Mobile App development with Vue Native

Vuejs  is one of the fastest and lightweight JavaScript framework which is one of the important for today’s  UI development requirement. VueJs framework is   directly competing with   react and angular  JavaScript frameworks. React is backed by Facebook and angular is backed by Google, Vue JS is purely an open source platform which is being maintained by community and open source contributors.  I would like to bring certain points, about why  VueJs getting popularity day by day.

  • Lightweight: VueJS Is the lightweight framework based on node platform. It is very easy E and quick to set up and get started with front end development work.This Framework is scalable as well you can simply plug any npm module and start taking advantage of that module within the vuejs 
  • Faster  : Instead of directly running the code, you just build and packages the original code And lightweight and minified version of your product is getting rendered on the clients UI. because of that it makes the framework faster On any device or platform.
  • Easy to Learn:  because of very nice  templating system inside the vue JS  it is very easy to learn and start fresh development into it. by default it on any of the templates you can create HTML CSS Directly.   although it provides support for component based development as well which provides a nice feature of code reusability within the project  these features  really make it easy to learn for a developer.
  • MVVM:  unlike any  traditional UI framework you don’t need to bind model with view and you with the model. Vuejs  supports mvvm model which automatically bind model with view and view with model
  • Nice support for Mobile app development:  like any other strong framework this JavaScript Framework also provides a nice support for mobile app development . By using vue native you can create multiple mobile apps for Android and IOS both platforms from a single code base
