Discussion on: Buildless Vuejs

As far as I can tell vue cli 3 does a pretty good job at producing a clean and lean/optimized build that can be just pushed to production.

Is there a real use case for buildless-vue ? I am not being judgemental. I am not an expert on Vue.js and hence the question.

of course!! you can found several use cases, for instance, you can have your website in WordPress or something similar, and then use Buildless VueJS to create a better Register Form with fancy features like a Wizard Assistance. (I just did it in a client's website)

I usually have to work with WordPress plugins, so I really love Buildless VueJS, it allow me integrate VueJS only on specific zones and put it on a simple plugin in a very easy way.

Fair question. It's a matter of preference and needs. I suspected that my coworker hated anything cli related so I tried to make it as easy as possible for them. If the project were public facing, I probably would have used a build step (as all of our public projects do) regardless of my coworkers opinions. If I have to start another internal project, I probably will repeat this pattern because it's easy on the mind and spirit.
