Discussion on: You Might Not Need Vuex with Vue 3

Vue2 (2.6+) supports similar functionality via Observable.
The downside of switching to alternatives for managing state is the loss of ability to easily debug with the Vue browser extension (the vuex tab specifically). I would caution against using this large scale apps with multiple people working on it, since the conventions around vuex make team and large/long-term dev easier, but for simple apps, I think vuex can easily be replaced with something that may have a simpler learning curve.

Yes, the pro of using existing well-known tools are conventions and that people know it. You can come up with your own conventions and integrate it with Vue devtools also, but yes, it's extra work.
