re: Bootstrap vs Semantic UI vs Bulma for VueJS VIEW POST


Great article! I was a fan of SemanticUI before I started using Vue, and I’ve been slowly extricating myself from it because of the JQuery dependency and the project stagnation.

I’ve settled now on a Bulma CSS (not Buefy) and custom components. Bulma is a great baseline, and Vue makes reactive component interactions so easy that I don’t feel the need for a straight-line implementation like Bulma.

Bulma lacks a few things (a nice color palette like Vuetify’s for example, and non-native checkbox/radio controls), but it’s also tiny, fast, and generally doesn’t get in the way of my own CSS (a problem I had with Vuetify when I didn’t care for certain design choices in Material).


Thanks! :) I'm happy you found the article useful.

Out of interest, why didn't you try/use Buefy? On their website they have examples of non-natice check boxes that I mentioned in the article so you might want to check it out.

I'll take a look at Vuetify, thanks.


I thought Buefy was nice, but it felt like too thin a veneer over some divs and classes I could easily create myself... and I needed to learn Bulma anyway since Buetify doesn’t cover the entire footprint of Bulma. Vuetify is a very solid toolkit, I’m using it for a personal project where I need something more complete for a mobile-first site.

Thanks, I'll take a look at Vuetify; at first glance it looks interesting. I think the bold material design works very well on Android, but on a desktop site I'm yet to be convinced. I'm aware it's not all bold colours and boxes though. Thanks for the recommendation!
