VueJS… it seems like a bit of a cult
Hahahah… yes, seems like that sometimes… and there’s a reason. But think of it this way, without the backing/support of a giant like Facebook or Google, this one man project grew into this kind of powerhouse/competitor – you’d have to ask yourself why? Why is it it’s users, including ex-React/ex-Angular converts, are very passionate/big fan of this framework.
Hey, I’m in no way coming down on Vue.js. It may be the best one out there. It’s remarkable how well it’s done considering that it’s kind of the RC Cola of view frameworks.
But my point has always been that I don’t care which is best - I care which one is going to get me the job. And most of the jobs I imagine aren’t saying, “OK, please join our team and we’ll change to whatever you want.” No, you join the team and use what they use. I see people asking for React and Angular. If I see Vue mentioned it’s usually something like, “Must have experience with a modern framework like Angular, React, or Vue.” I can count on my fingers the number of postings I’ve seen that require Vue. I suppose if you are the founding CTO of a startup, you can choose whatever you want, but the rest of us use what we’re told.
The other problem is that it does seem like a bit of a cult. It’s like talking to a Scientologist. “Yes, we have been having nice weather lately. Speaking of weather, have you read Dianetics?”
But again, I only care what is going to give me the job. I chose React because I got exposure here, I like what I’ve done so far, I love having React Native, and it seems to be on an upward track. Is it the best? I don’t know. But I know that there are a lot of jobs out there for it.
