Discussion on: Helpful patterns I use in Vue

True, but didn’t I say “too much special sauce”?

I use Vue for application structure and managing the render cycle when state changes. Those are the two primary benefits Vue offers. Yes, like other frameworks, Vue can do more than that, but I don’t just go all in because I’m using a given framework. I like to keep things flat and vanilla when there isn’t a compelling reason not to. And I like the freedom to use other libraries that are better than what the framework offers (things like dates, i18n, UI library)
