re: Vue's Darkest Day VIEW POST


Read your example. Thanks, but still think the new Syntax is a massive shift from the reasons we chose Vue and I'm pretty sure most of us will shift to SvelteJS if this will be what Vue 3 will look like. (or React which at least is as complex syntactically but much more commercial).


Who is "most of us"? I think Svelte is looking great but there is a lot more reasons I use Vue than syntax. The cli UI for instance is pretty neat. And again nothing is being removed for the foreseeable future...


I browsed through HN, Reddit, the comments here. There's a strong majority of Devs who chose Vue even though React was much more popular, especially 1-2 years ago, and by being more popular it also made it easier for them to find a new job/gig. So the reason they chose it was because they found it easier to pickup, more intuitive, with less boilerplate, without ugly stuff like this.handleClick = this.handleClick.bind(this);. I actively filtered 80% of the job offers I had 2 years ago and went with a Vue project.
I fail to see how setup() { dump everything here } responds to these needs. I would bet actual money if this RFC becomes reality (seems like it) that's going to be quite a big popularity hit for Vue. (sadly, because I really liked it.)
