The Power of Custom Directives in Vue

When you're initially learning a JavaScript framework, it feels a little like being a kid in a candy store. You take in everything available to you, and right off the bat, there are things that will make your life as a developer easier. Inevitably though, we all reach a point working with a framework where we have a use-case that the framework doesn't cover very well.

The beautiful thing about Vue is that it's incredibly feature-rich. But even if you have an edge case not covered by the framework, it's got your back there as well, because you can quite easily create a custom directive.

A Vue.js introduction for people who know just enough jQuery to get by

Matt Rothenberg with a Vue.js tutorial playing off Shu Uesugi's 2015 article React.js Introduction For People Who Know Just Enough jQuery To Get By. Matt doesn't spend quite as much time comparing what building the UI component would be like in jQuery as compared to Vue as Shu did comparing with React, but it's just as well. It's literally the exact same UI component (a New Tweet box) as the React article, and now, 2 years later, without downplaying or knocking jQuery, most folks are ready to just jump in with new frameworks.

Remember we have a guide as well!

Intro to Vue.js: Rendering, Directives, and Events

If I was going to sum up my experiences with Vue in a sentence, I’d probably say something like "it's just so reasonable" or "It gives me the tools I want when I want them, and never gets in my way". Again and again when learning Vue, I smiled to myself. It just made sense, elegantly. This is my own introductory take on Vue. It's the article I wish I had when I was first learning Vue. If you'd like a more non-partisan approach, please visit Vue's very well thought out and easy to follow Guide.
