs on what needs to be updated and when there is a change in the data. This makes updates easy with only utilising limited resources. This also makes the entire application efficient.

Vue components also work well with Flux, Vuex etc. These state managers can track data in applications with a complex structure. This is possible due to the one-way binding model used by Vue.

  • Single Page Application

Single-page applications have been a great find. It lets your entire application load once. it exposes the application to a much wider crowd across the globe. It also gives users great web experience.

The above instances are examples of how well Vue incorporates with Laravel. Vue integrates nicely with Laravel. Vue.js is a framework that accelerates the whole process of frontend development. It also helps you achieve more but with using less code and resources. At the same time, Laravel is a powerful backend framework. This combination helps to make great and efficient web applications. Not all developers are well equipped to work with this combination. aTeamIndia is one such developing team that has experience in this area. They have great knowledge and experience in PHP, Laravel and JavaScript which makes it the ideal developer for making web applications with this powerful combo.

Is Xamarin the Best?

Recently many new approaches have been adopted to make mobile app development better. One of them is Xamarin. Xamarin is used for cross platform mobile development. Its unique feature is that it lets you share most of your code across all platforms. In spite of being a comparatively new tool, it has a large community of developers. It was built by developers of Mono which is an open source platform for development and it is based on the dot NET framework. It was first introduced in 2011 but was widely used in 2016.

Xamarin was primarily created as a commercial project. However, this witnessed a major change when it was acquired. It then became popular for being a cross platform which was used for developing apps within the ecosystem of Microsoft. This also made Xamarin more financially feasible. Microsoft came up with Xamarin SDK which is open source.

Features of Xamarin are as follows:

C# language

The language used by Xamarin is C#. This is created for making all applications compatible with all mobile platforms. It can be used for making high performance applications yet make them look native. This is possible because it has been compiled natively.

Based on the dot NET framework

C# is a popularly used language. It has a strong safety typing system which makes sure that the code does not behave unexpectedly. It is based on the dot NET framework and hence has features like asynchronous programming or async. This multipurpose code can now be used across all platforms. It also facilitates you to make a UI code which is specific to the platform. When you compare it to generic hybrid apps, they look native and have a better performance rate. It also provides users with better user experience.

Compilation

This platform also provides two products Xamarin iOS and Xamarin Android. They both have two different compiling systems. In iOS, source code will be compiled into ARM native code meanwhile in Android, the code will be compiled to intermediate language and then into the native assembly code at runtime. But all these activities will be handled automatically. It also handles issues like memory allocation, garbage collection etc.

Xamarin.Forms

Xamarin.Forms is particularly used for creating prototypes for a separate product designed which shares 100 percent of the code across two platforms. Xamarin.Mac is used to build applications in Mac OS. Platform SDKs are particularly used for providing access to platform specific SDKs.

aTeamIndia helps all leading business across the world and industries to use Xamarin for building high performance native mobile apps. You are also exposed to applications created by other developers. This is facilitated by their visual studio. Designing a uniform user interface across platforms helps you make a native user interface. This gives much better user experience and the application will behave how the users want it to. Xamarin has brought some path breaking approaches to mobile app development. aTeamIndia helps to bring this to all developers and users.
