Discussion on: Vue: When a computed property can be the wrong tool

I tend to disagree :)

const todos = reactive([
  { title: 'Wahs Dishes', done: true},
  { title: 'Throw out trash', done: false }

const openTodos = computed(
  () => todos.filter(todo => !todo.done)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Reactive todos is deeply reactive, right?
So if you change "done" prop of any of the todos, then the computed openTodos will need to be reevaluated and rerun the filter method even though the length stays the same.

Argh. It's so hard to come up with good examples 😭

Yes you are right in this case - I wasn't really paying attention to what the filter did. 😬

Will see if I can change it to be more precise.
