Discussion on: Why we chose Vue

I was in a very similar situation: I started with AngularJS in 2016, I took a Microsoft Virtual Academy course about MongoDB, Node.js, Express and AngularJS. A year later, a friend of mine recommended me Vue, so I refractored all the app in Vue. I just wanted to learn all the magic under the hood, so I built my components using the Vue CDN. Then, I integrated Gulp and after Vue CLI 3 release, I threw away my Gulp setup.

Today, I am very happy with Vue and I want to integrate TypeScript in my current setup. I am just waiting for Vue 3.0 release 😁

Yeah we had the urge to throw gulp away, but the way we use gulp allows us to not rely on it that much and use any build system we like with it. Gulp just calls npm scripts. Most front end frameworks generate projects with all the npm scripts necessary.

I am also waiting for Vue 3.0 to start using TypeScript as well. I have used Angular a lot. Having a framework written in TS provides an excellent developer experience when using TS.
