Why is Vue.js special?

The greatest benefit of Vue is it’s absence of pedigree. It is fresh and has little baggage. It has been learning from the mistakes and successes of React & Angular. The way we see it, Vue is lightweight & easy to learn.

It has got some fairly basic docs but they do a good job, and while there isn’t a great deal to learn compared to angular – this is a good thing as it’s deceptively powerful. PageKit, Python China are two of of the projects using Vue among many. Here’s the list. Also, it has two way data binding facility like Angular and Virtual DOM like React.

However, there are many reasons for which developers are switching to Vue. Evan You, the owner of Vue describes the reason rightly

Vue.js is a more flexible, less opinionated solution ( than Angular ). That allows you to structure your app the way you want it to be, instead of being forced to do everything the Angular way. It’s only an interface layer so you can use it as a light feature in pages instead of a full blown SPA.

Bottom line of Vue.js vs Angularjs : There are many tools in Angularjs and so many complex syntax that it can confuse you sometimes. On the other hand,  Vue.js is much simpler than Angular and sometimes even better. If you are concerned about the future of this framework, we suggest not to be. This is going to stay for long and no way to fade in upcoming two years. However, development with Angularjs is still a great idea.
