Vue + TypeScript: A Match Made in Your Code Editor

Vue is so hot right now and I’ve been thinking of doing a serious project with it since quite a while, so when the opportunity popped up, I hopped in. But there was a little problem — one of the requirements of the project was to write it in TypeScript. At first, I was super stressed about how I was going to ev...

Building a RSS Viewer With Vue: Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of this mini-series on building a RSS viewer with Vue. In the last post, I walked through how I built my demo using Vue.js and Vuetify on the front end and Webtask on the back end. When I built that initial version, I knew it was exactly thatmdash;an “initial” version. I took some time to ...

Building a RSS Viewer With Vue: Part 1

As I explore, learn, and most importantly, play with Vue.js, I’ve been building different types of apps as a way to get practice with and improve my use of it. A few weeks ago, I was reading about the shut down of Digg’s RSS Reader and while great alternatives exist, I thought it would be fun to build my ow...

What does the ‘h’ stand for in Vue’s render method?

Native-Like Animations for Page Transitions on the Web

Some of the most inspiring examples I’ve seen of front end development have involved some sort of page transitions that look slick, like they do in mobile apps. However, even though the imagination for these types of interactions seem to abound, their presence on actual sites that I visit do not. There are a number o...

We talk a lot about Vue around here, from a five-part series on getting started with it to a...

List Rendering and Vue’s v-for Directive

List rendering is one of the most commonly used practices in front-end web development. Dynamic list rendering is often used to present a series of similarly grouped information in a concise and friendly format to the user. In almost every web application we use, we can see lists of content in numerous areas of the app...

Methods, Computed, and Watchers in Vue.js

One of the reasons I love working with Vue is because of how useful methods, computed, and watchers are, and the legibility of their distinction. Until understanding all three, it’s difficult to leverage the functionality of Vue to its full potential. Still, the majority of people I see confused about this framework ...

Vue Design System

We talk a lot about Vue around here, including some practical applications of it, but haven’t gotten deep into designing for it.
