VueJS Ecommerce

Quickly deliver unique commerce experiences with Vue and Elastic Path

Overview

Vue is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable. The core library is focused on the view layer only and is easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects. On the other hand, Vue is also perfectly capable of powering sophisticated Single-Page Applications when used in combination with modern tooling and supporting libraries.

Vue JS Features

VueJS focuses on the view layer. It can be easily integrated into big projects for front-end development without any issues.

Virtual DOM

VueJS makes the use of virtual DOM. The changes are not made to the DOM, instead, a replica of the DOM is created which is present in the form of JavaScript data structures. This is good in terms of optimization, it is less expensive and the changes can be made at a faster rate.

Data Binding

The data binding feature helps manipulate or assign values to HTML attributes, change the style, assign classes with the help of a binding directive called v-bind available with VueJS.

Templates

VueJS provides HTML-based templates that bind the DOM with the Vue instance data. Vue compiles the templates into virtual DOM Render functions. You can make use of the template of the render functions and to do so we have to replace the template with the render function.

Animation/Transition

VueJS provides various ways to apply the transition to HTML elements when they are added/updated or removed from the DOM. VueJS has a built-in transition component that needs to be wrapped around the element for the transition effect. You can easily add third-party animation libraries and also add more interactivity to the interface.

Components

Components are one of the important features of VueJS that helps create custom elements, which can be reused in HTML.
