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
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.
