re: Explain Vue to Me VIEW POST


If I were to explain Vue to my past self the conversation would something like this.

Old me - Do you know those Jquery widgets that you see everywhere? Those datepickers and autocomplete thingies?

Young(er) me - Yeah, I've seen it.

OM - Well... Vue is a widget factory.

YM - Say what?

OM - It works like this. You give Vue a description of a widget looks by writing a "html" in a template tag and css in a style tag, then you describe how it should behave using a plain js object, Vue will take all of that and show it to the user.

YM - And how is that any better than Jquery?

OM - If you do use Vue you don't have to be a wizard to build your own input with autocomplete. You can make one just by writing regular html, css and js.
